    This is my 8,000th post. Likely 99.99% of the previous 7,999 post were of limited use, but I thought pointing this milestone was appropriate. HAHAHA...

    Pathetic, eh? I'm approaching the point where I've been out of uniform as long as I was an officer.... I'm sure things have really changed in the 10 years I've been away from CGA.

    Soon I'll be one of those guys who just doesn't get how little I know about the present (I might already be there, haha).

    Congratulations, LITS, well done!

    Don't get complacent, though....you have a ways to go before catching Pima, and you also gotta watch your six and keep an eye on Kinnem!

    Hope you post another 8000 soon!

    Well done, LITS. I have also enjoyed your avatar selections over the years. Might we hope for a "throwback day," and I could see my favorite, the orange slash?

    Of course, I think you are only a bantam weight compared to some of our august posters.

    I think I know the one you're talking about. Luigi used it for awhile too (it's the CGA Bears logo from a few years ago). That should be pretty easy to bring back.

    I'm very far behind Pima and considering when I started posting (from the stateroom of my cutter when we had internet connection), they'll catch me in no time.

    Congrats LITS! Been a pleasure reading your posts over the years. Learned a ton about the USCG and USCGA from your posts.

    Haha, that's front loaded.

    I've also been banned 2-3 times.

    I found this forum because my second child is a senior in hs and a USNA candidate. My next 2 kids are also interested in military/SA (they are Sea Cadets, but still in 8th and 6th grade). Fifth kid is undecided - but he's only 10 yrs, so it's just a matter of time, haha. Just occurred to me that if these next 3 kids of mine decide to pursue SA/ROTC, I just might beat your number in a few years! :cool:
