I was wondering what you feel is your greatest personal accomplishment, or achievement?

Simply staying alive for my first thirty five or forty years. I'm serious about this one.

My kids at least act(this may be genuine) respectfully around their teachers and people who are older than they are.

Finally getting a piece of ass from Cindy H. I had to work hard on that for a year. She was a stuck up cutie and I was a redneck boy. I spent all of 1965 working on that task. I succeded one February night in an orange grove in Polk County Florida. Life was never the same after that.

Staying alive this long...I am not making lite of the thread, I just can't think of anything of major import other than longevity.

At this moment the one that comes to mind is successfully preparing my elder daughter to be a responsible adult with good moral values.

My greatest accomplishment is the uncomfortable self-admission that my fiancee is sometimes RIGHT when she tells me that I act like an asshole. Compared to that, becoming an officer in the infantry by age 20 and having a PhD by age 30 was easy. [;)]

Overcoming the odds of being the town drunks kid, and going on to a reasonably succesful career, and after going through two wives, finding a lovely woman who likes me as I am, and let's me know that she is happy that I am around. Despite my marital failures, I did raise my son on my own, and he went on to a successful career, marriage, homeowner, who has given me two smart, and joyful grand-kids. One of each. Life was sometimes difficult, but always rewarding.

My wife and son. Actually my life in general considering where I was a couple of years ago. Outside of that I have a couple of kick ass friends that mean more to me than just about anything. When you find a true friend that counts more than ALL of your aquaintences.

... Personally, probably being a good uncle, brother and son. ... Professionally, probably being a good part responsible for fielding the MD900/901 Explorer and the AH-64 Apache helicopters and variants. ... Selfishly, probably having good friends and family that surround me.

Surviving to 32 years old! Really! Defeated severe dibilitating depression, suicidal tendencies, overcame the trauma of my mother being sick most of the time I knew her and her sudden death, the torment that her problems I didn't understand and in turn, took my frustration out on her. The marital problems that my parents had. Tons more stuff but I overcame most of it. I still bare some scars but I manage to deal with them. I have barely begun to realize my personal potential even though everyone I know says I have so much of it. Then there's my daughter!

Being a son, a brother, a volly firefighter/EMT, a Christian, a friend to many, a 911 dispatcher, an atv rider, a dog lover, a hunter, a fisher, a firearms enthusiast, a mentor, a shoulder, proud, truthful, honest, caring, helping, fun, everyday type person. I am nobody special. But I am, at the same time. My greatest personal accomplishment is that I am me.

Marriage, Children, family aside I would have to pick from a few. Serving as a U.S. Marine Graduating from OCS (National Guard) Being a Cop But the thing I am most proud of is conceiving a plan and chairing a committee to build a memorial to Peace Officers that have been killed in the line of duty. A monument now sits on the grounds of the Stark County Court House in Canton, Ohio. It is 60,000 lbs of Barre (Vt.) granite. It lists the names, Departments and dates of death of 15 Peace Officers who have given their lives in the service of their communities from 1907 through 2002. It is seen everyday by the Judges and Prosecutors of the county. It is visited by school children and people passing as they walk by the Court House. It is visited by widows and children of the officers who are listed on it. It is visited by Officers who's friends are listed on it. It is the scene of an annual memorial ceremony. They have a place to remember because 10 years ago an idea came to me. It was a good idea so I went with it. and a year later the monument was dedicated. Since that time I have rarely mentioned my involvement and only a handful of people remember how it came to be. I prefer it that way. I only mention it here because I am relatively anonymous.

Kids...Amazing I could have 2 beautiful children while being so butt-ugly. Going back to school and getting an MBA while working. I flunked so much math in High School and College that nobody (except Mom) thought I could do it.

Becoming an Eagle Scout. Then coming back after 5 years or not being a scout and turning their shooting sports program around and personally teaching over a thousand kids a year how to shoot a rifle.
