I think it started with playing with plastic green army men and deciding to add a dice roll to the game. But I think that counts as miniature gaming. I saw AH's Rise and Fall of the Third Reich on a friend's father's book shelf. I bought VG's Sixth Fleet and locked myself in my bedroom until I read the rules end to end at age 14. I was then hooked.

US Army Armor/Cavalry Officer with 22+ years gaming. Professionally I have degrees in Military History and Military Science. I am a combat veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, and former combat advisor to an Iraqi Army Infantry Battalion.
I started about 14 years old. I enjoy all manner of wargames - strategic to tactical. Ancient to sci-fi (but mostly focused on WWII, Modern, and sci-fi). I enjoy miniatures too. Hence i suffer from the common addiction of spreading my limited time among multiple aspects of the hobby.
