My question is "HOW did the Army convince Tyrone to wear shoes"??? I knew some pipeliners from Beaumont that were pretty good guys. The ROCS has a varied bunch of characters and we are all the better for it.
Some people sit on $.05 of knowledge like it is the treasure of Egypt. I will teach anyone $.10 worth just to prove a point...

Welcome to ROCS John. Glad you joined us here. I hope my help on the SA forum helped a little.

I started chuckling at your responses about "Where in Tx is that?" I was stationed at Ft. Hood for a few years,, and understand completely. So,, here's my reply,,, to Texans,, when they ask me "Where in Texas is Lake Lure?"

"Well,, you see I'm from Western North Carolina. And you must know,, that God created the world in 6 days,, and on the 7th, he rested. He chose to sit down in the mountains of Western North Carolina,, because it was the best place to relax!"

And another favorite of mine,, only used when a Texan gets truly offensive.
"Do you know what the definition of a midget is? It's a Texan with the s*** kicked out of him!"

NO offense to the MANY fine Texans I know AND respect!

As noted,, you'll fit right in here.
you kidding? i need all the help i can get!

:D :D :D

Lots of chuckles here for sure.

And as for the Freemans,, lots of them still around here. I know several,, so I won't hold anything against your wife! (Heck,,, one Freeman rents space on my property for a sign.) :D

Seriously,, we do like to poke a little fun at each other,, but we are serious about our Rugers.
