Who All Is A Vet?

Recommended Posts

Still serving. 10 years now.


What battalion were you in in 6th ID(L)? I was there 91-94. I was in 1/17th for part of that at Rich.

I'd love to go back to Anchorage. Contemplated getting out just to stay up there. Lots of guys got RIF'd right after Desert Storm and stayed.

I guess I'am not suprised to see so many vets, given the forum title. smile.gif

Lots of diversity here.

I certainly miss nothing about my 3 years in.

I guess though that there is always some good in the bad, the friends you make, and sometimes lose, and the closeness of your squad members.

To all the civilians, you didn't miss much.

Hell, I went in when I was 16, enlisted, I wanted to be a paratrooper in the 101st like my favorite uncle was in WW2.

As a kid all of us in the neighborhood would play army, all the time, I'd take my dads medals and show them off.

I probally might have stayed in and been a lifer, but it wasn't the best time, with nam' going on.

Anyway thanks for replies.

Hey LEBO, get back over to Gone Gold. smile.gif

81-83: USNR middie, served aboard DDG-12, USS Robison. Almost went to the Falklands.

86-94: USMC Arty (10th and 14th Marine Regiments). Fought in the Gulf doing counterbattery stuff. Almost went to both Iran and Korea after that.



It was a common custom at that time, in the more romantic females, to see their soldier husbands and sweethearts as Greek heroes, instead of the whoremongering, drunken clowns most of them were. However, the Greek heroes were probably no better, so it was not so far off the mark--Flashman
