Well, let's see.... Two tours in Vietnam, some wasted time in college, ended up in the CIA (Yep, that one), using the commo skills I got in the Navy. Several tours overseas (I was in Jordan when the Iranian took the Embassy hostages, Liberia, England, Kenya, and Miami (which was the worst). Rest of the time in Virginia until I retired. Now we live in Western NC in the mountains looking at Bearwallow every day. Love it. Been collecting firearms/militaria/Japanese WWII for over 40 years. That's it. A lifetime in a paragraph... sigh, such is life... but loving it.
