David Navarre is an amateur military historian currently gathering material for a book on COL Edson Raff, an American airborne officer in World War II. He designs databases in Lotus Notes in order to afford his military history habit and indulge in good scotch and fine wines.
“Habap” is the Russian spelling of Navarre and, though Navarre is a Basque name, “habap” is Russian for “the fat that gathers on top of soup”. He’s been using it on his license plate and online since 1990, when he was working on a Master’s degree in Russian and East European Studies at George Washington University. He speaks no Russian any more, but has completed the Pimsleur French series, so can converse en Francais if you speak slowly and simply.
