Hello comrades-in-arms, past, present or future.  I served twenty-two years in the US Army, primarily as a tanker.  I am a veteran of the Gulf War and retired in 1997.  I have been both an enlisted man and an officer.  As an enlisted man I attained the rank of Sergeant First Class (E-7); as an officer I became a very senior Captain and company commander. I went to OCS in 1981 for my commissioning. I will be more than happy to share war stories or wisdom regarding the Army or the military in general.

Hunting Big Game if you Could?

So imagine a world where elephants and rhinos and tigers and other big game of the 1800s HADN'T been hunted nearly to extinction.  Imagine we lived in a fictional world where all the big game animals of the earth were not endangered -- they were all of least concern.Holding this vision in mind, would you find it appealing to go hunt them?  It's interesting reading all the Allan Quatermain books because at times, he tells of the hunt with great thrill and excitement and at other times he talks…See More

"Atheists start a fight by labeling Christians child abusers ... then claim the fight they started demonstrates that religion isn't peaceful.  Its difficult to believe you couldn't see the problem with that before you posted it. JB"
