Hi - new guy from flyover land


#1

Hello, ladies and gents - this is my first post here. I am a married straight male from flyover land (Indiana) who is a U.S. Air Force veteran, a hard core constitutional conservative, a committed patriot, a capitalist, a knife collector, a gun owner, a reloader, an NRA Patron Life member and an Oathkeeper.

In other words, I am proud to be everything that the fascist left finds abhorrent. With the help of Almighty God, I will continue to be all that and more! :grin:

Welcome!

Welcome!

…and I thank you for your service, regardless of your role or rank. I respect and honor all military personnel that are not dishonorably discharged, no matter their job description.

I also appreciate your NRA support. I am a Life Endowment Member myself…and a life long gun owner.

Though I did not serve in the military, I am an Electrical Engineer and have provided design and supervision of electrical systems at US and allied bases all over the USA and overseas…in Germany, Poland, Azores, Afghanistan, Bermuda, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and a few other places I can’t mention.

In the course of working these locations, I came in contact with what must be thousands of military personnel and contractors that included almost every rank and function in the service…though I never did meet an Admiral. The people that I came to appreciate the most were among those at bottom of the pecking order…the worker bees…the drivers, the equipment operators, the cooks, the fuelers, the electricians, the aircraft mechanics.

At more than one of the POL facilities I visited, there was a sign that read:
WITHOUT FUEL, FIGHTER PILOTS WOULD BE PEDESTRIANS!

This was their way of taking pride in their job…as they should.

One of my favorite veterans was a neighbor (now deceased) that I would see quite often pushing his walker up and down the street. He wore a cap with insignia indicating he had served in WWII, Korea and Vietnam. His war stories were quite interesting and mesmerizing. He had been an airplane mechanic throughout his service life. I drove him several times to Andersonville to visit his wife and son’s grave. He is now buried with them. His daughter still lives down the street from me and has a cross and a “Thank You, Jesus!” sign in her front yard…in his honor.

Thank you again for your service.
