1. I know, serious posts are few and far, but I feel I need to congratulate Gun.

    Yesterday, he finished up ten plus years in service of the military, and will be moving to Tampa shortly to start the rest of his life.

    While we may not agree with our troops being overseas, we can all agree on one thing... our troops are heros. Thanks gun, for protecting us and good luck with your new job in Tampa!

  11. Hey guys, thanks for the nice words. Thanks Wein, for mentioning it. I appreciate it.

    I just signed out of the Army about 45 minutes ago. It's very bittersweet for me. I'm excited to move on to the civilian world and start a new career, but I'm sad to hang up the uniform and leave all the great friends I've made and soldiers I've worked along side.

    I'll be moving to Tampa next week to start my new job, and to celebrate my last day in the Army, I'm flying to Atlantic City tonight to play in a few WSOP Circuit events. If any of you are up there and can get to AC, shoot me a message and I'll buy you a drink.

    Thanks again for the nice words. Much appreciated.

  14. lol, I know right where that is, Shaaarrrp. Small world! Before I deployed to Iraq, I lived in Hinesville about 1 miles from Bradwell. I bought a house in Richmond Hill about 2 years ago.

    1 more week in Richmond Hill, then off to Tampa!!!

  16. speaking as someone who has actually lived where gun is currently, i bet he will be happy to be moving to Tampa!

    I also see that you went to USMA...I almost followed my dad(1974) and your path there but decided to go civilian route instead

    Just a note: I LOVE Savannah, but Richmond Hill and Hinesville is anything but Savannah lol
