.....Hey, Aimtrue:............Not too often due I run across someone who was born in 1932. I just passed that "big 80" last week............kinda makes you wonder, "where the hell did the time go"?

I grew up about 18 miles from the "Glenview Naval Air Station" in northern Illinois, and about the same distance from "Great Lakes Naval Station". Help pave all those "GRINDERS" at Great Lakes............

Stay safe and "aim-true"........................Griz

@MontanaGrizzly

Greetings Griz.

My wife went through Great lakes NTC. I went thought NTC San Diego. We both are quite familiar with those grinders.

I was born at the end of 1931 and NEVER thought that I would live to be this old. Damn, shows how ignorant youth is.

I have had a healthy life until this past January. Then, a heart block and next a pacemaker.

My weight-lifting days are over and unfortunately, so are my shooting days. Cannot chance the recoil from even a smooth shooter.

I gifted my collection of rifles, pistols and revolvers to friends and servicemen. I enjoyed my time having firearms.

Now, I hope you and me both have our remaining years full of health, interest and great food.

Best of luck.
