Occupation Chaplain
Location California, United States
Introduction Probably the last person on the face of the earth who'd ever have been voted even remotely "likely to join the Army in his 50s with no prior service." **************************************** (The opinions presented herein are strictly those of the one who gave them; I may well not agree with sentiments posted by people commenting about what I've written. My opinions belong to me, and you can't have them -- so don't ask! THEY IN NO WAY REFLECT THE OPINIONS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE, THE ARMY, OR ANY OTHER INSTITUTION OR PERSON. However, since they are mine, they are therefore correct! Evidently some people were confused/annoyed by my use of the Chaplain Crest on this page, as if that meant somehow that I were pretending this to be an Official Army Site, despite the disclaimer to the contrary. To make sure that no one is confused anymore, though I've no doubt they'll still be annoyed, that Crest has been removed. I'm wondering whether it confuses those people for me to identify myself as an Army Chaplain at all now.... I know it's confusing me! I had no idea people were so easily confused. Take what you need and leave the rest, without confusion.)
