Jordon, if you haven't been to indian country yet, all I can say is leave any demons at home, too much other stuff to think about. If you have soldiers under you, train the right. My biggest fear when we were on the road was loosing one of my soldiers. But they understood their mission and we did it right. If you've been before then you know what I'm talking about.
The men I work with are very well trained and we work very well as a small team. They are like my brothers. No....they are my brothers, and losing any one of them would affect me deeply. I trust each man's capabilities, otherwise they wouldn't be part of my team. I know what you mean about leaving the demons at home......the mind has to be clear for the instincts and the training to work correctly. Thanks for everyone's support. And remember......you don't have to support the war to support your troops.

do you know the marines (i think) have more boats than the navy

My dad was in the army in bulgaria lol he told me about one of his stories (i'm about to turn 19 june 1st).. he used to drive a tank So he is tightening down a big screw.. he said the threads part was about 3 cm which is abit over an inch in diameter.. so he is putting pressure on it (he is body builder so hes quite big) and he is using a huge 5 ft pipe in the back of the wrench lol and he is putting pressure and all the sudden his leader shows up and he is like didnt you screw that nut already and right when he said that the whole thing snapped off lol then he started chasing my dad to hit him and you see my dad hiding inside a barakade lol. In bulgaria we are required to go to the army when we turn 18 or 19 so the leaders are a bit nicer so its more fun.

I wasn't in the military but my Dad fought in WWII on Okinawa as well as other places in the Pacific and my oldest brother was in the marines. I'm proud of their service and thankful to all who have served our country.

Unlimited Not me, but this is my friend (and the best man in my wedding 25 years ago) Dr. Ben. After years of being director of Emergency Services and a major Washington State hospital, he gave it all up and went active duty National Guard. He is now a Science Officer on a WMD team. He has done a few tours in Iraq as a field surgon attached to a Royal Marine unit. I'm proud to be his friend. I tried to see if I could join the guard a few years back but they wouldn't have me, said I was too old. Their loss.

Scotty355 I was in the Army for 6yrs, 3yrs in Korea, 6 months in Honduras, 2 yrs in Ft Lewis Wash, and Desert storm.
Sorry no pics lost everything in a fire years ago
04-05-2007 09:47 AM
kg4kpg US Army for a while as an artilleryman. Desert Storm, lots of fun with an 8" howitzer. Nothing like firing rocket assisted projectiles 30 miles away at enemy airfields. We also fired against Iraqi T-72 tanks at 2000 meters.
This is just a file photo for reference.


Now I'm in the Natl Guard with one additional tour in Iraq done and waiting on my next trip.
