I thought it’s about time I introduced myself, so in a very small nutshell………
I was born in Israel, raised in the States. I went back and raised a family and horses (my ex might argue with that order) on the Syrian border, and served in the IDF first as a gunner in a Merkava, then as a Tank Commander. As “luck” would have it, I enlisted just in time to serve almost all of my active duty in what we call the First Lebanon War, then reserve duty up to and including the present, with another round in Lebanon in 2006, and various other “moments” in Gaza as well as lots of ongoing activity in Judea and Samaria (AKA the West Bank).
I worked in wildlife conservation for 20+ years throughout southern Afrika, India, Israel, and America.
Now I go back and forth, living in a very rural setting in the States, chosen in part because I want nothing to do with the urban scene when TSHTF, and twice a year back to Israel, for reserves and to see three of my four grown kids who still reside there, and the eleven grandkids that are attached to them
I continually take courses throughout the year, with “Tac Med” the thing I’m most interested in currently.
I’m mostly here to read and learn, and I’ve been impressed with the skills, experiences, and nature of conversation that is to be found here.
Thanks for having me.
