Tell us a little about your cav days.
Oh, what fun! Pretty yellow scarves, tanker boots, forbidden tanker jackets worn at night, Lords of Battle on our monsters, punching holes in paper targets at Graf, stopping communism in its tracks Hooray! ...all that changes with your first RPG, of course.
Tell us a little about you now.

Welcome to Dragoon Base, David. We recently lost one of our Dragoon Base brothers who lived in Albuquerque. He is sorely missed around here but the goat jokes continue.
