    I don't know. I saw there was not much participation in here and I figured I'd start a thread and then I changed my mind and deleted it.

    Thanks but I just thought better of it. I don't think that there's any bigger influence in my life than my military experience. Now that I am a civilian it is probably better if I try to focus more on other things. Or at least be in the right forum for the topic. I get really bent out of shape still over military topics and particularly non-vets in the media making experts of themselves.

    BTW one of my buddies flies Kiowas.

    I thought all Special Forces were Airborne.

    Airborne school isn't what it used to be acccording to a few graduates I've met lately.

    Really how so? Are they making 4 jumps now instead of the required 5?
    And I'm not sure if you know this (probably not) but they opened the towers back up which they had not for probably 15 years. So maybe it isn't what it used to be because now during Tower Week you are going to be dropped off of one instead of just looking at the 200ft steel structure like in the past.
