    Hello from the Great Northwest

    Born in Portland, OR, raised in the San Francisco East Bay area, CA.
    U.S. Army Oct '62-Jun 1970, only overseas assignment was 'Nam.

    First and absolutely best Army assignment was as a Missile Crewman on the then basicly residential Vashon Island, WA in the Nike Hercules Air Defense System. Being there was what convinced us we had to wind up in Washington State, which we did in 1981.

    I am a widowed, early retired father of two grown daughters and grandfather of five.

    My CCW is a Glock 27.

    That's about it, and this is probably the longest post I'll ever make.

    Looks like a great forum and I'm very happy to be here.
