    Default Military vets?

    Just wondering how many other vets are out there. I was in the Army, only for four years, and got out right before 911 happened. Glad to have served, but also glad it's over! Also think that the Army contributed majorly to my smoking habit. Smokers got more breaks!

    I retired after 22yrs in the Air Force. I had tried cigarettes a couple of times before going into the military, but really got my start in basic training. Instead of standing in formation waiting I would be allowed to go to a smoking area and not have to stand in formation. You are definitely right about smokers getting more breaks and I took advantage of everyone I could get. I do not miss the military but do miss the people.

    Hey RedGirl,

    Cool thread! Glad to see all the military folks we've got here. I myself did 4 years in the Army. 1996 to 2001. Like RedGirl, I got out just before 9/11. I did basic training at Ft. Jackson SC, AIT at Fort Gordon Georgia and my permanent duty station was Ft. Shafter HI. Sometimes I have dreams about joining the military again and going through boot and everything all over again. Those are VERY nerve racking dreams! There was a lot that I liked but I'm happy to be out.

    -Bryce
