Since Dec 24, 2008

Been a ‘lurker’, a ‘member’ or an ‘unperson’ for about ten years now. Just returned [12/24/08] after a brief ‘hiatus’. I’ll add and remove things here as the spirit moves me, but for now...

I was a medic in the US Army [hence my screen name]. I spent the coldest winter of my life at a place called 'Camp Colbern' in the Republic of Korea [1975-1976] as a member of the 3/81st Field Artillery unit.

On July 09, 2008, I fled from the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts to Texas. I moved to Texas because it seems like Texas is the last place in the country where the inhabitants still have any sense.

Just as applicable today.

Pet Peeves:

1. The US education system (k-16 and beyond).
2. Massachusetts.
3. Sanctuary cities.

I can't believe that it's coming up on four years that I have been back posting on FR and haven't got sent to the etherword.

10/13/14-Now a resident of Cuba; I mean Miami FL.. What a s**thole. I won't be here too long, God willing. As soon as I am able I'm bailing.

2-6-2015-Lots has happened since I left Miami. Wound up in NC.

12 July 2017: Heading back to the great state of Texas. Can't stand the libs here in NC.

The Twelve Steps

1.We admitted that we were powerless over alcohol - that our lives had become unmanageable.
2.Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3.Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
4.Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
5.Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
6.Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
7.Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
8.Made a list of all the persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
9.Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10.Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
11.Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for the knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
12.Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
