    Eight Years

    Although it still doesn't feel like it, I was in the Army for eight years.  I didn't much like it, but it's a part of me now.  I was also in Iraq for a year and a half, in '04 and '05.  I have a few stories, but right now it's almost 3 AM.  I'll be back...

    About Me

    British armoured cavalry. One of those snooty regiments, hundreds of years old (older than the USA by 100 years). Heavy tanks (or MBT's as we called them).  Managed 9 years in total before deciding to try life as a civvy again.  Wish I'd stayed in now.
