The intro that was lost for 2 years

I have finally found the time [and password] on the tail end of my 3rd deployment to revive the account from two years ago, that I created for some reason long since forgotten, and never got around to introduce myself or post at all. How time gets away from us.

As I have already alluded to, I am Active Duty military, and currently on my 3rd tour of duty. I have been in the Army for 8 years as an Infantryman. In my time I have been fortunate to serve as an Airborne Ranger and in Long range reconnaissance.

I hold a B.S. in Criminal Justice and Corrections, though, I have never put it in to practice as I have been Active duty since college.

I own a small (27 machines is relatively small), sew shop and specialize in nylon goods, prototyping, and small production runs when I have the time to devote to it. I am somewhat of a sew snob as a result. I am working on my riggers tickets so I can expand the capabilities of my shop. I am also an avid skydiver and surf when the bug hits or a swell comes in.

As my name suggests, I grew up in Hawaii, but, I also have an unnatural affinity for all things "Aloha Flare."

Other hobbies are in Gardening, Aquaponics, metallurgy/machining, general construction, and firearms.

I do not consider myself extremely gifted in regards to energies or meditation. My practice and application are haphazard at best. Though when it counts, things seem to happen.

I have learned much in my years lurking, and now hope to share my knowledge and provide insight where I can.

That's great and rather parallel to what I just did with my crusty old account, how odd!
