New to the unit...

I am an experienced player and played my first military strategy Board game in 1960 and first computer strategy game in 1982. I have a significant number of HPS and JT strategy games, as well as many others and have played PBEM scores of times over the years. I also was Regular Army (Arm. Cav), served with the 25th Infantry Division as an infantry platoon leader and company XO in Vietnam. I consider myself a decent military historian. I am up for any game challenge, so bring it on.

I am also an Army veteran )Infantry (101st and 1st ID) and Special Forces (10th SFG). I have about the same experience as you. I am up for a game. Name your game and side. Note, I need to be at Ft Meade until Saturday. I am at a location that allows zero outside electronics. (Thank you M. Snowden!) LTC Ken Fortune
