Went to the courthouse to get a copy of my deed for BAQ when I in-process the first week of Feb. I was collecting all of the paperwork, trying to be prepared. Anyhow, I interrupted the deed clerk's lunch. I asked very nicely for a copy, telling her why to hopefully ease the intrusion into her lunch. She said no problem, printed it out, the copy was crap due to low toner. She went and pulled the deed, photocopied it, came back. Asked me what branch, what would I be doing. Parachute Rigger, 82d, no Infantry (until I re-up) this hitch [:(]. I told her to shake up the toner cartridge to make it last awhile longer. When I pulled out my wallet and asked how much the fee was, she said it was on her, least she could do for someone going Active. There is hope in the world yet...

11h1p I try to do my part. I spend half of each year in a beach town in Thailand where the US Navy takes leave. Whenever I spot the boys in the bars I buy 'em a drink and if they are interested help steer them to the good places in town. The least I can do. James

11h1p, it sounds like you're just fixing to hit basic. As an active 11B1P, I wish good luck to ya, but don't get in a hurry callin yourself this or that till it happens. A ton of people sign and are "gonna be Airborne and go Ranger" blah blah blah. Lots can happen in basic, AIT and jump school. Good luck.

Oh, BTW, Board members here are excepted- I feel the love every day from you guys, just a little shocked that local gov't (typically demorats) types shine through. I was truly touched, as over the last 8 yrs I have become rather jaded by the masses.... Thanx for the expl, CLP Bear, I remember the WHOLE sequence very well, but (ED Senior) THE @$(@*&$@(#*&(#$& sig line is only 150 characters!!! grumble grumble New poll- should the signature line in the profile be expanded to 300 characters? YES!

Where were you when I hit the beaches in Pattaya? Don't believe there was a "bad" bar in Pattaya[;)]

JimmyB How is Caligula (our favorite unit bar for Cobra Gold in the late 80s) and Marylyn a go go (my personal favorite)

Happy, You are correct...I remember P Beach very well. Could have done without being stuck at Utapao airport for two weeks though.

Hey 11, sorry to jump to conclusions bout ya, sounds like you already been there and got the T and all that. Did seem odd, not many 18 year old wannabe's would be pickin up a deed. I'd like to know why you left, came back and what your plan is for the rest of your career, might give some folks stuff to think about. Welcome back .

Paul - why yes. I do live in Pattaya Beach half the year. Good guess. [beer] xsquid - hell man, depends when you were there. I think some bars are better than others. Some offer fair prices and "friendly" service while others just try to reach into the boys pockets. Or, if they want something special and don't know where it is I can direct them. Unless it is Boys Town, which I know WHERE it is, but what goes in I do not know. [shock] Happy - Sorry Caligula is gone (or I never heard of it. If it is a gogo larger than 3 girls I've heard of it). Maralynns is still going though. I always felt a bit sorry for those birds and frogs [rolleyes] I'll be off the board in a few days as I am flying back to Pattaya on Tuesday. (sigh). Someone has to do it. James
