Old things new...
I guess I have been registered on here for quite some time, but I have rarely logged on. I suppose there were reasons enough for that, as well as using this log-on (a play on my last name). I've been assured those reasons are a thing of the past, so here I am.
Many will know me by "Switchback". I would have registered with it, but my email already had this name on it. Ah well.
Anywho, for those who don't know me, I am a U.S. Marshal. I have been doing it for about 14 years now. I've been doing fugitive work exclusively for a long time now. I did a stint as a sniper on our Special Operations Group for many years, doing a little of this and that here and there. I recently gave it up for a promotion and just do the hide-and-seek thing these days.
Well, that's that... nothing much else to me. I'll get to work on the verification thing next.

Howdy from the Emerald Triangle'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

WelcomeJust because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

Thanks for the great welcome, guys (and gals).
FYI, Reca offered to change my name. While I was not going to bother him with asking, I certainly will take him up on the offer... so, expect to see Switchback floating around here soon.

...and is it just me, or are there a lot of (presumably) LSU fans around here?!?!?!
Don't worry... I am not hating. While a little fanatical down there, I feel a bit of connection after all the time I have spent, hanging out in Louisiana over the years.
