    ev
    ryone has regrets...like right afterwards...minor incidents that then get forgotten.

    but ones you look back on over and over...or a long time gone?

    a maximum of 2 in 40 plus years isn't bad if you ask me....

    the big thing I can say (being in the forces) is that none of my decisions led to anyone dying under my command...an injury, yes (not life changing) so I can live with that.

    how do you think people who are in "full command" ie CO's feel.

    I know for a fact my CO in AFG from 2006 feels personally responsible for the deaths and life changing injuries of people under his command...not through his actions but because he wasn't given the "assets" he asked for etc.

    he feels he didn't press enough...but then again your moving up another level on that...really out of my scope but I get what he means

    Yeah, I'm really looking forward to that one, huge fan of Joey Dunlop, the DVD would suit me best.

    Rest in Peace Joey.

    There isn't any good reason but I want it:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	iwant.jpg 
Views:	12 
Size:	54.7 KB 
ID:	222782

    $10,000. Extremely impractical, overkill even for camp...but just because.

    Description:

    Only 12,400 miles - Completely reconditioned/overhauled (and repainted) top to bottom & mechanical by the military in 2010 shown by the stamps.

    The government has stopped selling these truck to the public, no longer can these vehicles be purchased through a government auction which means that these vehicles will significantly increase in value in the very near future, especially those in excellent condition.

    This truck is in EXCELLENT CONDITION & the off road capabilities are endless.

    Exterior:
    The Super Single Military Tires are in great condition and all look to be at 95%. Same with the spare tire. This truck has no visible rust inside or out. The 14 foot truck bed, troop & cargo carrier is in impeccable condition. The fiberglass troop bench is all intact and works perfectly fine. The cargo cover has no tears at all. Headlights, blinkers, running lights and brake lights work great.

    Cabin Interior:
    Soft top is in great condition, no tears or leaks. All gauges, lights and controls on instrument panel work perfectly fine. Seats do not show any indication of excessive wear and have no rips or tears.
    No discoloration on dash or cab floor.

    Mechanical:
    8.3 Liter Cummins Engine looks as if it was brand new, no leaks & no mechanical problems at all. Allison automatic transmission shifts beautifully. All systems work perfectly fine including the CTIS (Central Tire Inflation System) which allows you to set the air pressure in the tires depending on the terrain you are on from inside the cabin.
