     Greetings Eric.  I have often wondered what happend to you since your accident.  You were wisked away so quick.  I was tasked to go to your crash site and cataloge your possessions and clean up the area.  Glad to see that you must be doing fine.

     There is also two Facebook sites for the 2ACR and another for Bindlach.  It's great to see a familiar name pop up.
