Hello, everyone!

I'm Evil Monk, and I work as the Chief of Security for a 4 star Hotel in the Cincinnati Area.

I am a family man with a Wife (Domestic General) and a Step-daughter (Domestic Lieutenant).

I have served in the USMC ('04-'08) and have made two tours in Iraq with 1/6 (Infantry) for a grand total of 16 months "in country".

I recently got my CCDW in KY, and I have noticed a big difference in my outlook and level of comfort as a result. I suppose that some may view this as a bit of a crutch, or even a method of "compensation", but after carrying weapons in combat for a while, I felt rather exposed at home without them.

I never fired a single round in anger while deployed, but I can still see the need for a weapon even here in the USA. I guess it stems from being in Fallujah or Ramadi and reading internet news stories about the rediculous things that would happen back here in the States. I can understand war. It makes sense on a visceral level, but to see people in a land that has so much opportunity doing things that are so inhumane, I promised myself that I would not be a victim in the one place where you can protect yourself without months of training to do it!

Anyhoo, glad to be here, and I can see that I will have a lot of fun reading and responding to all the threads and questions posted by like-minded Americans.

Thank you for a site like this one!
