    Well in that case, tell BM2 Martin I said hello. We were stationed together in Kenosha before he went to the gulf. One of my favorite drinking partners.:thumbsup:

    That guy is one of the funniest bastards I have ever met in my life. I used to give him a hard time about the whole menanite/amish thing. I have been trying to get a hold of him but everytime I call there he is out of the office or on leave or somewhere.:thumbsup:

    Yeah he has been TAD quite a bit and on leave. I give him a load of crap all the time about the same stuff. He is a trip though. We will be in the office tomorrow morning going out for a boarding sometime tomorrow though
