|Post subject:||Hello all|
Well, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m the new guy here. A little about myself:
Born and raised in a smallish town (Milwaukie) outside Portland, Oregon.
Drafted (among the last) into the Army in 1972.
First the Army made me a Watercraft Operator (landing craft) - I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t swim.
I switched to the Artillary as a Forward Observer in 1974 - after I got Ã¢â‚¬Å“just missedÃ¢â‚¬? by my own units guns, I asked myself what the future looked like for an ex-FO in the civilian word; the answers didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t look promising.
Made my final switch to what was known as the US Army Security Agency (USASA or ASA) in Ã¢â‚¬â„¢76 - loved it!
When they deactivated ASA in Ã¢â‚¬â„¢78 I remained with Military Intelligence until I retired in Ã¢â‚¬â„¢94.
Today IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a sergeant with a Department of Public Safety (College Law Enforcement).
My hobbies are -
Firearms - Collect, shoot, and teach. I shot competition for almost twenty years, taught (coached) for about eighteen years, was a Plant Manager for Kimber Firearms, etcÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
History - Especially Historical Reenactment (French and Indian Wars, Civil War, and American Mountain Man periods).
Gaming - Primarily Strategy (Age of Empires, Total War, Civilization) and First Person Shooter (Rainbow 6/Raven Shield, Call of Duty, AmericaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Army), and have recently decided to try out Flight Sims (Microsoft CFS 1, 2, and 3; and now AH2).
Teaching - (OK, this is also one of the jobs IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve had / I do - but I do it for free also because I like it.) Shooting (as mentioned above), Hunter Ed (specialty classes like handgun hunting, muzzleloader hunting, tracking/trailing, survival, etcÃ¢â‚¬Â¦), Use of Force, Baton and OC, Field Training and Evaluation Program, etcÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
Photography (just getting back into it after twenty years away - love these new digital cameras)
