From the Colonel's Regiment
May 18th, 2001. Only fourteen days after May 4th, 2001. An ordinary date to many, even most, but to a group of four bright-eyed lads from the North (and three from the South), that date marked the first beginning of an adventure that is still, even now, in the adventuring process. But little did they know at the time what plans were a foot for them!
For it was on May 20th, 2001 that these four lads, and the other three, were first introduced to the Colonel. A sorbet confection of such inspiration, dynamism, integrity, and inspiration, that they were immediately resolved to enter its service in a very real and morally binding sense.
Every 6 months since May 21st, 2001, or thereabouts, the Colonel reveals a new mission to the Regiment. Somewhere, usually reachable by budget airline, a mission is to be attempted. And we, who are the Colonel's Regiment, will be the ones to attempt it.
