In the seventies, the Virginia Air National Guard had a squadron of F-104s at Richmond. The runway ends less than a mile from I-64, over which they were not allowed to fly at low level - so the pilots would come screaming at treetop level until just before the freeway whence they would pull into a verticle climb (always a spectacular sight!).

When I was a kid, I used to war-game dive-bomb attacks on ships in the Pacific with my Granddad. He had been in North Afrika with the 2ndNZ Div, and used to talk about the German 88 Flak.

I used to use Maddmatt (I know very creative), but back in 2001 or so everyone at the Battlefront forum thought I was trying to impersonate one of the heads at BFC (Madmatt). So I changed it to keep things amicable.  Crimguy b/c I am a criminal defense attorney.

If I went with "Crimeguy" I'd probably have an FBI agent tailing me at all times.

wwengr is a standard log-in that I use. It comes from my profession. I am an environmental engineer that specializes in Biological Wastewater treatment. Hence wwengr = Wastewater Engineer.

Not very sexy, I guess...

I should say that I was... Now I am Director of Sales for North America for Siemens Water Technologies.

Mine is simply a variation of my son's middle name. Hmm, I wonder if I would be a bad father to get him addicted to this game.  I don't want social services to intervene.

Nothing exciting really, dates back to when I was gonna get a hotmail account (guess what it is ). Used my first name and the lowest possible number (again guess how many with the same first name as me allready had a hotmail account by then ).

The avatar is due to the fact that I only discovered matrixgames and these forums when it was announced that MWiF was going to be developed here (talk about luck, as I now own several games from matrixgames, and am more than pleased with most of them (one exception)). So, as some of the other guys on the MWiF forums started using some über WiF counters as avatars I thought "what the heck, I am not gonna use a Mannstein, Yamato, Iowa etc counter. I will use one that shows my nationality, and said nationality's fighting ability during WWII ".

My login name reflects what it looks like when I try to play first-person-shooters. I suck at FPS games and my game character usually stumbles slowly accross the map, neglecting cover and finding himself killed time and again by unseen enemies - I just present a large, slow target...

Well, my last name is Cue. Q-Ball was my fraternity nickname in college. I have since become follically challenged, so I guess it fits.

I wanted a different nickname, but I was a pledge so had no say. It beats "Flounder".

I liked his friend who said that he carried an umbrella because of a bad memory - he couldn't remember the passwords but he figured that no "jerry" would ever be carrying a brolly...

Major Tatham-Warner actually carried the umbrella for that purpose. In the movie, he's called Major Carlyle, and he dies, but Tatham-Warner survived.

Of course, half the people on this board probably know this story.

DE679 was my Dads ship in WW2. I run their reunions and web site for them. I had a FNG question for the forum and could not think of any other log in. Was going to join the Navy but get sea sick in the bathtub! Served in the Infantry instead, wound up on float puking my brains out anyway.
AW1Steve I am up in Falls Church, please put me on the VA list. I'll buy a round or two.

You are on it! Say , do you know where that top secret Navy base is in Falls Church? The one that they always showed on JAG? My wife has been trying to get orders there for ever (she's a Navy JAG). All the detailers say they don't know of such a base. So it must be top secret. You know that television never gets it wrong!

AW1Steve, sorry I do not know where that is. I am new to Falls Church. Used to live in Springfield off Alban Rd. My home was right in line with the air field at Fort Belvoir. Had Copters flying low over the Home all day. Kids and I loved it. Like a mini air show every day! Wife hated it, I told her that's the sound of freedom. Moved out west and could not sleep, to quiet with out that whopp whopp.
