    Deck? 2 yr "Apprenticeship Program"? Haze Gray and Underway?

    Part of me wishes I'd have made it a career. I'd be retired for a couple of years now...

    US Army 06/1996 to 12/2003. Technically served in the 2nd Gulf War, but never deployed to the sandbox (came damn close a couple of times).
    Did some intel and liaison work with South Korea for most of it.

    US Navy 76-81. Got to visit 17 different countries. Some were nice...others I would have turned into glass.

    It wasn't just a job...it was an adventure!
    Universal Background Checks...the next step towards registration and confiscation.

    I technically served in the first one, and received lots of the medals from it for no other reason than being deployed overseas past a certain parallel during a certain time period. In other words, for no good reason whatsoever. At least I did actually deploy to the Middle East eventually, but I certainly never had any hand in liberating anything as the fruit salad may fool you into thinking. After watching about a dozen commendations for things I did go to my superiors I finally got one myself...for something someone else did. That was pretty much the end of any delusions of an apolitical meritocracy. At least beyond the whole pattern of service thing... I made E5 on my way out and served my last few months pushing SAR Puppies at NAVSTANORVA. They thought they were punishing me for getting out.

    It was GREAT! Don't throw me in the briar patch! Morning muster was in PT gear for an hour of drinking coffee with the shore duty Chiefs, who didn't give a damn about nuthin'. At 7:45 I mustered the SAR Recruits on the grinder and PTed them for an hour, then a 5 mi fun run, then an hour of informal training; pool work once in a while. No duty rotation and no other responsibility. I was off base by noon three days a week and by 14:00 the other two, and every weekend off. I was actually nice to the recruits, and tried to get them ready and prepared to get through it...unlike some of the other guys who thought it was their job to start yelling at and torturing them before they even went to school.

    I loved the Navy. I didn't stay in, because I thought life was passing me by. It wasn't, but I didn't know any better. Not the least of my regrets, but surely not the greatest either.

    USAF 73-96 - mostly a Cold War Warrior. Spend some years flying in a plane you never heard of till the past decade or so - it's good to be out of the closet. RC-135 in various forms, and I worked with U-2 systems. Don't ask me what I did, I'd probably still have to kill you. Sandbox time was post Gulf War 1, but still in time to officially have Desert Storm credit on my record.

    Here's to all my brothers and sisters in arms, whenever, wherever!

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Served in the Marine Corp for one enlistment starting in '78. They made me a bean counter, so I spent my time helping make sure the Marines at the sharp end had what they needed.

    Respect and thanks to those that didn't have it as easy as I did.
