Born and raised in Texas. Joined the Marine Corps right after high school. Stayed in the Corps for 20 years (1965-1985). Went into security work after that. Mostly overseas. That's where I met my wife. My folks are dead and gone. Her's are overseas. That makes things good. I am retired. I draw two pensions, both government. Life is good. Moved back to Texas a few years back and live in the hill country. I still do consulting work and travel 3-6 months a year. Just got back from the middle east. Will be spending some time in a Spanish speaking country in a few months. Someone needs some assistance with security. I speak Mandarin, Russian, French, Spanish and Arabic. Like I said, I have two government pensions, if you get my drift. Hope you like to argue, because I do. Hope you have the power of your convictions, because I do. Can I piss you off? Sure can. Do I care? Not really. Stand your ground or walk away. It's that simple. "Gunny"
