…In college, I belonged to a community of arms control activists [who] relied on arms control organizations in Washington for information. Coming to Washington to contribute to the work being done on arms control was a dream for me…I arrived a few days after the start of the Gulf War and quickly began sorting out all of the information coming out of the Middle East and the Pentagon. [Later] my focus shifted to the big ticket items of the defense budget: the B-2 Bomber and Star Wars.
