welcome mac

i'd like to introduce you to the one and only Macbeau. he is a certified crazy, in that he spent 12 years in the army jumping out of really nice airplanes for a living. and as a participant in one of the great oxymorons of all time (military intellegence) he brings a different, and in my opinion, informed analysis to the world of blogging. so say howdy to mac.
now that i think on it, maybe he isn't so damned smart after all. let's see.
  1. he jumped out of airplanes, day and/or night

  2. he was a green beenie, instead of something a little safer, like a submariner

  3. he participates in civil war reinactments (based on his blog profile photo), but chose to be on the losing side

i guess i could go on for a while, critiquing his blog entries, but since they make sense, maybe i'll cut him some slack

Welcome aboard Mac

O.K., First of all, they're not really nice planes if the Air Force has been maintaining them. Parachuting is about delaying the effects of gravity. The nice thing about gravity is that it works both day and night, in any weather, at any speed and never needs to be fixed..., Unlike just about anything in the Navy inventory.
Second, Submarines are safe? Isn't there a little something called Anti-Submarine Warfare and a whole industry based on that one concept? I have never heard of "Anti-Special Operations Warfare". When people heard we were on the way, It was usually too late for the bad guys.
Finally, I am not a reenactor. I shoot N-SSA (North - South Skirmish Association) matches. We shoot real bullets at breakable targets in team and individual events. Reenactors cringe at the thought of "live fire". I chose to be on a CSA team because chicks dig it (and I live in the South). Besides, I already spent 12 years in the modern "yankee" Army.

Now that all that has been straightened out, I can continue doing whatever it is that I do best.

"and chicks dig it". ok, now that we've parsed this down to the important statement, i get it. sounds like fun, be be honest. but i already spend way too much of my disposable, and some of my non-disposable income making holes in targets as it is. my wife is a pretty patient woman, but even so, i still get the raised eyebrow and the "oh, you bought another gun" look every time she sees me come home from the gun shop or gun show. i think she is too practical, and disagree with her evaluation that money could be better spent with a kid in college. ha! what the hell do i work for if not to have some fun myself?
