    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    To you Lifers: thank you for your service!

    9 years of moving the family every time you turn around was enough for me. And that included some wonderful assignments: Ft. Sam and the Presidio.

    Royal Marines but it was so long ago that it should be put in the past- except for the experience.

    But I was a Rock climbing instructor- and there isn't much use for one of those in the Desert. What was usefull though was my main occupation and this is why I saw the world, even the desert and on board ships, over the 5 years I was involved in it.

    And one of the best skives you could ever get into. The boxing team.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
