I want to see who all is here. I know there are many services from many countries if I leave you out let me know we can edit it. I am limited to 10 so...

Here goes...:box2:

The ones that I listed are the ones that I know of from working with them. Please don't take offense if yours is not there. I have a spot for the Military Supporters. Without you all we would not have the strength or understand of what we do day in and day out. Thank you so much for your support.. Semper Fidelis.

K, don't beat me up. I forgot the Air Force. Dang on it. Someone please help me adjust this. Can't leave my other brothers from another mother out. I know in 2003 they did some damage over there in the sand box. I know they always had our skies covered.... without you thing would have been harder.

Since you need a fix anyway...maybe you should put National Guard/Reserves (all branches) in a separate category, at least since you have ten slots to work with...not that there is anything wrong with reserves. It would just be interesting...especially since they get the short end of the stick. If you keep it the way you are, except for the Air Force issue.......you should at least put reserves for each branch under their respective category.

It is you poll and these are my 02 cent worth with no disrespect intended to you or any branch.

I guess I represent the Army :smiley_thumbs_up: although I no longer serve due to disabilities received/associated with Desert Storm/Gulf War I. I could have been a poster-child for Gulf War Illness :sad:.

I still managed to put in 12.5 years of active duty. Would have retired 17 days ago if I was still active, so long as stop-loss wasn't in affect. :mad:

Still proud of my service and duty.

I'm a civilian now, but I did 7.5 years Air Force.

4 years at the Academy,
3.5 years as an astronautical engineer in LA

By comparison to the guys doing the real work (you know who you are), my experience was kush. Seriously, huge respect for those who did and are still doing the hard work. Thanks.:smileup:

Everytime you use GPS, though, that's where I left my mark.

Active Duty Army, joined in July 2006 and stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma since January 2007 with no deployments yet. I am a 92G or Food Service Specialist (Military Cook). I was originally signed up for 3 years of service before reenlisting for 6 more. ETS was November 2009 and now it is April 2015. By the end of my current contract I will likely continue and finish a full 20 year career in the Army. I don't really like my MOS but I plan on becoming a commissioned officer in the future.

I never did put my info here. 8 1/2 years in the Marine Corp. I am a military brat. Joined Summer of 2001 right after high school. Turned 18 during the first few days of Boot Camp. Been deployed 7 times (counting this one) 5 to a combat zone (this deployment included). I love my job just wish I was home more. I have a wife who is also in the Marine Corp. She has been 5 1/2 yrs. We are both Sgts. I am in the Zone for SSgt. So hopefully that will be a good kicker come soon. Doing 20 more than likely. As long as I can somewhat see my daughter growing up. My Dad missed me growing up because he was in the service traveling alot. So I don't what that to happen to me. Other than that I have no complaints. I am proud of what I do and I thank all that support US and to all my brothers and sister at arms. Semper Fidelis,

USAF Active Duty served 4.5 years thus far, currently stationed at MacDill AFB. I have done one tour in Afghanistan, and hoping to score one or two more while here. God Bless all you guys out forward and may you return home safely.

Guess I'm one of the old Geezers here, but remember my military service as if it were yesterday. Without question, the most profound time in my life and with some incredible men who let me stand at their side. I served as an Infantry Platoon Sergeant (SSG) with the 9th Inf Div. I lasted 9 months 'on the line', was wounded twice and my war was over. I was going to make a career of the USArmy, but a couple of cheap Chinese bullets gave me an early out. I am proud of those who have or are serving, extremely proud!
Easy Brother,
