(I jumped my dirt bike over the neighbors car, with a cinder block and pallet jump ramp, on asphalt, and lived through it... Not by much, I left a tire-mark on the roof. I was a neighborhood hero. Dad paid for the guys roof. I mowed grass and shoveled snow forever to pay for that. I wanted a cape, but never had one.)

(OK... maybe I didn't actually JUMP over the car.... maybe just drove over it, with all the neighborhood kids watching. I think I got some air. Serious, Knievel, air!)

Col. Jeff Cooper. I was an '80s kid, and brought gun mags to school (oh, the horror!) and always loved reading "Cooper's Corner". I didn't know then the full impact of reading the truth from someone that knew it, and how to tell it.

My father. He was a career Army Officer and when I was 8 years old, he took me to shoot my first gun. It was an M2 50 Cal Machine Gun (thus my avatar). He was always there for me and served his country for 30 years. He fought in three wars, was awarded 3 Bronze Stars and the Soldiers Medal, and retired as a Full Colonel.

In WWII he was a member of the 503rd PIR and made several combat jumps in the Pacific, including the liberation of Corregidor. In the Korean War he served in the Iron Triangle and Bloody Ridge. He also served in Vietnam and commanded a Battalion of self propelled howitzers on the DMZ in Korea during the Pueblo Crisis. They weren't kidding when they called his generation the "greatest generation." It may be corny by today's standards, but he was by far my hero. Then, maybe Captain Kirk.

my uncle ezra......

lied about his age to join the navy for WWII. had two ships sank beneath him on the same day. first his ship, then his rescue ship. he floated in a lifejacket for a long time, days if i remember correctly, seeing many of his shipmates killed by sharks.

plank owner on U.S.S. CORAL SEA

taught survival training and self first aid to navy pilots.

retired after 30+ years as a master chief petty officer.

he was almost a doctor in holistic medicine. he had years of study in that field from numerious sources. he helped his backwoods country folk friends, neighbors, and relatives for free. when a real doctor was either unavailable or unaffordable.

he was an athiest, but he knew the bible better than most preachers of his day.

he gave me my first gun. a H&R nine shot .22 revolver. i was eight years old. his teachings on gun safety to this day have made me a very safe gun handler.

he made me a better kid, and a better man.

My Grandma. Taught me how mix a whisky sour, play poker, and tell a good ghost story. Made me learn my state capitols and kept my grumpy old Grandpa at bay.

I miss her dearly.

When I was a 17 year old punk with long hair living in Texas, Ol' Mr Emmit lived across the dirt road from us.

I knew he didn't really like me, but he would always let me tag along while plinking or fishing or chasing his chickens, that got out. When I saw him walk into the woods, I would grab my rifle or fish-pole and run out to catch up to him.

He didn't hide the fact that he didn't like me (Hell, he once didn't even pay me for raking his yard (like, five acres!) because I did it wrong!), but he always tolerated me and we spent a lot of long afternoons together.

He out-fished and out-shot me to no end, like the dumb kid I was. He gave me better talks than I ever got from Dad. He taught me a lot about life, in a Texas kind of way.

He was a farmer's farmer. He was an old school Texan in denim overalls.

I wish I could have a good long afternoon with Mr. Emmit, today.

Bart Starr and Johnny Unitas. Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays. The 98lb weakling that got Joe Wieder's drink and kicked the beach bully's arse!
