Tell about things that have made you very happy and may have become the greatest thing that has ever happend to you.
For example ... Becoming a parent etc etc.
My greatest moment in my life is my marriage which brought me to a new family where my In-Law's accepted me not like a daughter-in-law but like their own daughter.
So,what is your's greatest moment and why?

Second would be the day that I got to stand on the bomb bay catwalk of a B17 as the doors opened below me (which... scared the sweet loving Jesus out of me, and I will never do it again, but the view from 20,000 feet was incredible, and I am happy as hell that I did it in the first place, because now I can say that I did)
Third was the day I got to fight against a Panzer IV (not an original, but it was impossible for an amateur armor enthusiast like myself to tell the difference) during a WWII reenactment and actually managed to get the drop on it with a PaK38 that we uhhh... "liberated" (via the use of an accordion, a pair of soiled briefs, some duct tape, kerosene, a zippo, and a plan so insane McGyver would've called bullshit and walked away from the planning stages) from some Germans that were using it to harass our T34s.
For reference, this is a Panzer IV (it is big, scary, mean, and is there to ruin the hell out of your day):
This is a PanzerAbwerbeKannon (roughly, Anti-Armor Cannon, or PAK) 38:
As you can see, it's approximately 1/5th as big, and only 1/12th as scary (it doesn't have a hull mounted MG34 for one thing... or a coaxial 34... or a turreted MG42... or the ability to crush the average midsized sedan underneath its wheels).
Is a flaming pair of boxer shorts. Now picture those, but with something horrible, scavenged from the latrine, hidden inside, partially wrapped in duct tape on the outside, and flung straight at you like a hand grenade. You wouldn't stay in that artillery position either
The accordion was there to make the Germans look away while we lit that sucker up and tossed it in there. Whoever said living history has to be boring?
