    Hmm. I thought I did this already (introduced myself), but now I'm not sure. So here goes again, briefly. I'm a retired USAF Chief Master Sergeant (E-9) who spent 21 years working in military intelligence as a German linguist, Bulgarian linguist, and intelligence analyst. The highlight was being stationed in Berlin for 11 of those years, including from 1987-1991, meaning I was there for the fall of the Berlin Wall. I spent my last two years in the DC area while I rushed to get a graduate degree. Now I'm retired from the Air Force. I live in Vancouver now, but work as a mental health professional for Washington County and also have a part-time contract as an aging services specialist for Multnomah County. This does not mean that I'm a services specialist who is aging, but someone who works with older people, older being defined as someone at least ten years older than I am (57), a definition that will remain constant no matter how old I actually am. I'm a pistol guy who's gone through a bunch of guns over the past year and am trying to pare it down to what I really want. FYI, I'm posting a couple for sale today when I'm done with this (in the Washington State ads section).
