The decadeafter World War II marked the remarkable worldwide diffusion of operations research (OR) from its military origins to business, industry, and governmental operations. But military OR remained an active area and a new generation of OR professionals were called upon to apply their skills to develop and analyze new applications as members of military OR organizations and consultancies. Chief among them, we find the OR military consultant, researcher, academic, and entrepreneur, Seth Bonder.
