The avatar says it all. White with black trim. Got 3 compliments today alone.

White is pretty sick. If you do the same look I did on my silver on a white truck it would be the definition of storm troopered.

White is the color of Super Heros! Fly faster then a speeding bullet; jump tall buildings,stop speeding trains, etc....

I'm also looking to buy a Raptor because they're badass! Just go ahead and buy it already since you're so financially secure and your daddy's got your back.

Chiming in with other grads ... I'm a USAFA grad and it's people like you that make me embarrassed to say/show I'm a grad and wear my ring. Like one of the other members said, you're the epitome of why enlisted folk hate officers. You have a lot to learn before you get trampled by your folk once you get your bars. And your avatar lol. C'mon man! You don't see us other military members posing with guns or airplanes.

Anyways, just buy the damn truck!

1) I sincerely doubt I am the "epitome" of shitty-ness. I say that because I see disappointing behavior around me to which I am never a party too, for example the underage drinking parties that I simply shake my head to and walk away from.

2) Um... There is no um, um is a filler word used by indecisive leaders. I'm tired of being trampled by some members here. I agree with RLTW, sure I have ways to go but I see a lot of unprofessional attitudes in a lot of posts in this thread. Notice I have not responded to the bait as I would like to avoid having this thread become closed before I can post pics of my new Raptor.


3) As far as my profile pic goes, I think I've earned the right to choose what I want as my pic. Evanscott has a picture of a helo, so I guess according to you that does not fall into aircraft? At any rate, I fell in love with firearms long ago and have since built lowers, parted uppers together, and customized my own firearms that I earned with my job all through high-school with my own money.

Now I'm not trying to tell anyone to respect me but I just want people on this forum to just calm down and stop the animosity. I already apologized for my earlier posts, now stop.

At least at a glance I am a decent young man that worked all through high school for 3 years at the same job (not the typical, job-hopping teen) with the same high level of focus that I had when I first started to the day I left for the Academy. All through high school I never underage drank and even years later have abstained from alcohol because I never felt the need to validate myself in such a manner (I say this because I see it all around me, shockingly *sarcasm* at the Academy level too). I even kindly declined all parties and opportunities to go clubbing w/ friends during my two year stint in community college (Blinn) so that I could focus on school and get the right mindset to be successful (I still don't party). Add in the usual high school/post-high school resume you typically see in Academy applicants and that is also what I am too, a volunteer, a worker, a clean athlete, etc. So excuse me for having pride to stand above all that is usually associated with growing up today. I treat people with respect and am just shocked at the level of sheer criticism and personal attacks I have received from a lot of you.

Yeah, I'm prideful and I guess arrogant I realize that but I use everyday to get better at it so its one day forward never back. But I'm also a God-fearing American who looks forward to the day that I can really serve our country and even lay my life down if I have too.
Way to stand up for yourself, a new 0-1 can get stepped all over if he doesn't know when to say enough.
