  • He’s 31 ????? He looks 60 !

    • You’re using a handle that is very similar to mine. Could be coincidence.

        You’ve said that before. Hmmm and hmm are two completly different spellings. Who could possibly mistake the two. It’s as different a Dawn and Don. I’ve heard of ‘handle envy’ before, but this is ridiculous.

    • He’s a sweet young man with bad ptsd from war who also managed to kick cancer in the ass. So yes he may not loot his age.

  • Somehow he does not look like any of the veterans I know.

  • How scary for the VA employees 🙁

    Thanks to Eureka PD!!

  • He’s a Army vet and he also kicked cancers ass. Yes he has bad ptsd. But is also a very loving guy!!

    Maybe it was the crappie tv reception at the VA’s waiting room….it’s constantly freezing and going out….and it’s always on Bonanza or rifleman or matt dillon!
    Glad they’re all ok, including Jesse.
