      Ok Dave... haven't attained that "new normal" I'm still praying for these 3 yrs. since my wife died...maybe i never will.

      Yea been pretty hot here too, drives me to try and leave early on my scooter an flog it up ta gold rush country for ah cold one.

      Your dog brings back many memories....hope she's with you many more years Buddy.

      With Carol gone on ahead an no shootin' buddies with the same interest as me, think I'm going to keep some of my WWII collection and sell the rest...never thot I'd do that but my life has little resemblance to what it was,

      always your friend,

      I saw where you said you were in Okinawa with an M14. My home base was Camp Schwab in 1963/64 and I also carried an M14, kinda figured that might put us both there about the same time, although I spent a lot of time floating around with the 7th fleet, Okinawa was still home. Roy

      Thank you for the kind words. I didn't mean to sidetrack jetgirl's thread, but have had this on my mind since Sunday. It just came out, and I'm trying to figure out how to juggle everything. Life is too full of unwanted surprizes, it seems.

      Thank you very much. I am with 2/1 getting ready to head out again. This will be my first Division deployment, but I am not stranger to combat. I have a tour under my belt with EOD and we got into a lot of firefights up there last time. Unfortunately, I had to use my skills on people I knew very well. War is hell. I was a paramedic/firefighter before I joined and I thank god that I have the experience to know what to do. Thanks for the kind words brother.
