    What's the story behind your avatar?

    Mine is simply a pic a friend took of me at the range, my butterfly tattoos were still pretty new at the time (one for each of my kids) I've just always liked the pic.

    My dog. Her name is Africa, and since I am too paranoid to put my face on an avatar, this is as close to being personal as I get. I do love the dog though.

    I resembled Zonker Harris of the Dunesbury comics while I was in college, and my friends just started calling me Zonker. It stuck. Its funny that I was studying Political Science at the time
    and was about as far left as you can get without falling off the earth. Amazing what 30 years in business, raising several children, and marrying the wrong woman will do to your view of world.
    Currently, I'm so far to the right, that Atilla the Hun and I are members of the same club.

    Mine is of the stripes I wore when I retired from the USAF. While I frowned on being called "Sarge" by my subordinates (at least officially ), I was smart enough to know when it was used respectfully.

    While many have different views as to whether the A-bombs should have been or needed to be dropped, my only response is; How many of you exist today because your fathers or grandfathers were not killed invading mainland Japan? How many family lines would have ended after August 1945?
    Me, most likely. My dad was on the Japanese mainland invasion task force. He never talked much about WWII when I was growing up, but in his latter years talked more and more about it. I knew he was on Christmas Island for 2 years, and that he went from there to Tarawa in the Gilberts. What I never knew was that there was a battle there at the end of those 2 years where the Japanese routed the Americans from the island, and that's how he got to Tarawa. I tried to get as many of his stories as I could before he died. It's quite amazing that my dad and all my uncles went to war, saw action in Europe and the Pacific, and all came home alive.

    BamaT you have some precious memories. My granddad never told anyone any of his stories until I got out of the Marines. When we were alone he told me quite a bit of interesting stuff. We were watching Patton one afternoon and he vividly remembered the scene where Patton hit the soldier that was suffering from "shell shock". My granddad had been injured and was just a few yards from the scene. It is a shame he didn't share any of his stories with my mom or uncle but he just thought they wouldn't be able to understand.
