    A bit about myself; Armour Crewman since 1988 having done a few tours to both Bosnia and Afghanistan. Last tour I was commanding a Leo2A6(M) in Ma'sum Ghar. Seen some stuff, did some stuff. I'm just getting back into the hobby after a 10 year hiatus. I was told about this site from the owner...
