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.

Just lookin round on the web and this one looked cool. I might change it later if I find something that catches my fancy any better.
Mine is an homage to the ultimate in Open Carry.
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.

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.
