well, my friends, it is time for me to vanish for awhile. lost many of the gains i had made in my fitness gains when i got sick and during the winter. and i have got to try to make them up quick as i can and get back to combat readiness condition and also to work on my armed and unarmed combat skills and develop new skills and strategies. if the fight is coming, i need to be ready.and i will be. i do not wear a uniform of any kind these days, but my oath is, in my opinion, still valid. i expect this of myself. The Love i have for my family and the family history, my friends , The Lord God of all that is and my country and my state requires this of me as well. i may check in from time to time to see what is going on but that's about it. if it is really important, HK can always reach me.
