    ROE for me is simple. I engage to defend my life, my family or the life of an innocent person.

    Of course we have the common law justification as Thundar highlighted. However if I feel situation brewing I'm practicing disengagement, if possible. The best way to win a gunfight is to not be in one, again if possible.

    I never engaged myself. I once got engaged to a girl.

    How: asked her if she would marry me. Did NOT get down on one knee.

    Where: IIRC it was in her family's rec room.

    When: About 27 years before I divorced her.

    I do not feel free to leave any additional comments. Anybody that wants to marry her is going to have to find out for themselves why I divorced that bug***k crazy woman.

    stay safe.

    See, everyone knows that I am the only one allowed to call themnselves a "former Marine." Everybody else is stuck with that "Once a Marine" BS.

    But I am not the Marine you think I was. I have been to Korea, but never as a member of the military.

    Come on down to Richmond on the 17th for the OCDO dinner meet-up. We'll swap war stories.

    stay safe.

    Will try to get down someday. I commute from the Pentagon to Spotsy and don't get home until around 7:30pm so my evenings are pretty ate up. Weekends are about my only free time.
