Tell us a little about your cav days.
I had the best platoon Sgt named Regan. We all loved the guy. Let's see, there was Steve Goodman, Thomas Schmidt, Hutchison from Philly, Mongul from Manhatten, and many more.
We'd go on patrol and observe what the other side was doing, taking copious notes on what rank and activity was happening at various locations on the border. I didn't really care for the restrictions we had at the border sometimes.
Tell us a little about you now.
I own Advanced Hearing Service in Salem, Oregon. I work with geriatrics testing and fitting hearing aids to help them hear better.
I have been happily married for 27 years and have 5 children. I have a few grand kids and enjoy being Papa. I ride a Harley and belong to Northwest Veterans Motorcycle Club.

I post an ad here in the 'Where is ?' category, and at TWS(togetherweserved.com).
I also post in Craigs List, if I know what city they are from.
And I use to use Zaba search, and adsinusa.com, but got a lot of
spam and pop-ups. So I dont use them much anymore.
