AmericanVIKING just gained another NEWBY or FNG to add to a long list.
I never know where to start telling my story...but once I get started then it is quite the reverse. I geyt carried away then need to stop the fingers falling on keys or my battery running low...

I grew up on a Ranch/Farm (Simply put, we grew crops and raised animals on the same property) in the mountains of Montana.
I raised and trained Buckskin Roping Horses on top of and including daily chores sucj as miking tow cows twice a day, by hand I might add, Haying, Fencing, herding & Doctoring Cattle, Horses, Hogs, Lama (only the last year), Logging, Building new outbuildings to show a few all while working at the local TEXACO. I didn't know any different as all us kids, in our part of the country, had that same schedule. We didn't have time for TV but did all get together one day a month and go climb Glacier or hike in Glacier National Park. FISHING was always a past time and then smoked fresh Salmon or Lake Trout...YUMMMM YUM.

After I graduated HS I enrolled in the Local Community College until Uncle Sam called my lottery number. Yep, I graduated the year they abolished the College Deferment...Not me so I joined the NAVY, signed up to be a Quartermaster but STILL ended up carrying a LRR and ditched the uniform. Yeah, They had me ditch the uniform and grow my hair back out. Not going to go any deeper into that aspect...99% can't and won't see everything our Nation needs...to the 1%, Howdy.

Today, I'm retired DUE TO A second shoulder surgery to repair the first surgeons total FUBARRED attempt. SO, found a new Surgeon thru Workers Comp to repair that mess. I'm now right back in that pain in the ass sling for the second time in 8 months. Gonna be a while in recovery and need to take it easy....I hate incompetent people of any nature. Yeah that is a strong sentiment but IS my reality and truth so just accept and get over yourself or just get out of my way...tounge-in-cheek here people.

SO where do I stand in politics? EASY, for the right candidate so that changes as the atmosphere changes in Washington. When You've been around as long as I have you get to see the parties MORPH and changing ideologies and philosophies. The parties are NOW the exact opposite of what they were back in the 60's and 70's
The Dems had Kennedy and we were starting to straighten things out but the THEY took him out. That is a new topic for a future discussion.

Today we have TRUMP and I support him all the way to straighten things out ultimately making USA great again.
I witness the attacks and it just disgusts me the disrespect. NONE of us threw any temper tantrum or made up slanderous rumors when OBUMAR was OUR PRESIDENT. YET it seems they are afraid of TRUMP because of what he is accomplishing...NO I DON'T BUY INTO ANYTHING THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS SELLING.

What do I see a possibility after a debacle in November?
One of a few things includes the Dems looasing AGAIN and then throwing another Clinton style temper tantrum and maybe even attempting a COOP. They already have a plan for that and if you don't see that then wake up. That COOP ain't gonna go down well for them...TOO MANY loyal to the constitution and A LOT of folks that took an oath to defend, protect from all enemies, foreign or domestic.
See, Once anyone has taken that OATH that is never dismissed or canceled....EVER. You can form your own opinion from that of where I'll be.

So I may have strayed from the normal format introducing myself to Ya-All but then I totally am DIFERNT.

I'll see ya-all around in the forums here and please know and understand one thing. I respect you all and only ask you return that. I understand not all of us agree on everything so talking things out is preferable to bashing and slamming each other.

Ya-All Have a GREAT DAY now, Ya-Hear?

JUST SAYIN'

Mike,
No sir, never had one. I want to make this perfectly clear here. I was never part of that awesome and elite group. My service was never anything like those selfless, brave and daring men.

I was not one of them and was given vastly different assignments that are or never will be in any history book. Not known by many, maybe less than 1% and even less accepted or understood by even less than that.
This is the first and only time I ever made any mention and now regret that I did. I wish I could delete it all but not an option at this point. I guess I didn't come out in any way that is easily expressed. I regret even mentioning it here.
I most certainly should have kept my big fat mouth shut more today than probably any other time to date.

I apologize to have given any impression and was most certainly not my intention. Let me say this straight out here. I was never part of those that deserved that Trident much more than me.
I had only one partner throughout our career and when he passed I resigned.
I was never a part of that elite group and they are much more deserving than anything we did.

WOW, this is a mess I didn't expect nor saw coming. I can't say this any more straight than to tell you that I was never part of them and had no intention to even suggest, infer or in any way, in any manner that I was. For any mistaken inferance I am most sincerely sorry about.

My head is as low as it can be today. Those men are the elite of the elite and I was never even close to their caliber.
To them please accept my most humble and sincere apologies. I never even considered my words could be so misunderstood or could have been written to be construed so incorrectly.

Embarrassment doesn't even come close to my embarrassment today. Can't even form a good sentence now.

Read your post again and can't detect a word giving the impression you weren't just what you said. "A quartermaster in the Navy. " Or as we would say "A skivvie waver." Granted you reference an additional duty but not construed as being a Seal.

