An average guy from the east coast of the United States.  Son of a former Marine and Vietnam Veteran.  Made several attempt to enlist into the Marine Corps with the goal of being a Marine Aviator.  Flying either the Super Hornet or the Cobra gunship.  Unfortunately a childhood injury prevented me from accomplishing my dream.Been flying flight Sims since 1984 (on an Commodore 128D).  Started flying online about 1996 with Fight Anthology and finally joining the 531 in 2001 flying Jane's F/A-18E Super Hornet.  531 is now considered home for me.

Gone but not forgotten ~S~ Thanks Haco
