Was an Army Brat, but couldn't/can't serve due to physical problems (Wish I could).
God bless all of our troops! I am forever proud of them.

Ain't no slack in Fast Attack.


Grandpa was in Korea, Dad and Uncle were in Veitnam, Brother in Law is MP and has two tours at Gitmo, and my half brother was on I think Marches Soldier of Fortune cover when he was in Fallujah. The cover says Marines in Fallujah but it actually shows Army guys my half brother included.

30 years making doing 'engineer's stuff' for British Armed forces and US Marine Corps, as a civilian.
Dugmaze, I was in S.A. 1991-2 up near the border, having some 'fun and frolics' with my 'product advisor' hat on. The US military 'borrowed' our barracks, so we had to make do with the 5 star Dharan International Hotel. Such a bore! Waiter! Peel me a grape!!

Wood work but can't!
