Current When I was 23, I looked 17; when I was 30, I looked 23 and when I was 50, I looked 42. It is not a bad thing.

I am a veteran of the United States Army and the US Army National Guard. I spent three years on Active Duty serving in the 4th Infantry Division (Mechanized) at Ft. Carson, CO and 3rd Armor Division at Kirch Göns, West Germany. I spent 18 years in the Army National Guard with the 26th Infantry Division "Yankee" and 29th Infantry Division (Light), "The Blue and the Gray". I was deployed to Bosnia-Herzegovina with the 29th ID (L) in 2001 - 2002. I have also been reading military history articles and books for over 44 years. I do prefer Military Role Plays over all other genres, primarily because I have a vast knowledge on the subject to include personal experiences.

I have been writing for pleasure for at least 30 years, but only got into forum based Role Playing about eleven years ago. I do enjoy Nation Role Plays and get into minute detail when designing my military. The only reason I enjoy excruciating detail in my militaries is because for me, it is fun. My education and experience on this subject affords me the insight to see the depth in the structure. It is not just a general and large pile of soldiers. If someone wants assistance in designing an army, navy or air force, please send me a PM. I will help. Please specify what level (echelon) or depth you would like me to go. When I say echelon, I mean Army, Corps, Division, Brigade/Regiment, Battalion/Squadron, Company/Troop/Battery, Platoon and Squad/Section.

When I was a student in High School, I used to play Dungeons & Dragons (Edition 1). Later editions came out years after I quit that game. I do have an interest in Tolkien-esque fantasy styled Role Plays as well. Time travel has always been a fun genre for me, but to do it well, one must have a firm grasp of historical facts. I love doing this form of role play, especially since I have a solid foundation on the past.

There are only a few fan fictions I will participate in; Star Wars and Star Trek are two of them. I want to do an exclusively Klingon RP one of these days. I also avoid Canon characters.

I have real world martial arts experience. I would love to write an RP about hand to hand combat; no fantasy magic chit, just hands elbows, knees and feet. Maybe the occasional head butt thrown in to mix things up. I have been training in Krav Maga for five and a half years. I earned a first degree black belt in Krav Maga on 3 June 2017.

Krav Maga is an Israeli martial art form that employs practical self defense techniques drawing forms & techniques from Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jistu and Taekwando. It is very brutal, demanding and aggressive. In the past five years, I have bruised two ribs, sustained several muscle pulls and various lacerations and bruises over my body. I have received a sprained ankle and a fractured wrist. Before the first black belt test, I received a bone bruise to my right shin; where my round house kicks impact. Yet, I am stupid enough to continue training. Regardless of the physical pain, it is more fun than any other physical activity I have engaged in. Fortunately, the bone bruise healed up prior to the third and final test.

Send me a PM for a Role Play.

Yea, I never gamble. I know this is virtual funds, but still. Don't do it. Not completely true. I play 8-ball pool, but I'm betting on my skill with playing pool.

@Jbcool@POOHEAD189 I added a religious layer and a personal quest for Darin Torblad. Submitted for your review...

Here you go, HoF! ;)

As of today, it has been two weeks sense I moved put if my parents place.

I find roses, blue eyes, blonde hair, and Ferraris to be overrated, among a ton of other things.

It has never been about the appearance. Well, maybe if you are a teen or 20-something it is. But even then. I've dated blue eyes and blonde hair and found the personalities to be quite lacking. I've also dated dark hair and brown eyes and found personalities lacking.
We are slowly approaching November. I grow a beard every November and then shave it off the beginning of December. My wife hates facial hair and she tolerates it for one month of the year.
I Must finish this Character!!
I've spent a few years in an Infantry Platoon...Several actually. People do move around. No one stays in the same slot for very long. But, you got to start somewhere.
