I have noticed that we have some military personnel on here. Please use this thread to post up what branch, how many years, status, and where you are stationed.

I am a Coast Guard veteran who served for 10 years and honorably discharged. I am a Cutterman, and Coxswain. I also was a Boatswains Mate Second Class(E-5). Served on two 378s, an MSST(plank owner), and a small boat station.

I want to thank all those who continue to stand the watch and defend our freedom.

Over 13 years with the US Army! I didn't retire but I was honorably discharged and Uncle Sam always remembers me on the 1st of the month. I was a 12B (Combat Engineer) and an 18C (Engineer Sergeant). I did the whole paratrooper, jumpmaster, HALO thing...I just love to jump outta airplanes! I spent a lot of my time overseas (stationed in Germany a lot) but also stationed at Ft. Bragg, NC and Ft Carson, CO.

My wife was also in the Army to but she was just a dirty-nasty L.E.G. but I still love here!


Currently I still work for the Army as one of those fat, lazy civie types. :) (I am neither fat or lazy) But I do get to support Soldiers daily. I can't think of a better job to do!

Interesting statement....Only Marines can make fun of the Coast Guard without a Coastie getting made. A Coastie is the only one who can make fun of Marines without being threatened by the Marine. It is because of one famous Coastie, Douglas Munro, that this is true.

Never understood why the armed services always have to compete to see who the bigger douche is. I love you guys and thank you for your service but I just don't get it.

Served 5.5 years in US ARMY in the Signal Corps. Did 1 tour in Iraq from 2003-2004. Unfortunately I got out due to medical reasons, but it saved from multiple deployments. I have so much respect for the others that have done 4-5 deployments now. Now I work for Law Enforcement as a Dispatch Supervisor. Just want to saw thanks to all our men and women who serve as military or police officers.
And as far as which branch is best. Go ARMY :smile:
