Hello, I'm Reguyla. My username is formed from a combination of letters from my first, middle and last names. I live in Virginia, USA and just for the sake of clarity I am a male.

I retired from the Virginia Army National Guard and I was active duty in the United States Marine Corps for 13 years until I got hurt and was discharged. I also work for the United States Navy in Washington, DC. I have two Master's degrees from the University of Maryland; one is in Biotechnology security and defense and the other is in Business administration. I also have a Masters degree from the Naval War College in National Security and Strategic studies and a Masters certificate in Legislative affairs from Georgetown University.

Some milestones

  • September 4, 2013 - 1st edit on Wikia

Other projects

I primarily edit the Military wiki but I also have edited a number of others including:


Stuff I'm working on

Build up the project Phase 1
  1. Import Milhist articles from Wikipedia
  2. Remove ntemplates, links and crap (Persondata, stub tags, portals, maintenance tags, Wikipedia specific, nonmilitary links, etc.) - Working
  3. Link to Wikipedia article where appropriate
  4. Create or import missing templates that are needed and useful - Working
  5. Pull in images for Medals and high use photos - Working
Phase 2
  1. Create assessment of articles possibly similar to the assessment system in use at Wikipedia. Potentially use rank symbols like 4(Featured quality), 3(A-class), 2(Good), 1(BClass) stars and maybe Private for a stub and Sergeant or Capt for a Start.
  2. Once assessment is developed, tag the articles as applicable
  3. Develop some collaborations (Military history project on Wikipedia, National Archives, Naval History, others)
  4. Restructure main page.
Phase 3
  1. Create articles for missing ships
    1. Start forming lists
  2. Create articles for missing MOH recipients
    1. Start forming lists
  3. Create articles for missing American Civil War generals
    1. Start forming lists
  4. Other missing articles
    1. Suicide in the United States (separate article for each branch)
    2. Hall of valor website

"We have known the bitterness of defeat and the exultation of triumph, and from both we have learned there can be no turning back. We must go forward to preserve in peace what we won in war. A new era is upon us. Even the lesson of victory itself brings with it profound concern, both for our future security and the survival of civilization. The destructiveness of the war potential, through progressive advances in scientific discovery, has in fact now reached a point which revises the traditional concepts of war."

General Douglas MacArthur
