    Are you a long-lost younger brother? :laugh:

    Joined the Army in '84, and spent the last 17 years at Ft. Bragg in 3d SFG before retiring in '07. I could list some of the places I've been, but then I'd have to...


    OMG is that a zombie!?!

    US Army for 6 years. Got out about 6 months ago. Still miss it sometimes, but mostly love being a civilian.

    Did a year in training, year in South Korea, year in Iraq (or as people say these days eerock), and four years in Savannah GA.

    I swear every time I say Savannah GA people say Fort Stewart. Hunter AAF people. Although I do still go hunting on Stewart.

    Nice thread, I was in the Air Force :2cool:. 1W051 (Weather) :matrix:.

    Basic in Lackland AFB, San Antonio, Texas :|.

    Tech School at Keesler AFB, Biloxi, Mississippi. Before Katrina, the casinos were fun :party:.

    Then Sembach AB, Germany. Oh, do I know K-Town like the back of my hand :closedeyes:. The owners of a few bars still remember me :headbang:.

    It was an experience I will cherish. The military had become, to me, the kinder gentler pc military was not like my fathers military :blink:. Everything was paperwork...But I guess its all about which job you have. Still stay in touch with good friends stationed or seperated living all over through Facebook :).
