First and foremost, as this has been a confusing thing my entire life. My name is Chas not Chase (with an e) nor Charles, I know that sometimes the last of the three is abbreviated but I can assure you that is NOT the case here. While I had 2 great grandfathers both with the name and while we loved one side of the family we weren't so fond of the other hence the honoring of my one and the ignoring of the other by having my name be solely Chas
Other things about me, aka things I like.
Dogs, animals in general really but I do love dogs.
I love photography.
I also like to journal, read, watch movies, go fishing, as well as raise fish here at home in my aquariums.
I love to learn about other countries and have had a couple good pen pals over the years. Always interested in having one or two more.
I'm also former military, United States Air Force and United States Army. I've deployed twice, once to Saudi Arabia and once to Iraq, although I've spent time in Kuwait as well. I've been in England at an air base, as well as France, well we landed and refueled so that counts. I've been to Shannon Ireland Airport a couple of times and can say I have drank in Ireland!
I'm now a disabled veteran due to health problems. I have trained dogs since I was young and now have my second Service Dog that I trained myself. Now I get to help other people train their service dogs as I have become a Trainer and volunteer to work with teaching obedience and tasking classes to people that need to train their dogs. It keeps me busy but I love doing it. My dog and I also train for Search and Rescue, in particular Human Remains Detection. It's a very demanding training but very rewarding to see the dog learn to do the job, and for the two of us to become a good team together.
