Karl Gotthardt is a retired military officer, who has served 35 years in the Canadian Forces, both as a non commissioned officer and as an officer.  Most of my time was served with infantry battalions.  Some of my time has been in National Defence Headquarters, NATO SFOR Headquarters in Bosnia  and Brigade Headquarters.

For the past 22 years horses have been my passion and I have done breeding, training and of course riding.  Another passion of mine is soccer, especially the German Bundesliga.

For the past two years or so I have written articles on Afghanistan, American and Canadian politics as well as other general interest stories on citizen journalism websistes such as nowpublic, allvoices, xomba, neembus, triond, hellium and news-public.

I hope to contribute at least a couple of times a week.
