    New member from Nebraska; writing from Iraq

    Good evening everyone...I want to say this site is great and I am finding a lot of great info. There also seems to be some great folks dedicated to our community.

    I live near Omaha Nebraksa and work on Offutt AFB as I am active duty Air Force, which is where Iraq comes in. I am current going on 4 months of a 12 months assignment to Taji Iraq. The wife and kids are holding down the fort at home, and doing well. I'll be home a month from now for my midtour, dreading the trip back to finish the remaining 6.5 months.

    I am also a Federal Firearms Licensed dealer, and I own and operate Marchelle Arms, when I am not deployed of course. I have started working on a website; although very crude at this point, but I am tinkering with it while I am here. I am hoping to have a new logo designed in the near future, and over the next few months; I plan to create a much nicer, aesthetically pleasing site for everyone's viewing pleasure. marchellearms.com

    Other than spending time with family (when I am not deployed); I enjoy hunting, fishing, shooting, and generally the outdoors.

    I have Nebraska and Utah concealed carry permits, and I carry the majority of the time when I can at home. Here in Iraq...I carry openly every day. :-)

    Great site; I am looking foward to visiting it often and gaining valuable info from everyone's experiences and knowledge.

    Welcome to the DC Forum from Delaware from an old Air Force member (Only 4 years, 1 in Vietnam). By the way, if you are in the Security Police you can qualify for the HR218 permit which is good in all 50 States.

    Welcome from South Carolina...Be safe and always "Check Ur Six"....
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
