    No doubt Roy you would have served if allowed. You are acutely aware of what our freedom is worth and would rather die than give it up. You have a lot of company here.

    Understood Roy, I don't fault anyone who didn't serve especially if they were not able to. Only if you didn't serve and knock those who did in as Dip and Fitter have done.

    Some of my buddies were married with kids and others like yourself were unable for what ever reason to pass the physical or who otherwise had other issues and I don't fault them.

    Only those faggot hippies burning the flag, protesting the war and calling us Nam vets baby killers and or never registered for the draft or hid out when called to serve. Those are the ones whom I find fault with.

    Your a good man Roy if you could have gone in I would have been proud to serve with you in the 11th ACR and also with most of my other friends here in ARP. Thank you, thank you very much

    "I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution."

    Good article G!

    Boy you can say that again. I came here to be a pilot, but due to a terrible accident, had my left shoulder broken in several places, took me many years to get it to work somewhat normal. But it took me out of my long life dream of being a pilot, including maybe law enforcement.

    So, I talked my last wife to join the Air Force, she did, and ended up working on the F15, kind of funny since I knew the F15 like the back of my hand, studied it for many years. My wife worked on the avionics system at that time, and then graduated in to other systems, I rather not talk about, not sure if I should.

    She didn't like working on the 15, considering she used to lay in cockpit to fix stuff, not to mention climbing on a ladder to change the radar unit. I can understand it..lol. She used to work second shift cause she hated working in the cockpit with the hot Florida sun shining on it ..grin.

    Sometimes life works in weird ways, but I just did the best I could under the circumstances. It is what it is.

    I feel the same as you when it comes to talking about military things I know. Our enemies probably know a lot more than me but I'm still not going to share much even if not classified.

At least Pelosi being interviewed would not go there. All class and not a a**.
    Are you still upset?

    Same here, Wayne. I would never divulge any of the old mission-critical stuff from my time serving in The Corps.

    I swear on the Constitution, our enemies could go ahead and outright torture me, but they still could not force me to reveal even one fragment of the methodology we used in The Peace Corps' Sub-Saharan English teacher training program. Waterboarding be damned...they would not get one lesson plan from this wiley old educator.

    Mine are rusted and broken to the point of non use. Too old to buy new so just burn offenders at the stake now days. If they survive then I let them go as they must have been innocent. Seems fair.
