    Hello all. I have just joined this MB group and did not know where else to introduce myself to you. I am an old retired Army guy who happens to now work for the military. I have been watching this MB for a few days now and like the gist of things, so decided to join.

    I travel a lot, live in NH, and like to discuss issues without a whole lot of childish name calling, etc. My politics lean towards the conservative (30 years in the Army will do that) and my other interests include boating, fishing and other outdoor sports.

    Looking forward to conversing with you all.

    Welcome - can you handle adult name calling as opposed to childish?

    Welcome CSM! Thanks for the 30 years! Ignore the gnashing of teeth, they need braces or something.

    Adult name calling is fine. I have a few of my own that I use when I feel it's appropriate. One of the reasons I joined this particular forum is because it is not all unicorns and rainbows but the trend is to back stated facts with source/reference material.

    Well, you should fit in fine here. Fairly dysfunctional family I would say, but you will find allot of us here that have served.

    Welcome again.
