    If need be, put me in Coach, I’m ready to play, today. Not as good as I once was but I’m as good as I ever was…ONCE! Decrepit and old as I am I can still pull a trigger, a lanyard, or turn a launch key. “Away boarders, once more into the breech lads!”

    “…behind every blade of grass…” From my cold stiff fingers amongst a pile of hot expended brass.

      Army Retired Reserve here, still subject activation if certain conditions are met that triggers such an action. :mrgreen: Doing predawn distance runs has more than one benefit, being able to transition into the Army’s physical regimen is one of them. :mrgreen:

    Can’t speak for ground forces, but I can say China is trying very hard to mount a blue water Navy. They ain’t there yet.

    Just sharpening the blades, and cleaning the rifles. Ready if you need me, but not upset if I just have to watch from the bench!

    Russians. Always had great camouflage battle uniforms.

    America. Lost their way for about 20 years.

  5. I watched a little of US Special Forces vs russian Special Forces and when I clicked it off, Who’s face shows up on other youtube features is the late FDNY Capt Terry Hatton of Rescue 1 whom we lost on 9/11. Title of video is Still Riding. Terry was also a Volley FF in the LBFD on Ladder 2 (2362) as I was at the time before I had an injury and had to transfer to a support company. FDNY FF Kenny “Igor” Marino of Rescue 1 was also a Volley FF on Engine 2 (2342). Video covers FDNY Rescue 1 and 2 before and after 9/11. Terry moved to Manhattan and married the Mayors Press Sec. and she was expecting when Terry was lost. I used to see him and his rig a number of times when I was driving the truck and would often wave to him. On our Sunday drills, if he was not working his regular job, he would give us tips on things that he learned but he would never say that this is how the FDNY does it unlike some of the other half dozen FDNY/LBFD Volleys say when they are at a Sunday “Volley” drill. RIP Terry and “Igor”, It will be 19 years this Sept. since we lost you guys.

  6. On my above comment, I forgot to mention our fellow worker Joey Trombino who was a Korean War combat vet and was wounded in one of Chesimards group terrorist attack on the truck he was riding in making a bank delivery/pickup. His remains were I’D by his revolver was found a couple of months later in the towers stairwell with other remains. Dispatch told him just to walk out of the underground parking lot to street level but he was worried about his co workers delivering foreign currency to Bank of America whom when the plane hit made it out of the building. RIP Joey.

      So many people in and around those buildings demonstrated their quality in their final moments that day. Quite a few more showed their lack thereof afterwards.
