An Interview with viperjock

Last updated: 3/11/2012
The Fool:
How do you define success?
Being a good husband and father. Finding time to enjoy as many good things in life as you can--while you're young enough to really enjoy them.
The Fool:
What is your most distressing regret?
I try not to get distressed over anything, but maybe not being able to spend much time with my mom in the last years before she passed away.
The Fool:
What has been your best work experience, and what made it so great?
Me and "Elmer" being "red air" adversaries at a Red Flag Exercise in Nevada. Sneaking up on the good guys and spanking them right after they crossed through "Student Gap." And the maintainers were all watching on the big screen back at Nellis AFB. Short of real combat, which no one should take great pleasure in, that was the best.
