    Of course! It doesn't matter what country or branch of service. Just curious as to the number of vets on this board.:cool:
     
  9. US Naval Air Reserve, 6 years. Enlisted Aircrew. Airborne Acoustic anti-submarine warfare detection. quite the adventure. would do it again if young again, but definitely not under current administration, and I wasn't cut-out for military career beyond 6 years. I simply needed someone to kick my butt for prolonged period of time at age 19. but the ASW (anti-sub warfare) route was incredible, on retrospect, during Reagan era. Edit: Those were precisely the "Hunt for Red October" days.

    We had a Co. Commander shoot a deer one summer camp. The company took it back to the barracks area, dressed it in the shower and cooked it for dinner. What did he get in trouble for? Serving uninspected meat in a government chow hall.
