Re: GO ARMY!

Currently, I live near both Pax's River Air Station (Navy) and Andrew's AFB. Recently, I was standing on the pier at Solomon's Island (near Pax), and three Stealth Bombers came cruising by in formation. They looked like space alien aircraft, bad ass big time. There was an older lady near by (late 70...

Re: GO ARMY!

I'll never forget the day I saw my first F-17/18. As previously stated, Pope was a MAC Base, no strategic aircraft was stationed there. One day I was having my car worked on at a gas station just outside the back gate at Pope, next to the flight line. While standing outside the gas station, across t...

Re: GO ARMY!

I was stationed at Pope from 76 - 78, Military Airlift Command (MAC) Base. At the time, I was single and lived in the barracks, heard those C-130s/C5s coming and going 24/7.

The best thing our 8-4 Sun Belt team can do is make sure the MAC goes 0-1 in Mobile in 2017.

#BeatToledo
Or, going 4-0 against MAC teams since our move to FBS. :D

Re: GO ARMY!

Did four years in the Air Force, attended App, then had career with the Coast Guard, Ol' Salt Chief. :) My father-in-law is a retired Col. (O-6) in the Army, did two tours in Vietnam. I look for a good game either way. At the end of the day, I'm going for Army.

I can only hope losing the game will change the basketball team just as losing to Liberty did for our football team back in 2014.
Many thought the same thing after the JMU loss a couple weeks back, however...............

Re: Appalachian English explained

I was speaking to some of my Northern Relatives (wife's side, Ohio roots) this past weekend on the Appalachian dialect. I indicated that our dialect is one of (if not the most) purest forms of original Elizabethan language still in existence. It was just too much for my brother-in-law to handle in a...

Re: Yellow helmets

I was not aware that The Office of Trademarks & Licensing determined our school colors. I remember years past (since the early 60s when I was in grade school), going to App games and we were wearing old gold and not PMS 116.

I'm fine with the yeller cause it's a school color. The combo yesterday was still awful.
Technically yeller is not our school color, it's old gold.
