Almost 20 years active duty in the US Army 1974-1993. I took the early retirement package offered just after Clinton took office. "Don't ask-Don't Tell" was the last straw for me. Spent the whole time as an MP other than a tour with Recruiting Command. Did overseas tours in Germany, Panama, & the Marshall Islands and stateside @ Ft Riley, Ft Hood, Ft Meade and retired out of Ft Carson.
