Went to army jump school at Ft. Benning. I have utmost respect for those boys who were in LRRPs.

My brother started and finished his Army career at Ft. Bragg. He spent much of his time out of the country, all over the world, he loved the Army. I think had he not gotten married he would have retired from the Army.

To think our feet have trod upon the same blacktop oval track. :)
As I age it is hard to tell if I am inspired by reasoned passion or arthritic knees; most likely it is arthritic reasoning.

Not too many. And a couple that do live on the West Coast still have apron strings back to the SEC.... :) ...

Blasphemers! We will not tolerate SEC fans on the west coast. Ok, just kidding. Being new here I don't want to ruffle feathers, but I have a tendancey to be kind of...well...a goof. I like to have fun and poke fun, but it's always good natured.

But seriously, the only SEC team I root for is Vanderbilt. It is bad enough that there is a big Tennessee fan here at work that I have to put up with...it's...horrible. :cry:

I do hearby promise to represent the West Coast in general, and the PAC10 specifically, along with the MWC and the WAC, with honor and dignity...to the best of my abilities.

I don't care where your from or who you root for, this quote makes you OK in my book. :lol: Unless they are playing Michigan, then we just hope for rain. :wink:

I hear that they play football on the left coast....I just rarely get to actually see a game televised in hours that I can manage to keep awake.

And the games on the right coast are always during my nap time.

That would be me.

It would be...you get the prize.....

The 40's those were the days. Ft Benning has a rich history.

The 40's barracks were still there when I went through jump school....I lived in one...a wooden squad bay where guys lived in a common toom that had a head (bathroom) at one end.....
