scorpion6 IsItFriday, I am at a point in my life where I seek to feel value in what I do everyday. Careers as a Marine and then a criminal investigator with DOJ, raising a family, paying off the mortgage, and saving for retirement are all behind me. I can't think of a better way to feel like I am making a positive difference in the world than to help our mil...See More
