If you are retired, state which branch you retired from.
If you work as a civilian, state which branch.
If you are Guard, state which state you are a member of.

I have no branch. My brother in law was in the Air Force. That's as close as I get.

I would like to thank all of you that chose to join up and serve. It really takes a special kind of person to enter that type of job/life.
Thanks!

Sorry Bill, but the poll was already getting too big for answers. So I wasn't able to include Brats.

I couldn't get Military Contractors in there either.

Hey Trooper, Where did you do Ohio Air Guard duty? I was at Rickenbacker with the KC-135E then R Refuelers from 1990-1994. That includes the merge of the Fighter Wing. I was in the Avionics shop (Com/Nav).

Thanks. My hats off to all the men & women serving our country.

If we're going to include family history, Dad was U.S. Army. 2nd Rangers WWII was his first tour. Oldest brother; 101st LRRP (received Ranger Tab in VN jungle, '68. So I'm considered 3rd gen Ranger. Oh yeah, mom?... WWII w/ OSS in London.

Currently, my nephew / godson is a U.S. Naval Aviator. He is flying the E2C Hawkeye out of NAS Norfolk w/ the "Screwtops". He finished first in his class, in both OCS & Naval Aviation training and that was the A/C he chose.

As you were....

7 months Air Force Reserve.

Oh, and I'm a 3C2x1. Communications-Computer Systems Controller, Tech Control, Water Walker, whatever you want to call it, as long as you know that when your stuff stops working it's probably because you made us mad. :)
