Who Am I?
My name is Kiley Quincy Laughlin. I was born February 14, 1975. I grew up in Yuba County, California, and graduated high school in 1993. Without many prospects after high school, I joined the U. S. Army and soon afterward departed Marysville to attend basic combat training at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. I later attended language school at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California and then went to Advanced Individual Training at Fort Huachuca, Arizona. That was 28 years ago and much has changed since then. These days, I find value from helping people, spending time with my family, reading, running, and writing. I seek answers to questions, particularly questions beset by thorny problems with profound philosophical and existential implications, such as the meaning of life and the answer to the “world riddle.” I am also very passionate about Veterans’ issues and using my knowledge of Jungian psychology to help people better understand themselves.
