You are psycho for 80 years old. Nuts. Crazy.

George H. W. Bush way to lead every senior citizen. I can only hope to want to jump from a plane at 80.

BTW, outstanding eulogy of President Reagan. I had a large lump in my throat when you choked up.

I Love Bush Sr.

I love Mrs. Bush as well. She is a shining example of an intelligent and graceful First Lady.

Yeah. I'd miss Bush Sr. But I am glad I have him now. I always liked the way Pres. Bush addressed the nation. He was all business, yet extremely prepared and very believable as my neighbor two doors down. I liked him very much.

I didn't know we were allowed to discuss any jump that -745 didn't participate in. :D

Who is on this board from 745?

What would those SCUBA guys know about serious jumping, anyway?

Sir, I seem to have my head in my 4th POC. I thought 745 was a MFF ODA.

(This is what I get for trying to be funny.....)

Take care, all.

Sir,
I never knew ODA numbering, didn't have to as the call signs changed every 24 hours. So, whose ODA is in what and blah, blah, blah....

When is their next contact time? To whom am I sending this burst traffic?

Solamente.

Take care.

Detachment identification:
A-Teams are numbered as ODA-### (Example: ODA-015). This stands for - Operational Detachment Alpha, with the first number represent the group, the second and third representing battalion and team designation. ODAs ending in "4" designate a HALO group and ending in a "5" designate a Combat Diver/SCUBA team.

Nine years in... I could tell you BN and CO, that was it. Let the staff sort it out. I had commo to make.

I cut my teeth on 20 group callups. BTB with a DMDG? You always made commo. It sucked, but it worked. As bad as it sucked for me, there was always some team guy huddled under a poncho doing it on the opposite end.... I still have a few tri-graphs.

Then voice and KL-43's (crap, crap, and crap)....

Then I was given a POS SOCA package and told to do great things with it. And the B Team always had commo.

I've used the newer stuff too, or seen it demonstrated, and I'm jealous.

Almost makes me want to go back in.....
