When I was in OCS at Quantico it was shortly after The Great Santini came out. I would jokingly do my impression of Bull Meecham, but instead of referring to myself as "the Great Santini" I called myself "The Great Grantini." It is important to note that my last name is Grant. Long story short it is 37 years later and I'm still referred to as Grantini... it has spread far beyond the Marine Corps and is my go to nick name...

Re; Where my Username came from.
On a roof, where two edges meet on the ridge and the initials of my name.(Henry M. Silveira,HMShip.)
Figured it was good place where like minded high caliber veterans like to hang-out and find a bargain.
