It never get's easier, you just go faster. -Greg Lemond
I cannot believe that it has been 11 years since I took my UAA Seawolves flag to Iraq and posted it for UAA. I even had my guys flash "#1" signs even though they never heard of a "UAA." Dr. Steve Cobb (then UAA Athletic Director) even posted it on the Jumbo Tron during at UAA hockey game, which got a standing ovation. You can see the pic of me and the guys if you google, "UAA Seawolves in Iraq" or something like that.
Other things I have done:
-Served as a UAA Alumni Board of Directors.
-University of Alaska Anchorage Naming committee
-Developed new UAA License Plates that are still on the street
-Helped pursuade a study to start a UAA Law School in 2004
-Helped create a UAA AFROTC DET 001 that started in 2000.
-Worked to pursuade building UAA Alaska Airlines Center, 5,600 arena for eventual Division I Athletics (at the time)
-Help change diploma from 7X10 to 81/2X11

The folks in Alaska might have a better idea if the $1.2 billion he plans to give the oil companies is a normal thing or if he's just being their sugar daddy.
spoon tonight if the NCHC would just respond to that tinder message.
If I was any one of the other five, Iíd grow eyes in the back of my head.
But you don't have to have my background to have respect and pride in women and men in the armed forces. All you have to know is that folks increase their risk profile by taking on this work. The training is tough. The hours are hard. You can dislike the business that they're in and the people that send them into harm's way (or do extended deployments for peacetime shows of force), but you really should respect the people as a group. [But it's America and feel free to disagree.]

My brother-in-law recently made brigadier general in the Army Reserves. Two tours in Iraq, at the time he was captain of a company of engineers who went out every day and defused IEDs on the road between Baghdad and the airport. Takes a certain kind of bravery and smarts to deal with the booby-traps.
