BACKGROUND:  As I was coming up with something for this topic, I realized how many deep-rooted issues I REALLY have.. *sigh*... Anyway, I was born-n- raised around Pittsburgh, PA.. middle-class, grass roots prototypical Western Penn. family, enlisted in the Air Force in May 1990, went to Pope AFB in Fayetteville, NC for my first assignment (spent NINE YEARS there !!! ugh ) and have been flying C-130's in some capacity ever since.   My current assignment is the 62nd Airlift Squadron, which was the unit that actually flew Goons in WW2 as the 62nd Troop Carrier Sq.   I started slingin' drinks on the side for some extra $$$ in 1998 and it makes for a nice diversion from the day-to-day military grind.   I have a gorgeous lil' wifey, Krystal, and 2 girlie-girls, Katlyn and Caitlynn (both pronounced the same.. don't ask.. lol) Please refer to my cheesy AOL homepage for more details.

HOBBIES/INTERESTS:  Obviously online gaming, I've played Ultima Online since '98; Fantasy Sports Leagues; Sports card and memoribilia collecting; anything at all dealing with Pittsburgh-area pro/college athletics; softball; hitting live concerts and movies; and rollerblading

(Inflight conversation between a "day 1" student and myself)

Stud: Sergeant Harmon, what happens if a fighter rolls in on us?


Me : You immediately start being directive over interphone to the

Pilot..use "Break Right/Left", or "Roll Out" and inform what and where the

threat is..


Stud: What about if it's shooting at us?


Me : Bro, if it's that close, you might as well open the F%^#!@ paratroop

door, whip out your sidearm and start shootin' back


Stud: We're allowed to do that?


Me : *groan*
