Hi! I am John, a LT in the Navy. Currently temporarily stationed in Iraq, normally (for the next couple of years) at Whidbey Island, Washington. I am normally an open carry guy, with a Taurus Mil Pro .45 ( I know), but I do have a WA CPL. Nice to meet everyone here!

Welcome from Alabama
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
Welcome, and thank you for your service to our Country!

What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
