@godallmighty You betcha I would! To be young and part of a team again…to be part of something important.

Life an death are simple, combat is simple, paying taxes or qualifying for a mortgage is complicated!

And then there is the feeling of power…looking behind you and seeing birds in the air and armored vehicles stretched across the horizon is pretty awe inspiring!

You put two marine divisions with a marine airwing in support, plus an the army tiger brigade all on the line, with support from naval battleships and six carrier groups, and I promise you have never seen a greater sight!

We could move mountains…remove any opponent from the battlefield. It was sheer, raw cold war power at its finest!

No one will ever see that again in my lifetime.

I was privileged to play a small part.

@GOBLIN you know I like skunks better! Ferocious little mousers and kept the barn and woodshed rodent free!

They are damned smart too.

I have picked up a few orphaned skunks in my life and even brought em in the house…when they start terrorizing the dogs and cat its time to turn em loose.:grin:
