    OMG:Found two items I did every jump with!!!!

    I was cleaning my house here in NH and I found two things that I had on me for every training jump! I thought they were lost. They were in a flight suit I used for jumps. Just wanted to share it with you. One is a cross I got in S. America 25 years ago or so. One is a St. Michaels Medal-Patron Saint of Paratroopers. It is the one I use for my avatar.

    These two have a very special place in my heart and I thought they were gone forever!

    I know, many will think it is silly, but for me it was important.

    Just thought I would share.

    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    congrats on finding them. I am sure they do mean a lot to you and no I do not think it is silly and I am happy for you that you found them. Now put them someplace safe where you know where they are.

    That's really cool, Suntzu. 'Glad you found it!

    I feel the same way about a K-bar that was stolen many years ago. Replacing it with a new one doesn't do any good.

    Of the four Archangels, Michael was the "Warrior". Very good choice to be the Patron Saint of Paratroops. I'm wearing a St. Michael medal right now that was given to me by my wife years ago. I'd really be lost without it. I can see how you would be very glad to get it back now!

    Saint Christopher over 45 years same one I carried for two tours in VietNam. Funny how we have a bond with certain things.

    Glad you found them.

    I love it when I find stuff I thought lost. Glad you found your stuff. It always feels good.
