      Sargesbrat Welcome! Made the same vow as you. My kids did not have to change schools. 5th grade for me was in Colorado Springs long before you were born. You picked a beautiful place to plant your feet.

      Sargesbrat No, dshorty, he drives a wannabe Corvette Mercedes. Just trying to get your attention. "Only difference between men and boys is the cost of their toys." Otherwise, we all peak out in high school. The 1958 Corvette was GM's Edsel. It was all garbaged up ...  more

      Sargesbrat --Jimi-- Truly understand. You are acting out on what many of us feel. So you have been around civilians that were anti military. Most of the ones I have been around do not even know it exists. I, too, have never been military but, can not help living mil...  more
