    How many people here are either Current or Former Military?

    I spent 14 years on active duty and then got out during Clinton's time in office.I had joined the Army in 1978 and got out in 1992. I spent 2 years in the inActive Reserves and missed it so I joined the National Guard in 1994. Then in 2003 the Iraq war started and my unit was activated to Active Duty and I rolled into Iraq on April 1, 2004. I was on the largest Air Base in Iraq called LSA Anaconda. I was the 1SG of the Security Company that guarded the main gate. Then on 19 Oct 2004 my whole world changed. I was shot by a fellow soldier who was loading a machine gun. It went thru my right leg about an inch above my knee. It shattered my femur, severed my femural artiery and caused nerve damage to my leg below my kneee. I was medically discharged from the Army on 10 June 2006. I was 10 day shy of having 28 years total service.
    Now I am a stay at home dad and have a 9 year old girl who is my little buddy.


    So lets hear your service story if you feel like telling it.

    I was stationed in Germany twice, Alaska, Korea, Maryland, Washington & California too.

    Damn that's a low number, not to mention unlucky!. I came up for the draft in 1970 myself but got real lucky. #326. For people that weren't around back then, your birthdate was what they used as they picked numbers for the draft. I think it was everyone under 150 or so got drafted. A lot of those guys went to VietNam and some didn't come back. I think we sacrificed 57,000 men in that war. I don't know how many women because back then they didn't see combat.

    Thanks for everyone's service. You all gave a lot. And some gave all.

    I was just in Adak last year. Kinda spooky now. Its like everyone went home from work one day and never came back. They left EVERYTHING. Cars, furniture, all the housing fully furnished, machine shops full of tools. On and On. Its like the Twilight Zone.

    I heard that the base was closed, that place was a trip...craziest weather on the planet. It could be 70deg, raining, snowing, hailing or white out blizzard conditions all on the same day!
    Had a great time there however. I'd love to go back someday.

    The Government closed the bases on Adak in 1996 and gave it to a native corp. I work in the telecom industry, so we still have stuff there for the 60 or so people that are still residents.
