The Services are definitely a different culture and more tight knit community, easier to enter and fit in than in the real world. I missed it for a long time when I got out. Only the years and knowing that my buddies are out in the world now, make me miss it less.

:lol: No, I wasn't Airforce!

I'm a Marine! I went there for cold weather training before 3/3 deployed for Afghanistan. This has been almost 4 years ago now. Like I said it wasn't fun while I was there but now that I look back I had a good time!

Joining NROTC my junior of college so I could become a commissioned officer in the Marine Corps after my graduation. Hopefully with my degree in aerospace and mechanical engineering I will be allowed to pilot the AH-1W Super Cobra if not working with M1A1 Abrams tank would be my goal.

On a final note thank you to all that have served our country, whether active duty or reserve I look up to you.

My Mother was a Medic / Physicians Assistant in for 30+ years. She joined Navy but given the trade, she did army and airforce as well. Dad joined the Navy at 17 as a cook, and he just finished as a COXN on a ship. He was the FIRST cook to EVER make it to COXN :) My Moms Dad was a Airforce Mechanic, my Dads Dad was Navy. I have more Military in my blood than I can count.
