i've been in the army for over 20 years now, about half on active duty and the rest in the Ohio National Guard. i've spent 2 tours in europe (Rhein-Main Germany, and Vicenza, Italy) and i've been deployed to the middle east 4 times, including Desert Storm and am currently deployed in support of Operation New Dawn, at Camp Victory in Baghdad, Iraq. my avatar is a picture of me and Buckeye great Chris Spielman taken at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait during my last deployment. i'm a life-long and die-hard Ohio State fan. Go Bucks! beat that school up north!
