    2. TRUSTED LENDER (LEXIELOANCOMPANY@YAHOO.COM)
      My name is Michael Lee a citizen of Illinois, USA. i have been scammed by 7 different Internet international lender, they all promise to give me a loan after making me pay several fees which yield nothing and amounted to no positive result. i lost my hard earn money and it was a total of 23930USD. One day as i was browsing through the internet with tears on my eye i came across a testimony of man who was also scammed and eventually got linked to a legit loan company called MARTINEZ LEXIE LOAN COMPANY where he finally got his loan, so i decided to contact the same loan company and then told them my story on how i have been scammed by 7 different lenders who did nothing but to course me more pain. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan in their company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them. I filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my greatest surprise my loan was granted to me without further delay and here i am today happy because Martinez Lexie Loan Company HAS GIVEN ME A REASON TO LIVE, so i made a vow to my self that i will keep testifying on the internet on how i got my loan.

  2. What about CAPT Owen Thorpe '77? He is on the USNA staff.

  3. Capt Jim Campbell '73 is also on USNA staff and wears his uniform as an Ethics prof, but is actually retired. Capt Scott Haney '73 is MC and still on acdu but had broken service. I expect the criteria is oldest on continuous acdu.

  4. I think the real story here is that he's turning over an empty bottle of booze.

  5. Wonder if it will be PC if/when the "Old Goat" is a female? Might be deemed offensive!

  6. Good questions... Wikipedia offers the following: Female goats are referred to as "does" or "nannies;". Neither sounds very flattering.
