Re: Latest November message

I guess you got the one from the 31st Regiment Association the day before. They have their ducks all in a row early it seems and everything all planned out. For a change, they actually used the mass email roster that Jerry gave them some time ago that they apparently never bothered to use before. Pa...

Re: Veteran's Day

The only people I want to hear Happy Veteran's Day from are from guys who have been there, like you Vern. It just seems so wrong at this juncture to hear it from people who were never in the service and who were in most cases not even born when the Vietnam war was going on to feel they owe us anythi...

Re: 2020 second ever Stand Alone battalion reunion

They are new at this. They haven't figured out the blind copy feature of mass emails. I'm glad that at long last they did send out an email. I hope they continue to make progress and get this second reunion off the ground.

Re: 2020 second ever Stand Alone battalion reunion

At long last an email went out today to 100 people. It reads like this: Hey everyone, just thought we would let you know what is going on with the reunion planning. Dan and I are headed to Branson the first week of December, where we will lock down events, dates and cost assessment which will allow ...

There has been no follow up email to the entire list that I am aware of offering any information. So far no post has b...

Re: Continued after moving the original Miyares string

The change in the Urban biography back to Non fiction is a factor of the bottom end digital book world. A printed book couldn't be amended as easily until a second edition. No doubt he was encouraged by the lack of interest in reviewing his biography beyond Jerry on one source and me on Barnes and N...

Maybe Texas doesn't think the federal government should start files of information on its citizens just because it can.

Looks like the Valor Guardian site link that republished the original This Ain't Hell string went down and now is back again. That's the link above this post. On the Urban biography that he had the cover changed to "a work of fiction" early on has deleted it and it is now back to a work of...

Re: The great Star license crash that is coming

Did the Texas license application ask if you if you had a passport? The passport requires as much and maybe more than the star license to get. In any case, I hate flying and don't plan to take any airplane trips that I can avoid any time in the future.

Re: The great Star license crash that is coming

Just noted another thing about it that might concern the Regiment Association. If they go back to meet with the active 4/31st at Ft. Drum again as a reunion in 2021 or afterwards, besides the reunion goers who can't fly there, the ones who don't have a star license and drive there can't come on the ...

Re: The great Star license crash that is coming

I was talking to a guy from Oregon and he insisted he had a star license and he didn't have to provide any paperwork like a birth certificate. I took a look online and read the Oregon license information. Seems they actually aren't issuing government compliant star licences until June of 2020 and at...

Old senile Joe is the Democrats leading candidate right now. He does't let the truth get in the way of a good war story.

House arrest for three and half years at Columbus Georgia under house arrest. True ...to each his own...
