I was on another site the other day and saw that there was a gentleman who retired as a CSM. I also saw that he was at Ft Campbell when I was there and he was also a Black Hat. I contacted him, and over the last couple of days,I have learned a lot of interesting things.
I have invited him over to this site but I don't know if he will come or not. I will say he is one hell of a writer and had a career to be envied. He is one year older than me but a hundred times smarter. His health is not very good right now,which is sad. These are the units he served in on jump status.
