    I have been a member of this forum for some time but have not posted much if anything. I am an old warrior, twice combat wounded Vietnam veteran. I was an M60 machine-gunner wounded during the 1968 Tet offensive. Once from a mortar round then severely wounded from an RPG 7. I have always admired the Russian military. They are professional in all aspects. Too bad politics keeps us apart. In my city there are many Russian emigrees. Though most are now American citizens they respect President Putin. Where I get my hair cut the barber has a large, framed photo of President Putin on his wall. Sometimes the barber proudly wears his blue and white stripped T-shirt while he cuts hair. Always loved your GAZ 69. fine looking vehicle.

    You are clearly a man of understatements, "lurking for some time" and you mean 12 years Laughing Laughing Laughing

    Look forward to your comments.

    Hope you have some food stocked up.
