Recommended Posts


I found an old friend from high school on Facebook today. Asked him what has happened to him lately and got this back...

Today at 2:20pm

Hi, just wrote on your wall, right before I saw this. Tim got out in 2006. He's a line manager at the Frito Lay plant here in town now, and going to school to get his BS/Masters in engineering, right now he's leaning toward aeronatical or mechanical, not sure what he wants to do when he grows up :) We've got one little girl, total daddy's girl, whodda thiunk it, Tim loves being a dad. Glad you got out safely. What are you doing with the DOD? Curtis Crawford

I am now working for DOD dept of defense still in anti-terrorism/ weaponds.I am married have 6 kids & my oldest is working for the FBI. where r u livin? how much more does tim need to go before he is done with deg?

I just copied your message over to Tim at work... he said...


Cool. Most shocking bit: "...my oldest is working for the FBI". WTH,

did he get someone pregnant graduation day?


"...RANGERS LED THE WAY." We're OK to let the Rangers practice leading

for awhile, but eventually we have to show them where we're actually

going. ;)


One, I can't believe someone my age has a kid working for the FBI, my kid is four.

Two, I can't believe all he's gone through. I want to pick his brain a little, but figured it would be better to sort of firm up our reaquaintance first. But wow, talk about a true hero. And it seems like he's just talking about any other day... no big deal. Just wow. :salute:
