Admiral Yamamoto infamously said "You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a man with a rifle behind every blade of grass."
And so it should be, a nation of riflemen....
Welcome home Sir! :-)
One of these days, you'll be off until the next honey-do - like me ;)Glad you're back safe & sound.
Welcome ashore, sailor! Srsly, glad you're back safely. I enjoyed your seaborne posts.
@Minstrel....yep, and that may be coming sooner rather than later!We have exactly ONE more launch on the books, and then nothing until *maybe* 4th quarter of 2014.We're leaving again on January 19th, and the launch will be at 2354 on 30 January. The company will LOSE a $5,000,000 bonus if we don't get the next one into orbit before 1 February, so it's going to be another "push it to the limit" launch campaign!
Keep it civil, please....
