Recent Activity  -


I've been a mechanic, skilled laborer, heavy highway laborer, Heating and Air tech, haven't retired, but service connected problems with my back and neck have kept me grounded. I don't miss the Army at all, I just miss some of the camaraderie, shared misery, bad food, sh** house lawyers, PT, training subordinates, deployments, okay, there was more good than bad so I guess I do miss it a little.
