With which branch of the military did you serve?

Self-explanatory.

If you served with more than one branch, vote on the branch in which you had more time in service.

I checked Air Force, but actually back in the 50's I was what was referred to by some as a "Weekend Warrior" in the MO Air National Guard.

Our unit was the 180th Light Bomb squadron based in St. Joseph, MO attached to the 131st Bomb Wing out of St. Louis MO. In those days our birds were B-26 twin engine bombers.

During my 8 years our unit was never activated to serve in a major conflict.

God Bless our men and women serving in our armed forces today.
