How many of you are living in NC, and what city? Just curious.

In April, I'll be back home in western NC (about halfway between Hickory and Lenoir). In June, will move somewhere in the western half of the state (somewhere between Burlington and Murphy!).

I live in Florida but I am from North Carolina and all my people are still there. I was born in Asheboro, raised in Rocky Mount and spent my last 10 years there between Atlantic Beach and Wilmington. I'll be back in about 10 years I hope.

It's a shame too that the Southern Sons can't be counted on in a time of need to defend the Homelands![|)] Of course, the two of you could change that and put on some grey to wear. I am sure we can find a command or two who would put you fellas to work![:p]

Born and raised in the North Nick. I was just fortunate enough to marry a Southern Belle from NC and move here. I do prefer the weather down here. [:D]

No, sir, you are not. I live in Charlotte (although there are plenty of people in this state who don't count it as part of NC [:D])

It's all the damned yankees here, you see.

Gentlemen <salute>

I'm surprised at the number of Yankee officers living in North Carolina. I pray ya'll don't run around town in them Yankee uniforms, as it may be hazardous to your well-being [B)]

It's damnyankees, Phil. It's one word in the South... [8D]

Within the last year or two, there was a really good article in the Charlotte Observor, one of those fun editorials some of their guys do, explaining the difference between a yankee (someone from the north who comes to visit) and a damnyankee (the ones who stay!).

General Blackburn Suh,
Bet you wished that you were living a bit further south, with the cold snap and all. I used to live up in Greensboro about six yrs ago and I know it snows and gets cold up that away. Now I live as they say south eastern NC just outside of Wilmington. My wife loves the beach and when I got a chance to move closer we moved, myself I love the mountains but as you can see who won out and she's a Yankee. I'm also surrounded by them, I live in a small subdivision and out of 9 homes seven are relocated Yankees [:(!] either from New Jersey or Michigan [V]. So I guess that makes them DAMN YANKEES [}:)]

Lt. Gen. Gery Bastiani
