It might have been on military.com because I used to spend a lot of time on there.

Glen and Lance are both good people. I haven't met them personally, but have had several conversations on here. Glad you could connect with old friends.

Hey Bryan,

Were you a member of the old Dragoon Base website? Your name is real familiar and I can't figure out why. Either that, or I remember it from somebody's "buddies served with" list.

Anyway, welcome to Dragoon Base, brother.
