Mr SSamir, I am new to this forum but have seen many of your posts on the other forums. I hope it is not too personal to ask - or to divert too far from the thread topic - but are you a WWII vet yourself? You are just on the fringe of being old enough for that. Even if not, I am sure you have many memories of the war itself. Again, not asking for anything too personal but just curious about any stories? Thanks.
Time to come clean gents. Dougs right, i'm not that old, I'm actually 40. It started as a joke sometime ago and I had no idea it would go this far. I got a kick out of peoples reaction, and it was wrong. Some members here like Doug, and other friends of mine like to tease me about my SS fez and its why I used the photo. If i'm ever blessed I could get to live to be 87. I also would like to apologize to Peter for hijacking his thread as well. I didn't realize and I got carried away. Hope all is good, happy holidays everyone.
