    Happy Veteran's Day Boys and Girls. Now get that area squared away or you'll be standing tall before the man. Here's a shot of your ole buddy Dean, chasin' Kim Jong Un's grandfather (Kim Il Sung) all up and down the DMZ (2nd Infantry Division 1979).

    A lot of the AC Casinos have freebees also,but that could turn out to be an expensive free meal.

    This thread gave me the kick in the butt to find some pics of my Navy days. First one is early in my Navy career somewhere in the South China Sea. Second one is with a couple of my fellow sub-hunting buddies during some pretty good liberty in Thailand.

    One of the Army's less publicized methods of stemming the tide of global communism was to have sergeant Robinson wheel about the Monterey Peninsula at alarmingly high speeds. This proved to be very effective as, you will recall, neither the Chinese nor North Koreans invaded during the 1980 to 81 timeframe. What a beanpole!!!! I might have weighed, sopping wet, about a hundred and thirty five pounds! Max! :haha::haha::haha: This was taken at Toro Park, which was not far from Fort Ord (which is no longer in existence, a victim of BRAC). It was a favorite spot where our platoon would picnic on Sunday afternoons. 'Cause on Monday morning...formation at o-six-hunnert!
