A safe house in the South.
My wife and I share this account. Both of us serve, hence the name "ThePatriots".
@LauraKinCA @ThePatriots @Tango9 @clluelo I'm not gonna say that from this angle the guy on the left resembles a sassy version of Jack. Nope. Not gonna say it at all...and I'm sure no one else was thinking it, either!

@LauraKinCA @Tango9 @clluelo That's my new tactic, 'Mira aqui, mira aqui!!!" Then ownership! Silva fell for it last weekend. Obviously, it works.
@Tango9 @clluelo Just remember to distract them, T9. It makes all the difference in the world. :)
@LauraKinCA @ThePatriots @MaryInEvergreen @usapatriotonthemove Roger that, ma'am. It's late over here and we've not had dinner. Catch ya soon LK
@LauraKinCA @ThePatriots @MaryInEvergreen @usapatriotonthemove You know my type...we're always lurking at arm's length in the dark! Especially if you're hot. Just playing. I have to have my 'rep fix and she does, too, yet she'll never admit it. I'm so behind on emails, etc. I know I owe you a reply. I'll work on that, soon.
@LauraKinCA @MaryInEvergreen @usapatriotonthemove Why are our ears burning? Ha! Seriously, we've been visiting friends and getting re-acquainted with each other, but it is about to be back to the grindstone, heads down and all that BS very soon.
@ArcticWarrior @LauraKinCA @ThePatriots As I told my buddies when I went, I want to be #2 at everything - fly under the radar. The Smokey Bear still gives me a jolt whenever I see one. I don't know why. Perhaps it's because they practiced shouting at trees and were just getting their blades nice and sharp when I arrived. Dunno. Just know that I didn't want to stick out, whether it be weight or appearances such as mohawks and pretty shiny jewelry. In fact, I shaved my head before I went. I was practically drilled my whole life. Fuck. I still am. Piss off my wife and it's Iron Mikes for me until my grandmother gets tired!!! And let me tell you, there's not a meaner, more fit and capable human alive than a drill's grand mother. I've never met one, but I hear they're the baddest of the bad.

@ArcticWarrior Didn't you ever wonder about the shit you at chow? That's probably where they went. And how the fuck do kids show up that out of shape? That's not the time to start cutting weight.
Good God, I'd hate to buddy carry his ass.
@LauraKinCA Last night, we launched a small arsenal of fireworks. All the women and children sat on the hillside. Where was my wife? Right next to me and the boys, sleeves rolled up and grinning her ass off as she said, "I love the smell of lit fuses and gun powder!" And then she bitched at one of the guys for having a misfire in his mortar tube. Proof that I married a gorgeous female version of me.

@hjw1dr @LauraKinCA It would be negligent of me if I didn't also give a shout out to the Devil Dogs version of the same song, but a little more badass if you ask me...I mean, they're Devil Dogs and when we unleash the Dogs, all hell breaks loose.
@LauraKinCA Whenever my domestic overseer and I are lacking that certain spark and need to rekindle the romance, we crank this up and light a few candles with our AR's.
@MR151 I have one more song for you (and anyone else that hasn't heard it, check it out!)
The 4th has so many meanings for me. I flip through the pages of our history and I can't help but think of the Sons of Liberty - the original badasses of this country. Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Patrick Henry, just to name a few...and how can you not think of Paul Revere. Imagine the stones those men had!
One of my favorite songs nailed it when the words were said, "O beautiful for heroes proved in liberating strife. Who more than self their country loved and mercy more than life!"
Happy 4th to all of you!
I'll give you that. Neither of them would fight fair, but Batman has superior fire power and technology to his advantage while the geeky hipster in spandex ejaculates spider webs when he gets startled ;) On a serious note, that 6th sense would be the difference between life and death. I do see your point.

I'm straight up calling bullshit on this. No way does Spider-Man beat Batman in a fair fight. No way.
She should've been dropped on the spot, but at who's peril? This is the issue we face. We are one EO complaint away from disaster at all times. And I say this in the most humble sense as I'm married to an honest professional female that would never play certain cards yet she's witnessed others do the exact opposite. It's beyond fucked up. And yes we've encountered our share of issues over this topic.

@YankeePapa Good stuff. Thanks for sharing
@YankeePapa In case you didn't realize, my jaw has officially dropped. I heard that there was a small handful of Americans that actually became Scouts. Of them, one died during a jump or some training of that sort. Think his initials were JM. Not that names matter, they don't to me, it's the experience, lessons learned, TTP's, etc. And of course the stories of how the Scouts seemed to be drinking something that turned their skin brown and had them looking just like ZANLA.
@Recon6 @ThePatriots @StormR @Leesatee She will. I'm the mechanical one and can change the locks if she doesn't comply. Of course, that would be to my detriment, but anything for the mission, right? True story: Once, for my birthday, I asked for an impact driver. She went to a sporting goods store, stared at golf clubs ("drivers") and finally asked someone where to find an impact driver. After laughing his ass off he pointed her to the Sears across the street.
