First let me say thanks to everyone that has served.
I spent 20 years USN as a submarine reactor operator, retired in 2000 as a chief petty officer. Spent quite a bit of time in places we probably shouldn't have been.
I did 30 months active Army airborne, 19 of them in Viet Nam. I did 11 years in the reserves and national guard. Airborne!! All the way and then some!! Right after my nap...
Imagine that you're an enemy soldier and you are surrounded by U.S. Army paratroopers on one side and American marines on the other side... Talk about a hopeless situation... That has got to be legal grounds for suicide!
USAF served from 89-93 as an F-16 Crew Chief. Stationed at Shaw AFB,SC. Deployed during Desert Storm.

Active Duty Army 1990 to 1996 Reserve 1999 to 2001.
I served in D co. 1/325-82nd Airborne Div, Ft. Bragg, NC from 1990 to 1994. I was deployed to Desert Shield / Desert Storm in Iraq. Exited as Corporal.
In 1994 I was transfered to Vicenza, Italy. I served in E co. 3/325 (airborne) later color change to 1/509. I was deployed to Bosnia, Tuzla air base under NATO operations. ETS in 1996.. the wife or the Army... that was the choce I had. Exited as Sergeant and Senior Jumpmaster.
In 1999, Vancouver, WA. I enlisted in the Army Reserve (104th Div.) as an Infantry Skills Instructor (CTT skills). Pease time mission was training ROTC cadets during there summer camp. (rifle range, grenade range, tac. movement...etc) war time mission= replace active duty cadre at basic training posts while they join units in combat. I moved to Eastern WA. where the units function was Drill Instructors. I couldn't handle the ego problems with the guys in the unit (a bunch of Adam Henry's) so I went inactive in 2001.
I was a Cold War warrior in the Strategic Air Command under Gen. Lemay. This meant training under conditions as close to combat as possible. Lemay would fire anyone who did not produce and was known to wake up personnel clerks at midnight to discharge an airman who screwed up. Max efforts called for working around the clock preping and loading bombers for 14 hour training flights and keeping the mess halls open 24 seven to feed the troops when they found time to eat. Medics hauled off lots of guys that could not make it due to stress and exhaustion. Maintenance mechanics worked around the clock. And guess what, no nukes blew up and few planes were lost, zero defects was the order of the day. Where is a Lemay when you need him? He scared the hell out of the Soviets. They had no doubt that SAC would do the job. The flight crews always had a drink waiting at debriefing so they could relax and even speak. We won the cold war.
