September 6, 2011KK is such a breath of fresh air. We all become busy in our lives & neglect the ones around us, but not this one. He knows what is important & makes the EFFORT. The world is a better place with him...Frank

I know your spirit. and I KNOW you are one of the most real people I have ever met. even with the chinks in your armor you still expose enough of you that I can peak inside and see a really good Human being....
a MAN I not only think of as a FRIEND, but closer. a lover, well havent had that pleasure, a brother, perhaps so... but truly a MAN.... one of honor even when you battle your demons..
Your strength shows.. You are a true inspiration to those that fight battles everyday. and you do it your way. You trust few, but you love many... and I am HONORED to be one of the ones you Trust and Love
Thanks YOU for the years of friendship and laughter and tears and pure real authentic YOU

I LOVE YOU KELLY.... and I have no expectations.. cept for one.. JUST KEEP BEING YOU!

with Love and all that other hippy shit...
July 20, 2010When I first met you I thought.."what a strange man". Coming from me and the strangest freak around thats the pot calling the kettle black.
Kamikaze is high energy, push ahead don't stop lets see where we land kind of energy. He has a past that he has learned from and never gives up and always try's to be the best person he can be. I admire and respect him. He is a liver of life and I am grateful for him making the world an interesting an better place to be in.
Thank you KK.
May 5, 2010I'm one of the recipients of 'Kamikaze inspiration'. Build community with Honor. THAT is the essense of Sgt. John "Kamikaze' Kelly. And it's why I'm proud to call him "friend" and "brother-in-arms".
November 15, 2009KK I met on Tribe. He is a fabulous pain in the ass. A good man. Big flirt.
Adorable. He is a good friend of mine. I am lucky to have met him.
Says what is on his mind and owns up. Can't get better than that ;-0
May 26, 2009I love you. It's that plain and simple. Your path is yours and you own it... always. Even when you seem to be questioning it... you know who, what, when, where, and why you are. That is a truly amazing thing my friend and I am full of gratitude to have been able to cross paths with you.
To many more crossroads where we will meet.

I tend to take things over the top. My sense of humor is....well, let's just say that my favorite line from a movie is from 'Full Metal Jacket' when the FNG asks the Gunner in the door of the Huey "How can you shoot Women and Children?!" drum roll, please..."It's Easy! You just don't lead them as much!!”
If I can make you snort milk out of your nose with my writings, I'm a happy Man.
I'm fiercely protective of me and mine.
When not fighting with the Military, I work Counter Culture festivals. Burningman is my favorite. From DPW (lived on the ranch 2002-2003), to a few years as a part of the BRC Airport Management Team, and currently active in Regionals. Wherever I go, I love to work, make new friends, and bum warm beers while blasting 'Cat Scratch Fever' at 7:30 AM to help the Ravers get up and enjoy their day while evicting Hippies and I actually get paid for this shit. I've got the best job on or off the Playa!
Whatever You are for....I'm against!!!
ps I reserve the right to change my mind daily...

I woke at 3 AM unsettled. Partly because of a post about somes belief in Ghosts on Facebook yesterday, but that was sparked by a group I was in the day before where a young lady said her hobby was 'Ghost Hunting' with a group at a local cemetery with cameras. When called on next I said my hobby was exorcizing ghosts when found. A young man immediately jumped to her defense and called me out for mocking her. I was defensively in his face initially, but ended up sincerely apologizing to her.Sat, September 28, 2013 - 3:59 AM permalink - 1 comment

I dance. Nimbler in age than youth!
Who knew?! That I would sense the shape of things.
Touch a woman perfectly with dark fading eyes.
I reach for a book. Knowing without looking.
Supra-natural, my senses are attuned.
My fingers close round efficiently.
Who Knew strong hands trained as a Warrior, an Athlete,
large battered hands could be so
dextrous, sound and firm. Knowing.
I danced round puddles pulling water.
She looked and marveled.
I felt ... read more

I love you. I know God has anointed you. You know you are a valuable man. But you don't have to advertise it.
Use of titles:
At Solano we opted to use professor instead of instructor to indicate that we were considered fully qualified in our field. I don't remember anyone using it as a 'title.'
Some famous people are given 'honorary' degrees. These are not tacked on to their name as PHD, although it might be mentioned (by someon... read more

I was on a Mission once. It was a 3 day Stateside that turned into 15 days overseas and won our Crew 'Aircrew of the Year'. One part I can talk about was our time in Israel.
Once we knew that the airframe was buggered (front page of the Jerusalem Post showcasing a C-5 Galaxy whose nose gear wouldn't extend is NO way to start a 'Secret' Mission), we settled in for an extended stay on the Med. After a day and night of partying in Tel Aviv, a few of us booked a tour of Holy sites.

I've been reading a book. 'The Disciple' by Stephen Coonts. An Author I met at a book signing once at Travis AFB. It got me cross referencing what I read to researching online. Mostly Wikipedia (a site a Co-Worker distrusts in the Military because Fox News is the only 'Fair and Balanced' information resource).
Now...it's rare for me to get worked up. I'm not a fatalist. I believe in the good of Humanity. I believe that the 'Truth will out'. I tr... read more
I was watching the 'Military Channel' and something sparked a thought about my 'Super Power'. Time...or at least a sense of time that strikes some as uncanny. It does me! I can wake in the middle of the night most times and sense it is 3:20 or 4:15...Sun, April 21, 2013 - 6:08 AM permalink - 0 comments
I was an Aviator for many years. Crossed many a time zone. I think I was trained to just know when 'Show Time' was. When to report for duty at 0 dark Thirty for a mission in some Country out there (of many) sleepily unknown until coffee.
Now..... read more
It's 5 PM and for the first time today, I am relatively at peace. Happy.Thu, January 10, 2013 - 4:04 PM permalink - 2 comments
My day started at the usual 7 AM and after the coffee chased the cobwebs away, my best friend woke up grouchy. It went downhill from there.
Making the bed, I got on a mission. I stripped all the sheets off and shook them out. Re-tucked everything in tightly and fluffed the pillows. By now my back was killing me. Still medicating with Gabapentin, but it was defiantly time for 3 Aleve and a sit down (in my case that me... read more

Pain bone deep
How do you Stand?
I 'get up and put my boot's on'
But some days, it is not enough
I want to die listening to 'Wish You Were Here'
I've lost a few
The why of it escapes me
I am here
Make of me what you will.
