    I had a serendipitous experience today. My folks and I were driving from Laramie, WY to Cheyenne along the "old highway". About 15 miles out of Cheyenne pretty much in the middle of the prarie is a really cool bar/restaurant called The Bunkhouse. We intended to stop there so I could go inside since I had never been there.

    As we pulled in I saw a small crowd gathered around of all things a fully decked out Humvee with a Ma-Deuce on top! Long story short, it was a
    gathering of former Special Forces soldiers. The Humvee came complete with 4 10th Special Forces Group soldiers who were on hand for some type of ceremony and demonstration.

    The SF guys were very friendly ... obviously! They had M4's, M9's, the sniper rifle out for show and tell.

    The guy in the turret is with his son (about 4 years old) who was asking him how "the big gun works". :thumbup: The guy was in civvies but was super nice and was the guy who took all the pics for me and offered up the show and tell for all the cool stuff.

    Finally a pic of me and the Duke. BTW, just to the left was a table with a lot of expensive looking beverage on it. There was going to be some serous drinking going on!

    Like that 80s video game "Tank Commander" but only in real life. Jealous - looks like a blast.
