    Greetings everyone, I'm new to the site and the business. After 23 years of service in the Army I'm retiring and going back to what I did before joining. My Grandpa had a lawn care business and from the time I was 13 until I joined the Army at age 20 I worked for him. I am excited to get into the business and am looking forward to learning as much as possible from the members here.

    Welcome to the Forum. I just realized I am considered a Senior Member around here! Ha! Only title I've ever had!!!:weightlifter::weightlifter::weightlifter:

    Anyway, if you have questions, ask away, dont listen to the nay-sayers, and DONT rebuke all the advise.

    Weed through the Bullsh!t and there is a lot of information on here.

    Welcome back! :cool2::cool2::cool2:

    And hows life up in Clarksville? I pass through there about once every 6 weeks. Bought a nice red f-150 up there about 3 weeks ago too.

    Life in Clarksville in good. I have lots of questions but I think I'll snoop around a bit and then see what I need.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the site. I'm retired and from Clarksville too but currently working out of country. I haven't been at this long but I will be more than happy to offer any information or assistance.

    What unit were you in?

    We had some aviation next to us when I was on the airfield in Mosul after the war. I forget the unit but they were medivac. I was in 2nd BCT, 1-320 FA back then. Retired out of 4-320 FA, 4th BCT.

    Thank you. I was in Mosul for a little while during the war but then we went out to Tal-A-Far. I think 9th BN stayed at Mosul with the MedEvac form 6th BN.

    Trying to decide on a mower. Right now I have a line on a nice Hustler FasTrak super duty 54" and a Bad Boy ZT. Now sure which way to go here. Both are about the same cost wise. I know Hustler's reputation but I don't know much about the Bad Bay. Suggestions?
