Since Feb 18, 2005
Former Sky-diver with near 500 free fall jumps. All I needed to be an expert was a water jump. I have jumped into an Arizona sand storm and have several 7 man night stars, am a Star Crest recipient and Star Crest Solo award. I started in round canopies, graduated to a Paracommander, then had one of the first airfoil parachutes in Europe. It didn't open the first time I jumped it.
I believe in God, I’m not so much a fan of the many judgmental religious sects with persons who believe they speak for God. I believe in the Commandments and will never count on forgiveness - commandments are commandments, they are NOT suggestions.
Materials about our nation’s history are everywhere. Seek and you shall find. My favorite starter document is George Washington’s Farewell Address. It is free on the Internet.
God will Bless this nation only if we fight for it. Patriotism waged from a hammock is useless.
