    Hi all,

    AAR Galileo. Former dog handler in the French Marine Troops. Then student, teacher, scientist, ... Now living in Edmonton, Alberta and working at the University of Alberta
    I am playing a lot of computer wargame/simulations and I am beta tester for Command - Modern Air/Naval Operations so I follow the evolution of the hardware and tactics of some countries.

    And for Bombardier, I am Galileo at the AAR forum.

    First off, Bombardier, thank you.

    Dixon66 is a non de guerre based on a series of books by Harold Coyle.

    I'm not an avid poster and I have originally joined these types of forums for the purposes of researching to build models. However, I met a great bunch of folks on a site that is being disbanded and wanted to keep up the contacts.

    I have never served, but I am the proud father of a former U.S. Marine.

    Work gets in the way of most of my model building these days due to travel.

    @Dixon66

    Thank you for your confidence in our site and for joining us.
    You do not have to be an avid poster, just pop back in from time to time and let us know how you are doing

    As I am sure you are aware , you should be proud of your son, not for being a US Marine per se but for having the courage to serve his country. We here at MI.Net offer that respect to all soldiers regardless of their country of origin. After all we all serve and follow the orders of our military elite.

    I served for 12 years in the British Royal Artillery and I have a long line of military history behind me. Most recently in 2010 my Nephew Royal Marine Paul Warren was killed in an IED attack against his patrol base and sadly lost his life. He was my brothers son and we mourn him everyday.

    Thank your son for his service and pass on our respects.

    All the best mate

    For all you TAARB people making the move and trusting us with your military interests we welcome you.
    I know that some of you aside from being members of the TAARB were also long standing members of MP.Net.

    We want you to be at home here and as I have probably read some of your posts at the TAARB and MP.Net I think you will enjoy it here.

    Please get in touch with me if you are having any issues using our site, I know its a big change and the software is different but I am sure you will get to grips with it very quickly.

    Thanks for joining us and enjoy
    Respect
    Bombardier

    OK, guys I'm about to become a former mod on TAAR community. :( I military enthusiast with no history of military service. I was interested in military history and played airsoft, but that's about it. With the Russian annexation of Crimea in 2014 and "hybrid" invasion of Ukraine things changed. I became actively involved in assistance efforts to Ukrainian Military and their families. I collect various Ukrainian Military pics and post them on my Facebook page and soon on this board.

    My collection could be viewed publicly on my page: https://www.facebook.com/Berkut76
