About Pat Proctor

Pat Proctor, PhD., is an active duty U.S. Army officer serving at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.  Pat is a veteran of both the Iraq and the Afghanistan wars with over 26 years of service in command and staff positions from Fort Hood, Texas to Schofield Barracks, Hawaii. Pat most recently deployed to Jordan, on the front lines of the war on ISIS, as the commander of the Gunner Battalion (4th Battalion, 1st Field Artillery). In 2012, Pat served as the Chief of Plans for Regional Command-East in Afghanistan, planning the transition of the war to Afghan security forces ahead of the withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan. In 2009, Pat deployed to Iraq as operations officer for Task Force Patriot (2nd Battalion, 32nd Field Artillery), an artillery-turned-infantry battalion battling insurgents in Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit. In 2007, Pat was drafted to work in Iraq as part of a handpicked, 20-man team of soldiers, scholars, and diplomats commissioned by General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker to create a new strategy for the war in Iraq. Pat worked with a State Department counterpart to write the strategic communication plan for what has since become known as the Iraq “surge.”  

Pat is also an active freelance writer, specializing in current nonfiction topics of interest to military history and current affairs enthusiasts, national security policy-makers, and military professionals.  Pat's most recent book, Containment and Credibility: The Ideology and Deception that Plunged America into the Vietnam War was published by Carrel Books, an imprint of Skyhorse Publishing, in November 2016. Pat's second book, Task Force Patriot and the End of Combat Operations in Iraq, was released by Government Institutes Press (an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield) on 15 December 2011. His first book, Media War: The Media-Enabled Insurgency in Iraq was published by ProSIM Company. He also coauthored the book, ASVAB AFQT Cram Plan, published by John Wiley & Sons. Pat's articles have appeared in publications such as the Phi Alpha Theta Honor Society journal, The Historian, the US Army War College journal, Parameters, The US Army Command and General Staff College journal, Military Review, The Journal of Strategic Security, and Armchair General Magazine.

Pat's new book, Blameless? The 1990s and the U.S. Army's Role in Creating the Forever-Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq will be published by the University of Missouri Press in early 2019.

Pat also has a lifetime of experience as a teacher in both traditional and non-traditional educational settings.  Pat taught traditional history courses at University of Maryland University College's branch campus in Bagram, Afghanistan. Pat has also taught and led teams teaching literally thousands of Army leaders and soldiers in seminars, symposiums, and practical exercises at the U.S. Army's training centers across the United States.

Pat holds a doctorate in history from Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas, a master's in strategy from the U.S. Army War College, and two masters of military arts and sciences--in strategy from the US Command and General Staff College (CGSC) and in theater operations from the School of Advanced Military Studies (SAMS).  He also has a bachelor of science in mechanical engineering from Purdue University.

Pat is also the founder and has served as the president of ProSIM Company, a Kansas-based military simulation developer, since 1998.  In connection with this work, Pat has written extensively in the area of computer gaming, including articles for Military Simulation & Training Magazine and Wargamer.com and help tools and manuals for commercial entertainment software.
