He has probably the coolest intro to a wiki page I've ever seen (Early Life and Education portion of the page, actually):

Townsend was born in Scheinfeld in 1959 to a German art student mother and an Afghan medical student father, the result of a love affair.[1] He was adopted soon after birth by an American military family in Germany.
Kind of interesting to imagine what kind of turn his life might have taken if he had returned to Afghanistan to live with his father.

I find him very personable, but then there are no article 15's in my future.

Funny thing about article 15's, nobody truly knows what the future holds.

Somehow over the 4 years I spent on active duty, I was able to turn what should have been at least 3 article 15's into counseling statements. I watched a bunch of guys, especially at DLI, drop like flies for what I thought were lesser offenses.

Here is a redacted copy of the photo associated with the request. She appears to be a real soldier, who may be unaware that her photo has been appropriated for illegal purposes.
But I think that you can see why the [male] person in my office [NOT me] was smitten by the attention.

Hmmm. Would definitely fraternize. But hard to tell with the black bars. I might get a little dumb around a rocking bod, but I'll go full retard for the whole package with a pretty face.

Maybe in person. But $$ and things of value over the internet?
Nada.

Wonder if she can clean fish or rebuild a LT1/350? That's what turns me on at this point in my life.

Several members have PM'd me with other instances of that photograph, but associated with another last name.
Yet the nametag in the unredacted photo is not the name on the other instances. Perhaps it's a matter of maiden name vs. married name. She appears to be a handsome woman with appearance consistent with stated age of 42, and with those awards and decorations she presents as a woman who would have no difficulty attracting a gentleman of quality.

Don't know about handsome, but she probably is cross eyed so the black out is a plus.

That's a pretty good site, I haven't checked it out in awhile. Here's a scambait that I just chose at random out of the many listed, it's pretty funny. Especially when they get to the part of trying to recover some stolen money from inside a cow's vagina.

Hahaha, I just got this in the email a few minutes ago. Pretty creative story, considering the people this is coming from:

Quote:
Dear Beloved

Good day and compliments, I know this letter will definitely come to you as a surprise, but I implore you to take time to go through it carefully as the decision to go a long way in determining my future and continued existence .Please let me present myself.i am Louis Brown, fourth Battalion, 64th Armored Regiment unit that patrols here Helmand province, Afghanistan. I am desperately in need of assistance and I have summoned the courage to contact you.

I am currently in Afghanistan and came across your contact details in an electronic journal. I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of $25Million dollars (Twenty Five Million US Dollars) to you, so I can be sure it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here. This is no stolen money and there are no dangers involved.

SOURCE OF MONEY:

Some money in dollars was discovered and concealed in barrels at a place in the province of Helman, when a foot patrol was conducted and it was agreed by all party present that the money is split between us.this might seem like a thing make it illegal but I tell you? No compensation can compensate for the risks we have taken with our lives in this previous hellhole.The figure was given to me as my share and to conceal this kind of money became a problem for me, so with the help of a contact Canadian who works with the UN here (his office enjoys some immunity) I was able to get the package to a safe place totally out of focus problems. He does not know the real contents of the package as he believes belongs to an American who died in an air strike that before leaving trusted me to deliver the package to his close relative.

Now I have found a surefire way to get the package out of Afghanistan for you to collect. I do not know how long I'll be here, and I've been lucky to survive two suicide attacks with explosives perpetrated by Pure Divine intervention. This and other reasons put into consideration have led me to ask for help. If I might be of interest and then Endeavor to contact me immediately and we would work out the necessary paperwork, but I pray that you are discreet about this mutually beneficial relationship.

Respectfully,

Captain Louis Brown,
US Soldier Afghanistan
Someone needs to find this Pure Divine intervention terror cell and deceasify them in complete confidence for the Beloved.
