OKIE= Oklahoma Key to Intelligence and Enterprise.
Alot of people I run into around here are transplants from somewhere else, just like me. I think alot of the smart and friendly people are moving out of places like California and such. I love OK, like my my screen name says Im nevergoingback! (to Cali at least)

Brigadier is only a 3 star General, wouldn't you want to be a 4 star?

I know at least in the Air Force it's Brigadier General is one star, Major General is two, Lieutenant General is three, and General is four.

And yes I'd love to be a four star! But the chances of that are slim to none! I worked to a three star over the summer and a drooled at the thought that he was a three star. I'm sort of an ROTC geek (I'm in high school ROTC right now). So when I found out he was a three star I got excited like I was meeting a celebrity.

And who knows maybe when I visit San Diego in March all get it all out of my system and then can settle for Oklahoma.

My Father inlaw died 2 years ago and was buried at Riverside Arlington National Cemetary in Riverside Ca.
He was given the works, 21 gun salute, everything. I met high ranking officers and personally met a 4 star Gen, that was a very good friend of the family.

When I have to leave this earth that's how I would like to go. 21 gun salute and all. With pride and honor. I need to make connections with some 4 stars so that maybe they can help me out when I get in the Air Force (possibly pull some strings for me)

To clear things up, Oklahoma is not Southern or Midwestern, it's between the two. But out of the two, Stillwater is more Midwestern. Lots of agriculture and wheat fields. Not cotton fields like in the south.

I guess Oklahoma is in the same boat as Maryland. Maryland isn't really a Northern or Southern state. Sorta just in-between the two.

Does Oklahoma get many tornados?
