Re: Why do you go by that name?

I got my name a few years ago after I had been listening to White Zombie.

In one of the songs I heard the line ‘to the devil a daughter comes’

I thought that was a funky line and so I became the devils daughter big_smile tongue

Re: Why do you go by that name?

I love White Zombie. That's an awesome song, plus it gave you a sweet name.

GLOPINO is one of my many nicknames.

    PS.  The damn bubble gum company stole my name to use for their new bubble gum.

Re: Why do you go by that name?

Viking1 was my call sign in IRAQ, my ODA was the VIKING element as we were the boat team.  1 is the designation for the medic so I was Viking 1.  Could be the name of my ship like BOBA has SLAVE1 too.

Re: Why do you go by that name?

That's probably the coolest story in this thread.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: Why do you go by that name?

Yeah, you got that right.

I picked mine because I liked RC, and wanted a name recoginsable, but unused. (like boba/jango fett)

Re: Why do you go by that name?

I hope this doesn't sound sarcastic, or fake, but thanks for defending our country. With all the anti-War in Iraq feelings, you guys don't get that nearly enough.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: Why do you go by that name?

Once again, thanks for thanking me on behalf of all the uniformed out there.  We don't do it for that, but it is nice to know that despite the constant buzz of the politics and rhetoric being thrown about that you all appreciate what we do. 

The ones who really deserve then thanks are the families that pray for us and send us goodies in the mail.

By the way I am a MEDICAL SERGEANT in the ARMY.

Like I said before, the TRAVISS CLONE stories are our stories, just take out the blasters and droids and there we are.

Draco put it perfectly. People don't really appreciate what you guys do. I know plenty of soldiers believe that we should be there, but the public ignores that. Whether or not we should be there--you guys are fighting, and offering your lives. No matter what the politics are, that deserves respect.

Re: Why do you go by that name?

Wow I had never read that story Viking1 before. That really helps in my understanding. Good job and thank you for all you do. I hope you get to come home soon, since it sounds like you are in active deployed duty. My cousin got to come home in Feb. He's marines.

Great story behind your nickname.

Yes, Traviss definitely has a heart for the soldiers.

And, thanks!

Re: Why do you go by that name?

TRAVISS dedicated her SACRIFICE book to a guy a few classes ahead of me in the MEDICAL SERGEANT training course, she was my favorite author before and now will always be.

Thanks for all the support, I am in the US ARMY, and am currently an instructor teaching advanced trauma medicine to young up and comers.  I did a tour in NORHTERN IRAQ last year and was in DC after 9/11 doing security for the PENTAGON, but since assuming full time custody of my little MANDOs (or Ninjas) I have been sidelined for now as an instructor, but should return to the FORCE in the next two years.

Appreciate all the love and support you all have shown, and to NIGZY "CHECK CANOPY!!!" or "JUMPERS HIT IT!!!"
