USAF 76-82, March AFB in CA. (enlisted)

Proud of my Son (in law) as a submariner stationed in Kings Bay, GA

Extremely proud of my DAUGHTER as a Naval Officer stationed in Mayport, FL.

I laugh all the time, and kid my SIL, because my daughters specialty as a SWO surface weapons officer, is as a sub-hunter. I always tell him that he can run and he can hide; but, she will always be able to find his a$$.

Only now do i understand the difference between a "ship" and a "boat".

Drafted 1963. U.S.Army US53373XXXX. I was pre diabetic. They asked If i had a medical problem as my suger was high. I said no. They had me come back the second day to recheck my sugar. I fasted and drank water all day. Ate no breakfast and passed the test. I wish our government was like the Germans. Every male must serve one year in the military. Freedom ain't Free.

This post is taylored epically for the Westborough Baptist Church and others like them.

It is written and truly so, that Greater Love has No Man than to lay down HIS LIFE for others.

A veteran is a person who put his life on the line,,, So that we did not have to.. He is a person who was, indeed, willing to lay down his life (if necessary) for others.

For those who try to disrupt funerals,, Think about it, this victim layed down his (or her) life so that we might enjoy our freedoms, so that we might enjoy our rights and so that WE DO NOT HAVE TO DIE.

Think about this Westborough types.. Think about it,, Think hard, Stay home.

No I have a better answer for them and their type, but putting it into writing could be used as evidence at a future date

Hi Joe,

I got out of active duty AF and went into the Iowa NG for 1 year. We didn't get along so I joined CA ANG, NV ANG, OK ANG, AF Reserves and back to the OK ANG serving a total of 37 years. I was forced to retire one day before 60 and that was almost 4 years ago.
