US Military Affiliation "Roll Call"

Recommended Posts

This came up in another thread and not to steal anyone's thunder TheDucks told me to go for it.

Since this is Military appreciation month let me start by saying Thank you to all that have served and those that are still serving. Less than 2% of our population have served.

Please keep it unclass and to the point. As for lights I do both a Military and First Responder display for the 4th of July.

First of all, I big thank you for all of you who have served.  For me, I was attempting to get an appointment to Annapolis in the mid 70's, but my eyes got bad enough that I would have failed the physical when I was in 10th grade.  Then talked seriously with a Navy recruiter in 12th grade, but ultimately did not go that route.  I have often wondered how my life would have been different if I had joined the Navy.

It is in my blood a bit.  My dad made 26 trips across the Atlantic as crew of a troop transport ship (read that as un-escorted, high value target) in the Coast Guard during the latter portion of WW2, and then the Navy reserve after the war.  Got called up for two tours on a destroyer during Korea.

Deployed to Bahrain, Saudi Arabia. Literally 2 weeks out of AIT. November of '90 to March '91. I've got some pretty CRAZY memories of things that went down while stationed there.

Almost my entire enlistment, AIT through ETS, was at Ft. Sam Houston.  I spent three days TDY up there in '73 chasing tanks around while making noise-level measurements.  The food there was good, but everything else pretty much sucked.  Although it was fun riding in a tank.  Once anyway.

My hat's off to all you 'real' soldiers who actually had people shooting more than their mouth off at you.
