I'm going to be out of town for a couple of weeks and will likely not have the time to update the site, so if I'm not around much, don't worry, I'll be back in June will some more stuff for you guys!
Oh what great, terrible sound!
Loud enough to quake the ground,Ears ringing all around.
Quickly sight fades to white,the taste of metal, but that's not right.
I feel as though my chest is tight,am I to die on this night?
No pain I feel, my life not lost.I'll help my brothers, at all cost.
For they I swore to battle on, to always fight.And do what's right.
The enemy tried his very best,to bury me with all the rest.
But I'm a soldier, through and through, I.E.D's just will not do!

This comes from Team Sergeant over at the Professional Soldiers forum:
Colonel Kenneth Crocheron of Draper, Utah, you are this week's biggest poser. And you are a liar, fraud and a real bottom feeding scumbag.
I spent a few years as co-founder and lead investigator for a paranormal group in northern Indiana. We weren’t a large group, but we had a few dedicated regular members who allowed us to keep it going for a number of years. We went to a bunch of places in Indiana, Ohio, and even Illinois throughout the time we were active, but the most interesting and probably most well-known place we went was located in Kentucky. That place was the old Waverly Hills Sanitarium in Louisville; one of the most famous haunted places in the country. It was technically our first ever investigation as a group and was a pretty big thing to try and tackle, but we did it more for the experience than the evidence gathering. And most of us just wanted to start off big with a location that everyone had heard of. Waverly has special events every weekend in which groups of 40 can come and walk around all night. We signed up and headed down for a Saturday investigation.
When pulling up to the building for the first time, the sheer size of it really gets to you. You have to drive up this twisty, turning road next to a golf course and by the time we arrived, it was already dark. Once you make that final turn, Waverly just hits you with its enormousness. I remember thinking “Wow, this is going to be intense!” And that was an understatement. The owners and groundskeepers of the place started off by giving us a quick rundown of the rules and how the night would work. The 40 people would each split in to two groups of 20 and would spend half the night on either the 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors followed by the basement and 1st floor and then we’d all switch in the middle of the 8 hours. The moon was out in full, so we at least had the moonlight coming through the windows; and flashlights, of course to light our way. I was also carrying my personal digital recorder and had it running from the moment they released us to when we finally packed up to leave in the morning.
Just wanted to say thanks to the over 7,500 unique visitors to the site since the November launch. It means a lot to know that so many people have read my work on here and follow it. Thanks everyone, and keep an eye out for something new coming up soon.
I've been in the early stages of a new writing idea I came up with and just wanted to let my readers know that I've started on it and to keep an eye out for it. I think it'll appeal to those who enjoy my military stuff, and those who enjoy my paranormal stuff on here as well. And will hopefully attract a lot of new readers too. It's a dual project and should turn out pretty awesome once I start releasing them. I'm thinking of doing it in "Acts" but want to get at least a few done before I release the first, that way there isn't a long wait in between the first few.
Anyway, I'll give more info the closer I am to getting them done.
I'm working on a new project, and realize that my knowledge in regards to current (the past two or so years) operations in Afghanistan is limited. I am wondering if any of my current readers can help me out.
What would a current Light Infantry unit on the Paki/Afghan border be using for vehicles nowadays? MRAPS? M-ATVS? Some version of HMMWVS?
If you know, either leave a comment on this thread, or shoot me an email at email@example.com. It would be much appreciated!
