Re: It's Been a long time since i've posted...

Damn, Hopps! I haven't been on here in years! Just got an email telling me someone posted a response to a very old thread of mine. If you still have my number, give me a shout. I've been up to WI since I saw you at Rendezvous, but didn't have your new contact info. Would love to hook up.

Re: Intro-- Ricky " Pretzel "

Welcome aboard! I figured with a name like Pretzel, you'd be a wrestler or something. :lol:

Good luck to you!

Re: Intro - Dan

I'm right there with you, Amigo. I was 30 when I finally enlisted. You're the type who has that mental part that is such a huge part of success. Be prepared....the MEPS folks will screw you up and down 60 ways because of your age. Believe it or not, you're an old fossil, as far as Rangers go. If you...

Re: Recruiter says no option 40 left this year

I'm working everyday to increase all of my scores Ranger Mike11C11B Don't get hurt preparing. You need to take it slowly, and with OSUT....you really have all kinds of time to get your scores up. 90% of making it is mental, and you either have that part or you don't. Many great PT studs have quit. ...

Re: Recruiter says no option 40 left this year

Ranger Jim, I actually just walked in the door coming home from MEPS. I scored a 111 GT score on my ASVAB and got an 11x Option 40. I decided to quit going to the recruiters who have messed with me the past 3 months and went to a different recruiting office and they got me this contract in less tha...

It's been awhile...

My name is Piggy. I enjoy long, quite walks on the beach and poetry. :mrgreen: I've been on hiatus for awhile, but the remembrances that came with Memorial Day today kind of brought me back here. It's good to see some familiar faces still patrolling the area. Hope you all are well. To the Fallen: ~S...

Re: Memorial Day

O'Kelley, I believe that telling their stories, as you have done, is one of the things that keeps them "alive." Every time I've read your original post, it has greatly moved me. Change the names on any of those you listed, and their stories mimic those of our own buddies. I'm sure it was tough to wr...

Re: How Can We Best Honor Their Memory on Memorial Day

Gary, I've read that each year when you've posted it, and it still feels fresh when I read it. Very well written, as always, Sir. It's finally raining here in central Texas. We have been in a drought forever. The hard rain that has been falling all weekend kind of fits the Memorial Day theme in my m...

Where TF you been? Tough Still in the same place. Took a much better job back in October. Heck, I have a nice little pig pen down at City Hall now! Got one boy studying medicine at Tex Tech, and the soccer stud is still wreaking havoc on the field as a junior. Haven't had this much fun since the ho...

Re: RR 2013 Dates

Gary--if your mother made it through the banquet sitting across from Earthpig, a little freefall won't bother her a bit after THAT experience. :mrgreen: You've got to get some helmet cam footage on that!

Re: SFC Nathan Chapman remembered

I've been toasting Brother Nate since I got off of work 2 1/2 hrs ago, and I will likely continue until I run out. It's hard to believe that he's been gone for ten years. It seems like it was just a year or two ago. I tried to send his parents a message today, but the email addy I have for them is n...
