Cactussinner - NightStalker

Long time member "cactussinner" finally decided to get vetted. He is a NightStalker (former Medic).
With a join date of 2003 and a grand total of 11 posts, I think that's a record, lol.

And so it starts...just remember...medics are of few words. So those that we use are very effective...for all you regt. guys...think about the things we did to you in the RAS because that is just normal....and now that you see a civilian provider....well, who is to say what is normal. Thanks all.

Are you referring to the 40 lb. "Motrin Lick" that looked like a giant salt block that was on the counter, or the time I came to get a cast off and they didn't have a cut off saw, so a hammer was used...

The world may not know about NightStalker medics, but they are regarded VERY highly, never doubt that.

I loved all of the medics. They always took great care of us and no matter what happened you knew you were in good hands with a TF medic around. None better!

Loved the Medics. Unsung heroes.

Hey, I pushed to get the Motrin Lick installed in the compound in order to save you guys time....take a couple of licks before each flight and you were good to go...don't have to drive all the way to the RAS or wait for medic to come up there begging for flight hours.

Haven't talked to him in years.
