And here I thought you'd say because I can and get paid for it. Just watch where you land.

Did I forget to mention that a good soldier never has wet socks?

That's a myth.

I know plenty of GREAT soldiers who had wet socks until we stopped and had the time to change them.

Welcome Hicks. I've been involved in the LOSAT program off and on for about five years. I work everything but the missile and launcher. I sure thought LockMart was going to get it on the air soon. Shame.

No kidding?

Do you know Pat Coman or Amos Hooker?

We might know some of the same people at Lockheed Martin.

I have been back and forth but I only worked with the guys out in the LOSAT building. I worked with an engineer, tall slim guy who smokes a lot and drives a little mini car but I can't remember names too well. There were a lot of Sr. men in the offices that I didn't meet. There was also an older guy who was an ex pilot in the service. He was talkative but very cerebral.

We build ITAS here at McKinney also. I worked on TOW before it was moved to Tucson. I worked on Maverick, Sidewinder, and Paveway since I went to work in missiles. I'm now stuck on FLIR tank sights. It's sure a far different field from laser guidance systems and rangefinders.
