Born and bred a Buckeye, and spent 23 years in the military in SOF units...

QB at Cambridge, 79-80. School still recovering from almost dropping sports in 78 due to a failed levy. Went 1-18-1 over my Jr/Sr years. Won the last game of my Sr year against Cincinnati Taft. I was toted off the field twice in an ambulance my senior season.

Cambridge, OH. I was almost 8 My dad, a full time NG, and his unit were on standby to deploy to the riots. I was probably on the side of 'don't throw rocks at folks with guns'. What many don't realize, the NG there were probably confused and scared, and became targets for the protestors. Sad for all involved.

So, being an old retired vet myself, who keeps up to date on most goings on, how much does this have to do with the teachings/ attitudes of the professors and such on college campuses? To me at least, I believe that plays a part in this pathetic behavior. Quite frankly, this behavior really deserves an ass kicking.

Jason, I assume there were at least 2 jail sentences for that 'offense'?

With regard to your neck/back pain, you're going to have to assess your  body and what you're ready to do. During my time in the military, I had issues begin with my neck due to a bad parachute accident. It built up slowly (disc bulging in c5 - c6 area). Eventually I woke up one morning with the worst pain I've ever experienced (felt like a railroad spike being driven into my neck. After two days of docs giving me muscle relaxer shots in my arse, I was finally given some real pain killer (morphine). After a few days, the pain subsided, and I had numbness in my upper right side of my back, my right triceps, down into my hands (could not do a push up or even push myself out of a chair. After a series of xrays, MRIs, and various others, they determined the issue. Physical therapy went first, but after the first few, I hurt worse than before, with no improvement. I opted for surgery sooner, rather than waiting for 6 months and hope the therapy worked. The doctor shaved my vertebra back a bit to relieve pressure on my nerve, and I was back to full op mode (jumping, shooting, running, etc.) in two months. It took almost a year to get most of my feeling back (never got it all back). 4 years later, it began again (the numbness, weakness, etc.). Figured out I'd need another surgery, so after returning from a deployment and getting a last jump in, I had two discs removed and a fusion done. I took awhile (couple years, but finally got my about 80-85% of my strength back, but it took commitment to working out and being very willing to swallow my pride in how I went about working out). There is still weakness (always will be), but I'm doing well and able to function pretty well. I was 38 on my first surgery, and 42 on the second one. I'm currently 52. Listen to your body. 

Oh, deep tissue wonders.

I'm one of the 2% of Buckeyes in North Carolina. Came here through the military and stayed after retirement. In and around the Fort Bragg, Camp Lejeune areas the percentages of folks from other parts of the country is much higher.

The AF brass almost had the A10 gone prior to the first Gulf War, until it proved its' worth. It has been upgraded, and grunts on the ground know the value of the Hog. It's not flashy, and not a new program. Truly a good weapon is relevant until it isn't, and the A10 is more than relevant, as no other A/C can fill it's role. AC-130 gunships are good, but are too slow to provide the role of the A10.
