For Logan, the draw was pretty much based on his Scottish nature - the opportunity to sell ironwork, though he used to fight heavy weapons and did a bit of rapier fighting as well back in ancient times when he met some SCA people at the Larkspur fair in Colorado, before Ansteorra was a kingdom.

I can't believe I didn't think of the following people, besides Logan, who are my ties to the military:

My mother - USN
My sister - USN
my brother - US Army, 1st Cavalry Tank Division during GWI
my daughter - US Army, GWII, Kuwait & Iraq, 1st Liet

Proud to be related by blood & marriage to terrorists,
