The staff of Military Review was deeply saddened by the loss of Arin Lynn Burgess, visual arts specialist for our journal. She died suddenly on 13 January 2022 at the age of forty.
Arin went to Marionville High School, Missouri, and later studied photography and visual arts at Missouri State University, where she completed her degree in 2006. In December 2012, she began her professional career as a visual arts specialist for the Morale, Welfare, and Recreation activity at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. In 2016, she was selected for a new position in the Army University Press, working primarily for Military Review to produce high-quality, visually appealing issues of the journal for publication.
She excelled in this job, selecting eye-catching photo images, reproducing figures and tables to professional standards, and often creating original artwork to support the themes of articles. The aesthetic upgrade in Military Review since 2016 is almost exclusively attributable to her.
Apart from her professional attributes, she was generous, kind, and congenial. Arin was much loved by everyone who knew her, and she will be greatly missed by everyone in the Army University Press, as well as the readers of Military Review.
