THANK YOU!

Default Veterans

I served 22-1/2 years. My two sons and my daughter did their time. My father was badly wounded when he parachuted in behind Normandy, on D-Day. I suppose we're about as military a family as you might find.

As much as I appreciate all the nice things people say about veterans, I also have to add "Our service was nothing, compared to what we receive by living in this country. It was time well spent. For me and mine, it was an honor and a privilege". Thanks; Ernie P.

Much respect to all. I thought I'd stop by and say have a great Veterans day to all and a special one for my brothers in the USAF. I was in the 38th ARRS Det 5 in Udorn, Thailand. We shared a air strip with Air America.

dakrat: "Why Not Minot"? You've got to be kidding me. I did my last year and a half there. Nobody knows what cold is, until they've been there.

Man was it good to hear the stories of other serving or past members of the branches. My father was a Marine in Vietnam. Not sure on the rank but his nickname was Spanky as in the little rascals.
I myself and a active duty Air Force member who's a Material Management, aka supply, person and have been for 8 years. I'll be cross training into aerial gunner. Going to help protect ground forces and airplanes/ helicopters. I hope I can make it thru the new training to become one. I've read too many books on WW1 and WW2 so I'm trying to bring back the Air Force history and pride. We don't have a long history but what we do have we forget and crap all over.
Stationed 2 years at Mcchord AFB in Washington State, picked up daughter.
Been at RAF Mildenhall, UK for almost 6 years and picked up a son here.

Now that is cool, I guess RC is a pretty small community. My son is in Great Lakes at boot camp right now. Started the 12th of October. Do you know anything about a recruit setting off a fire extinguisher in the last couple of weeks? That was my 18 year old son. As I told him, great way to start off a 5 year Naval career.
