Default Are you a Vet?

Just curious as to how many folks have served and when and where? And was your Miitary Service part of the reason you ride? Myself,,,U.S. Navy 1973-1977 Westpac U.S.S Enterprise CVAN-65,,, STANAVFORLANT U.S.S. Richard E Byrd DDG-23 and the only reason I went in the service besides the Judge saying I had too was to get some cash together to buy a Sportster. And I ride because I learned to really appreciatte the ability to do what you want when you want while I was in doing what somebody else wanted when they wanted it.
