All, I came over on ONL when I was 3 years old and now I'm serving as a LtCol in the US Air Force. I've recently discovered some info on ONL and am always looking for more. If you can point me in the right direction, I'd much appreciate it. It would also be nice to hear more of the/your stories. Thank you for creating the web site and I look forward to watching it grow. I've gather several links about ONL and found a site with a video if you'd like me to share; although, you probably already have it.
