Texas Roll Call

There is a FL forum section on here and I thought it would be nice to be able to talk with Texas members who deal with similar local issues. Chime in with some info about who you are, what your company does, your head count, and annual sales. I'm sure this thread will generate some useful info if we can get some decent participation.

Well thank you. I was in Texas from May-Aug of 2004 at Fort Hood, preparing to deploy to Iraq. The many drunken nights in Kileen, TX.

I was stationed at Fort Hood from 1993-1994. Fort Hood never sent me to LA but I went next door to MS to Camp Shelby. The National Guard filled up my Hummer with mogas. I would be scared as hell to deploy with any Guard unit. In Desert Storm the Guard guys stood out like a sore thumb.

If we can get a decent handful of people subscribed I was even thinking about putting everyone in my email address book. We could hit reply all and BS back and forth off the radar of some of the folks on here who just don't understand the Texas ways.

You try to talk about your hard working south of the border workforce and someone always want to chime in about how your stealing a job away from an American. Blah, blah, blah... Way too many people are totally ignorant and don't understand 99% of Americans don't want to pick crops, mow lawns in our heat, or do construction work. Their either bums or they have higher goals in life which is a good thing.

You guys are not going to believe this. As you know the laws have changed and it is supposed to be impossible to get a DL without proper papers in TX now. Well, my foremen who I thought was a few weeks from having an expired DL and no job has a new DL good until 2018.

I can't give you the details of which DMV location did this but I would suggest if any Espanol foremen are still out there with a soon to expire DL they should head to podunk towns to try to renew. The country folk are not battle hardened like the city DMV people are.

I lost a foremen last year to an expired DL and thought for sure I was going to lose this guy as well. My foremen is one lucky SOB. I still can't believe it. Now if I can only make it rain.

I HAD a dream

Well in light of pursuing my dream of owning my own lawn and landscaping business I chose to join the Army for a consistent paycheck to provide for my family. Needless to say, here I am in good ole Fort Hood. I see that several people on here are familiar with the area. My question to you is this, what do I need to do to have an amazing looking yard on post? The grass and soil seems to be a little different than what I am used to. Thanks for any input.
