    Yeah, it was just a couple deployments ago I was lobbing T-LAMS at Sadam's Iraq........ Now I'm 'transistioning' (i.e....retiring) next month.

    Exactly HOW did this 'growing-up' thing happen anyway???
    I KNOW! That is how I feel. I still remember everything from Desert Storm. We got into a few firefights and hit a mine that, luckily did not go off. On that note, GoldenShellBack, have you ever been told that Desert Storm wasn't real war because it was over so quickly? I have. It makes me mad too. Just because we were allowed to fight it the way every war should be fought, from the front lines and not from Washington, we did it right and we won quickly. So some pin heads think that means it wasn't a real war.

    Just a random thought. When you were 1 years old I was 20X older than you. Now I'm only 45% older than you. Your catching up fast LOL
    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    Yes I have, and it twists me into knots listening to people look me in the eye and (try) to justify themselves......all of whom have NEVER stood a watch in combat OR peacetime. CNN 'edge-um-acated' them in real-time so they know it ALL....

    I have, this week as a matter of fact, had a 'boot-fresh nubie' check onboard and he didn't even know of the 'first' gulf war......"I only heard of the one.....", he said. I just laughed under my breath and walked out as my Dept. Chief told him to "look it up and get back with him (meaning me), tomorrow!"

    I was presented a command belt buckle two years ago, but instead of my name it just says "Pappy"

    I Love and dislike every one of 'em........
