Blaaaaaahhging..

Author: ericbarr

Seems like I have a lot to say until I actually sit down to write it out. I guess I should try to give you a little background.. Some of the stuff that makes me seem so odd.

I am a US Army Aviator, inactive reserve. I flew Oh-58a Kiowa helicopters (long since retired as a military aircraft), along with Huey UH-1H models. I had roughly 1000 flight hours when I got out. I joined the military in 1981 when I was 17. Got out about 10 years later as a Warrant Officer Pilot. Nothing fancy to tell. I did a job. I trimmed a few trees. I loved every second of it. I hated every minute of it. It changed me. Profoundly. In ways I would have never dreamed as a kid with aviator wings in my dreams. Literally from day 1.
