REFLECTION PAPERS INSTRUCTIONS
For each Reflection Paper, write 900–1,000 words reflecting on your reaction to one of the
assigned articles for the course or open-source scholarly references. Do not use this as an
occasion for research, but rather as an opportunity to reflect on what someone else has written
and published. You may focus on the value of the article for the study of military intelligence or
on what lessons are offered in the article. You may reflect on how a Christian might or might not

must cite a minimum of 3 scholarly sources according to current APA format. See the attached
