    Default Don't pull out the combat boots, but...

    I was just wondering who here has ever served in any military capacity? There's probably a thread that already has this but a more up to date one would interest me. Do we have any Veterans from previous wars?

    As for myself, I spent 6 years in the U.S. Air Force as a Programmer.

    Tried to.

    Since a lot of my family were in the Army, I tried joining when I was about 20, but they wouldn't take me. Tried the Marines after that, but same story.

    I have a lot of respect those that do serve, no matter what branch it might be.

    Short stint as a squid. Actually have more time as a civilian sand rat.

    Can't speak for anyone else, but for me this is a job. I tend to slide praise away from me and towards the combat and frontline guys, I think they deserve the majority of the praise. I just fix stuff.

    Without the guys at the back, the guys at the front can't do their job properly though! It's one machine.

    You're welcome, Wiccanpony. Not sure how much I contributed to freedom, and how much I just contributed to the mess of the world, but I took what I wanted from it and went my merry way.
