We military folk seldom messed with the locals, mainly because they handed out article 15's like candy.

    OK, then I assume you are one who likes to bend the law to suit your purposes? Break the law to suit your purposes?

    Beat me to it.

    I had a jr high history teacher ask: What would the Cold War be like if we had never purchased Alaska and the Soviets had military on North American soil?

    This was in the late 1970s, so the Cold War was still on. Anyway, I thought it was an intriguing question.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    James Michener wrote a terrific book, "Alaska", that touches upon that intriguing question.
