John Postl was a Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Army, Combat Medic, Flight Nurse, and most of all… a Paratrooper who proudly served in the 82nd Airborne Division. John was a combat veteran of a foreign war (Desert Shield and Desert Storm). John retired from the Veterans Administration (VA) hospital where he continued to serve his country as a Nurse. John’s favorite hobbies included socializing, reminiscing about the old times with family and friends of the past, women, big breasts, riding his beloved Harley Davidsons, laughing, joking, and consuming tasty alcoholic beverages… Not in any particular order, but he often preferred all of them at the same time. John truly lived life at Full Throttle with no brakes.
