    Gasman,

    I was 101st back in the day (1969/70). I was assigned to the 2nd/501st, but at that time it was the 101st Airborne Division (Airmobile). Did rappel from a Huey a few times but never jumped.

    Getting off topic but, when I was in the 101st it was airmobile also. I ran generators for a Missle system. Most the time they would land the Huey and roll off the equipment, then set up, but a couple times we and the equipment would go out the door in flight.

    Oh, the days of being a healthy young man. I'm afraid I'd break a leg or worse if I tried it now. Lots of memories. Good and bad, but still nice to remember those days. As the saying goes, "Young, dumb and full of ........ I remember the patch we wore was called The Gaggin Dragon. A dragon with a spear coming out its mouth. Think I still got one put away somewhere.

    Even better advise, " don't impede on a 850# Harley with me aboard, then I don't care what your driving, my 10 takes care of it"

    Sorry man. No Ranger here. Was with 82nd long enough to get all the good trainning and to jump a half dozzen times. Then they pushed me off on the 101st. By then the 101st didnt jump from planes. My time was 82 thru 85. Guess im not as old as you guys. Never seen any action. Spent all my time in Ft. Bragg. And never left till i got out.

    Guess i just knocked myself back down a few levels of the TC cool list. Its an up and down trip for me. Ha.

    I try not to think too much on the Army days. So now i will just go quite on it.

    Young and dumb, too much drugs and alcohol.

    Alcohol = normal behavior
    Drugs = abnormal behavior

    At least to me anyway.

    Clearly these conversations are common. Many friends when hearing about my jump into straight shaving want total play by plays. But non seem to have the gumption to get in. Suddenly I feel like a cult recruiter who is all like "Here's a shave cream, would you like to hear about the joy and enlightened that comes from straight razors?"

    I mentioned to a guy at work that I shave using a SR and all he seemed interested in after that was whether or not I'd shaved my wife's legs with it.

    Kinda weird.
