Congrats to you. :beer: I am approaching my half way point so it's starting to look like a down hill trip from here. Congrats and thank you for your service.

FYI I sent you a PM on your request to shoot a Harli in Washington.

Congrats on the retirement, if you flew for the 54th we most likely worked together at one time on a rescue out of yakima.

Thanks for your years of service!!

Congrats to you and your family for your 20+ years of service. You fly boys are the Infantry's heros in Afghanistan and i appreciate all the efforts you and your buddies do for us on the ground.

My wife is retiring from the Army after 22 years and 4 deployments this summer. I have 20+ myself and was going to retire but they asked me to go to University of Seattle to teach ROTC, could not pass that up. So i hope they have good duck hunting there, because the dog and I are ready for hunting.

Good luck to you and thanks again. :beer:

Thank you and best wishes to you and your family with your retirement. I have many great memories of Washington State. I flew Medevac out of Fort Lewis and Yakima and it is a great state for Waterfowlers!!! Best of luck with the ROTC gig!!! :thumbsup:
