  1. Muster rolls from units ca; sometimes be obtained from the National Archives. I was able to get copies of the 2nd Dragoon Regt records of 1836 when researching a Seminole War program for the Florida Park Service.
  2. G.I. beans and G.l. gravy Gee I wish I’d joined the Navy Technically of course a Jody call has to contain Jody. Otherwise it’s just a cadence call. But a lot of Jody calls are not suitable for this forum.
  3. Back from the Mayo Clinic in the hell that is Phoenix. No good news at all unfortunately. We will be heading back down for conferences with the oncologist on Monday. Hard dang times. Edit 3pm 2/7: Just heard from them that they want to do a biopsy on Wed. Two more days in Phoenix. Had a sit down the the oncologist today. Some relatively encouraging info. He’s recommending immunimo therapy. Much better than chemo. The fly in the ointment is where we live. No nearby top notch facilities or oncologists. So we’re examining options and may have a plan developing. May involve moving temporarily to Charlotte NC Still scheduled for the biopsy on Wednesday and keeping our fingers crossed. I still feel mentally like room temperature SOS but slightly more optimistic. After a biopsy procedure on Wed we traveled home yesterday. Managed to make it out of Phoenix alive. At least we had good weather for the 8 hour drive. Waiting on the biopsy results which should take 3-4 days. Had no time to get flowers for Valentine’s Day though.
  4. As stated. Only one medal or ribbon of the same type will be worn. The Army Commendation Medal and the Air Medal are also awards that can be for either meritorious service or valorous conduct.
  5. It’s been used in the militaries collectors community for years. Not sure why it spread recently.
  6. You have to be a real expert to collect those today. There have been fakes on the market since the 1950s. Daggers and medals. Very hard to tell the originals from the repros.
  7. I knew the guy who invented that. Didn’t sell many until Guns and Ammo ran an article about it. Then he got rich. My wife worked for him for awhile. She said she opened hundreds of envelopes with checks in them from 8 to 5 every day.
  8. All cancers are bad of course.Lung cancer is rough. My mother only lasted a few months. But Pancreatic cancer is almost impossible to cure. I think I believe Alex Trebek is battling it but I’ve never known anyone who survived it. I have never been a fan of Limbaugh but my heart goes out to him and his family during this difficult time.
  9. Not for long I’m afraid Heading back to the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix tomorrow.
  10. I get a lot of knives from https://www.bladehq.com in Utah. Their shipping is only a couple of bucks and they have hundreds of types of knives from really cheap to really ridiculous in price.
  11. Not real footage. We’ve never shot down any Iran launched missiles as far as I recall. I believe that The Phalanx system is primarily for Cruise middle defense and would be relatively ineffective against the types of ballistic missiles that were used. The Patriot system is designed for that.
  12. I like these. They are light and small. But there is always a trade off when going from a larger more powerful pair. A 42mm has better light gathering capabilities than a 25 obviously. But these have excellent clarity and are easy to pack. I use the larger pair from the house or ATV if I’m not walking much. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000NO5OYA/ref=as_li_ss_tl?SubscriptionId=AKIAJO7E5OLQ67NVPFZA&ascsubtag=203418607-2-224285946.1580078420&tag=shopperz_origin1-20#customerReviews
  13. In Holland, my people love it.
  14. I just popped in for a few minutes to catch up on Saloon craziness. It’s an 8 hour drive from here to the Mayo Clinic for Carol’s tests. Went down Wed and came back today. Kinda tiring. Not to mention driving around the hideous megalopolis in that insane traffic!! Have to go back next week for more procedures. Hoping for good news and trying to remain positive but it’s pretty hard. Nice to be back in the country for a few days anyway. Thanks for all your kind thoughts and messages.

  16. Seeing as how they had only been in the Army long enough to get haircuts and duds, that’s to be expected. Also the sound track is a bit off in that video.
  17. Understandable confusion. Bear Arms Bare Arms. Bear Arms
