pampa168 is on the path to success [1-99] pampa168 is on the path to success [1-99]
Im Pampa168, as my nickname indicates I was born in Argentina, passed 5 years in a Argentinean Navy boarding school, and a year in the Navy School marines group. (In Argentina Marine and Navy officers goes to the same school), that was between 1981 and 1986 that means that most of my instructors and superior officers were veterans of the Falklands war. But in the end of the 80s the political situation has become really different, and I decided to quit my military career. I lived until 2004 in Argentina when I emigrate to Canada.
Anyway I suppose that military history and computer historical games are in my blood. I'm also a big fan of military science fiction.
Love the site, there is people here that really knows this stuff, I'm honored to share the place with them.

I disagree with this image of doom. Even if the US army has abundantly used torture throughout its existence, as did all other armies of the world, the US army is not similar to the other armies, except perhaps the British one. They both are an emanation of the country and these countries are not similar to other countries in the world.
I stumbled on this site in search of a possibility of advertisement for a work that is now achieved, namely an overview of evolution from the Big Bang to September eleven. The scope od "the Achievements and the days" is of course not restricted to a history of succeeding battlefields, even if I indulged in the description of the Battle of the Golden Spurs, but this global history may interest you. The USA and Great Britain are different from other countries, which reflects in the behavior of their armies, and the USA is the sole contemporary defender of Civilization: Washington is the sole capital of the Free Man.
I may add, for the unbelievers, that Europe and the USA, after the storms of steel and fire they underwent and still themselves distribute today, have improved internally, provided the recent terrorist aggressions do no be an excuse for our rulers to implement a severe restriction of our liberties: while I worked at St Jude in Memphis, people looked down at me ("his behavior is a scandal", heard I say) because I was befriended with a negro assistent and a negro doctor (I saw no reason why not, because both were as civilized as my white colleagues) , and look how things are now!
Granted, the insatiability and greed of our elites casts a shadow on this optimism, but some effort was made in the USA to curb their gluttony and look how other countries have fared in the mean time and see the differences.

I am in the process of restoring sick bay. I have also joined an effort to create a museum for the old Naval Training Center in San Diego using the old USS Recruit! I noticed there were some in here that were curious about her status!
Anyway, glad to be aboard...so long as permission is granted that is!

Right guys?
Now - This IS a Revelation

I really Enjoyed a lot of your Posts - Les Brains -
And then you showed-up as Banned - I was rather peeved.

You even got some Mentions in the "Where Is .... ! Thread.

I am so VERY PLEASED that you have reappeared.

Sort of On Topic, or In Reply - I think it WOULD be really good if we had more Ladies on this Site.
I have over 2,500 FB Friends - and 97% of them are Ladies -
Ladies are Fun, Interesting, Mostly well-behaved and well-mannered -
some of them tell outrageous Jokes and Stories, most of them are without any malice, and lots of Ladies are cat-lovers.

I am MALE by the Way, in a permament relationship with a dear Lady, and have two darling Cats.

Sorry to have been away so long

WELCOME Slater Doc - to the ACG Forums.

WELCOME SwedishRanger - to the ACG Forums.

WELCOME Col of the 32nd - to the ACG Forums.

You should all three find it a lot of Fun here - people are sensible ( mostly ), cvilised ( usually ) and pretty well-mannered ( nearly always ).

MOST people here are not here to cause Arguments, make trouble or Insult others. Most of them have the sense and decency to not cast opinions on things they do not understand.

There IS a lot of argument in the Political Sections - which is why I stay well clear of that.

Some of us have made a lifelong Study of Military AND NAVAL matters - whilst other are still learning - still, there is always more new stuff to learn.

I have just Moved Home - some 200 Miles in one day, to end up some few miles from my Birthplace - the marvellous and Historical Town of Portsmouth, Hampshire, England ( called "Pompey" by us 'Natives' ).

Moving Home is the single most stressful, most exhausting, and almost frightening experience I have had in my life.
And now we have all the nightmare of trying to fit all of our stuff ( mostly my stuff ) into a smaller space.
Plus loads of fixing, repairing and replacing things which have been "bodged" ( very badly made ) around here.

Also - ACG is the preferred host Site to a large number of Games - Role Playing Games and others - which of course are "Play By Post" Games. Many different kinds, lots of different subjects - Military, War, Historical, "What If" and other types - these can be Fun.

Best Wishes - from Kris