I grew up on a Ranch/Farm (Simply put, we grew crops and raised animals on the same property) in the mountains of Montana.
I raised and trained Buckskin Roping Horses on top of and including daily chores sucj as miking tow cows twice a day, by hand I might add, Haying, Fencing, herding & Doctoring Cattle, Horses, Hogs, Lama (only the last year), Logging, Building new outbuildings to show a few all while working at the local TEXACO. I didn't know any different as all us kids, in our part of the country, had that same schedule. We didn't have time for TV but did all get together one day a month and go climb Glacier or hike in Glacier National Park. FISHING was always a past time and then smoked fresh Salmon or Lake Trout...YUMMMM YUM.

After I graduated HS I enrolled in the Local Community College until Uncle Sam called my lottery number. Yep, I graduated the year they abolished the College Deferment...Not me so I joined the NAVY, signed up to be a Quartermaster but STILL ended up carrying a LRR and ditched the uniform. Yeah, They had me ditch the uniform and grow my hair back out. Not going to go any deeper into that aspect...99% can't and won't see everything our Nation needs...to the 1%, Howdy.

Today, I'm retired DUE TO A second shoulder surgery to repair the first surgeons total FUBARRED attempt. SO, found a new Surgeon thru Workers Comp to repair that mess. I'm now right back in that pain in the ass sling for the second time in 8 months. Gonna be a while in recovery and need to take it easy....I hate incompetent people of any nature. Yeah that is a strong sentiment but IS my reality and truth so just accept and get over yourself or just get out of my way...tounge-in-cheek here people.

SO where do I stand in politics? EASY, for the right candidate so that changes as the atmosphere changes in Washington. When You've been around as long as I have you get to see the parties MORPH and changing ideologies and philosophies. The parties are NOW the exact opposite of what they were back in the 60's and 70's
The Dems had Kennedy and we were starting to straighten things out but the THEY took him out. That is a new topic for a future discussion.

Today we have TRUMP and I support him all the way to straighten things out ultimately making USA great again.
I witness the attacks and it just disgusts me the disrespect. NONE of us threw any temper tantrum or made up slanderous rumors when OBUMAR was OUR PRESIDENT. YET it seems they are afraid of TRUMP because of what he is accomplishing...NO I DON'T BUY INTO ANYTHING THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS SELLING.

What do I see a possibility after a debacle in November?
One of a few things includes the Dems looasing AGAIN and then throwing another Clinton style temper tantrum and maybe even attempting a COOP. They already have a plan for that and if you don't see that then wake up. That COOP ain't gonna go down well for them...TOO MANY loyal to the constitution and A LOT of folks that took an oath to defend, protect from all enemies, foreign or domestic.
See, Once anyone has taken that OATH that is never dismissed or canceled....EVER. You can form your own opinion from that of where I'll be.

So I may have strayed from the normal format introducing myself to Ya-All but then I totally am DIFERNT.

I'll see ya-all around in the forums here and please know and understand one thing. I respect you all and only ask you return that. I understand not all of us agree on everything so talking things out is preferable to bashing and slamming each other.

Ya-All Have a GREAT DAY now, Ya-Hear?

JUST SAYIN'

PS...To our monitors I sincerly say, Ifin this post doesn't conform then by all means please delete and allow me a second chance. Thank-You and respect.

Welcome to the forum! We can always use more country boys! I have one small question though. Having also grown up on a ranch, I’m confused on your statement on raising, “Buckskin roping horses!” That’s not a breed of horses, Buckskin is no more than a color of hair, like a bay, sorrel, dun, Black, brown (different from the bay) ! A roping horse is usually a Quarter horse or a Thoroughbred or a combination of the two. We’ve had all three in our family through the years. A roping horse denotes what a horse has been trained to do! Heck, it could even be a Shetland pony if you wanted to rope real slow jackrabbits! LOL!

I’d love to know about the lineage of your “Buckskin Roping horses.” 👍

Mike,
No sir, never had one. I want to make this perfectly clear here. I was never part of that awesome and elite group. My service was never anything like those selfless, brave and daring men.

I was not one of them and was given vastly different assignments that are or never will be in any history book. Not known by many, maybe less than 1% and even less accepted or understood by even less than that.
This is the first and only time I ever made any mention and now regret that I did. I wish I could delete it all but not an option at this point. I guess I didn't come out in any way that is easily expressed. I regret even mentioning it here.
I most certainly should have kept my big fat mouth shut more today than probably any other time to date.

I apologize to have given any impression and was most certainly not my intention. Let me say this straight out here. I was never part of those that deserved that Trident much more than me.
I had only one partner throughout our career and when he passed I resigned.
I was never a part of that elite group and they are much more deserving than anything we did.

WOW, this is a mess I didn't expect nor saw coming. I can't say this any more straight than to tell you that I was never part of them and had no intention to even suggest, infer or in any way, in any manner that I was. For any mistaken inferance I am most sincerely sorry about.

My head is as low as it can be today. Those men are the elite of the elite and I was never even close to their caliber.
To them please accept my most humble and sincere apologies. I never even considered my words could be so misunderstood or could have been written to be construed so incorrectly.

Embarrassment doesn't even come close to my embarrassment today. Can't even form a good sentence now.
