LMAO. We have his records.

Not close to what he claims. He was a leg truck driver.

What's the file extension on the pics? If it's something like .png (which oddly is still not an accepted format here) or .gif, it's a simple conversion. PM if you need them exported to .jpg, which works. (but soon as I'm headed up to the farm at oh-dark-thirty tomorrow with a big cast-iron cooked load of gravy & biscuits for some hungry hunters).

Give him time, someday even Buckibill will figure it out. (I did!)

E4 after seven years....well...a self promotion to CSM must have felt really special..

So, how are we going to make the CSM special?

Send him a flat tire with a hole in the side wall. Someone with his rank and vast knowledge should be able to fix it.

Maybe hold off on the message. "CSM" Wright is supposed to return my phone call.
We've already reached out to the VA. I'd like to record the guy first.

We have a local GB that lives in manhattan going to swing by with a go pro sometime this coming week.
Reggie won't answer a call from us.
The local will reach out to papers and media also.

"CSM" Wright told the first guy that called that Bragg gave them permission to use the term 8th SFG.

The guy going for a grip and grin is going to ask for that POC.
