    If you served in the reserves please just pick your activity duty component.

    We have a "Sticky" thread in this sub-forum where members can tell us about their military service.

    Veterans Roll Call.

    I'll leave this thread and poll open. Feel free to vote in the poll, but please post any summaries of your service in the above thread.

    Thanks.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Thanks Cap'n! I wasn't going for DD214's (full military summary) - the point was just the anonymous poll. I appreciate you leaving it up, the snapshot summary should be interesting.

    Your poll won't let a person vote for more than one branch of service.

    Shucks it wouldn't let me vote but once. I voted Army because I was there in 51/52, but I was also in the Air Force for 24 years until 76.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    FYI it's Marine Corps not Marine Corp. Corp. is the abbreviation for Corporation while Corps is French for a unit of Military men.
