    American Hero: Silver Star, 2 Bronze Stars, 2 Purple Hearts
    Special Forces Capt. Richard J. Flaherty AKA The Giant Killer - Due to his size he needed a waiver just to join the military, but no one ever believed he could even make it out of Basic Training. He not only made it through Basic but he was accepted in Officer Candidate School. In December of 1967, he was sent to Vietnam with the 101st Airborne Division. One of his first tests as a Platoon Leader was during the "Tet Offensive." He served as a Platoon Leader with companies B, C, and D and as a Recon Platoon Leader with Echo company.
    In January of 1969, he returned to CONUS and attended the Special Forces School at Fort Bragg and was then assigned to the 3rd Special Forces Group. Later that year he returned to South East Asia with the 46th Special Forces Company A-110 in Camp Pawai, Lopburi Thailand.
    At 4-foot-9 97lbs, Flaherty is believed to be the smallest man to serve in the US military. Captain Flaherty's incredible life story was captured in the book, The Giant Killer

    Those Safeboats are a lot of fun. Quad 350s. Air ride seats. Fast.

    @NotaSuv did you happen to see this flyover Titusville today. Went to the shuttle landing strip to clear it.

    An-124 aircraft. Russian flag. You can almost always Google the tail number of any aircraft. Very easy way to find out a ton of info. This one belongs to a Russian cargo transport company called Volga-Dnepr.

    Wonder what the cargo is? Probably US currency.

    While it would be a violation to disclose that info... I will tell you I scanned 100% of the crew, thier luggage, the entire interior of the aircraft, as well as the cargo for radiation sources. They were not happy about breaking security seals to open the metal containers. I've never seen cargo metal containers so thick. Made me think of a possible shielding attempt to block radiation. However unlikely it sounds that Russia would chose a US Gov facility to smuggle in a nuke, we don't take chances with SNM. (Special Nuclear Materials)

    One of the of the two hand held devices we use to identify radiation cost about $35K a unit.

    The other device is carried by every single CBP Officer on thier gun belt ( about the size of a doctor's Motorola pager) and is on at ALL times. Called a Personal Radiation Detector(PRD). I know if you tell them you lost one, they **** a brick. But I have no idea the cost.

    One thing I can say DHS CBP does well is scan for radiation at the Ports of Entry.

    On a good day they should be able to hit about 70 knots. Unofficially of course. The hull design makes for a hard hit at speed in rough waters. That flat section really hits the water hard. If it weren't for the seats you would not be able to do the job more than 10 years. Your knees and back would be blown out.

    I can only imagine the airy openness and imaging is really good with that set up. I've never heard the KLH panels or Maggies. Closest I've been to a speaker like them would probably be a Martin Logan.
  • I had a pair of KLH 9s that were excellent sounding, I think I was using them with a CJ MV75a amp. Everyone should have an opportunity to hear them along with Quads and Servo-Statics and Beverages.
