I was reading another thread and noticed that we had a lot of Navy vets here. That then got me thinking what a poll would look like of all the services. So, which branch were you or are you in?

I was on the USS America when we crossed into the Gulf of Sidra and started bombing Lybia.

When I was DROSing a couple of years later (coincidentally on the anniversary date of our bombing of Lybia) terrorists decided that it was a good time to strike back at the Americans, to show us they were still around I guess.

I was in Naples, about 1/2 block away when they bombed the USO and the next day I was in Rota when they caught two more bombers that had cut through the fence and were trying to plant bombs on our freedom bird.

I decided I couldn't leave well enough alone and reinlisted, but in a service where I could get more up close and personal.

Looking for a way to dodge college I started thinking about enlisting... My Pops having lost a brother in Vietnam told me I shouldn't do it and if I was serious I should at least call my other uncle who was a D.I. at Camp Pendelton, San Diego. So I called my uncle and it went like this: "Hey Unc. I been thinking about joining the military and my dad wanted me to talk to you." I think spit actually came out of the reciever as he shouted into my eardrum, "JOIN THE MARINES YOU F**KING P**SY!" I said, "O.k. man it was nice talking to you." click. Scratched the Marine Corps off the list -heh- No disrespect to all you gung ho bullet proof type of dudes but I was just looking for a way to get out of town and see a little bit of the world. The image of that sailor dipping that chick after WWII has been stuck in my head ever since I was a kid so I figured that would be the lick. It was. I smoked and joked my way to E-4, did a WestPac, became a Shellback, made a few babies and when they pushed that re-enlistment paper under my nose I said "N.A.V.Y. Never Again Volunteer Yourself" and that was the end of that.

Cool! Gotta love Dust Off. MedEVAC is the best place to hide if you're an aviator. It's also the worst place to be when you need something for your aircraft since your CO is probably a doctor who can't relate to aviation maintenance. I wish him luck and I thank him for his service!

Thank you... After he was in-country about 3 months I asked him: "So son, politics aside, homesick aside... Why the hell do YOU think over there." After a short pause He replied: "Im saving lives Dad"...

Yea, you might have something there, seems theyre gonna rotate back a bit earlier than planned. Maintenace might have something to do with it.

I have a funny story about my military service.

I enlisted in the Army about 6 months after I finished high school. Paperwork is done and am on my way to basic. (If I remember right it was in Texas somewhere)

My bus pulls up to the induction hall on the base and as I step off the bus on my way in to the building I stepped in a pot hole and broke my ankle. I didn't even make it in to take my induction oath. I was taken to the the base hospital and taken care of.

A few days later the recruit services staff came and told me that since it was my ankle that was injured I would not be able to continue after I healed up. Since I never even went through induction it was like I never really in the Army. So my service contract was voided and I was sent home.

So basically the only military experience I have is the drill instructor yelling at me to get moving off the bus and to get off my lazy ass after I fell.

I was a Military Brat for 16 years of my life and then a retired Military brat for a few more. Does that count. Served in Guam, Phillipeans, Japan, California and DC. Product of many Military base schools and hosplitals. Originaly born at Eglin AFB. Did my time early. My Father passed away last week. He served 27 years and retired out as a Lt. Coln. He was burried with full honors. He entered the service originaly as a pilot and trained in the Army Air Corps in the later stages of WWII. Never got done in time to see action as the Japanese (according to him) surrendered because they knew he was coming. Rest in Peace old Soldier.

I'm the same way, I'll often use my old USAF serial number as a login password because nobody would have any idea about that one. I think I had that committed to memory before I left the in-processing center as we were heading off to basic training. In fact, I can even remember sitting next to the clerk on that December morning when she was typing my sheet. She just casually mentioned that I'd make a few points if I remembered my number before I met my drill instructor... I've never forgotten it.

My last duty station was MCAS El Toro where I got out as an E-5.

It is actually a branch of the Department of Transportation, which is where their paychecks come from as opposed to DOD, the Department of Defense.

We're actually Department of Homeland Security, as of early 2003. I don't know what benefits you're referring to, but I get the same benefits (BAH, BAS, Medical, SGLI, etc) that my friends/relatives in other services get. Not trying to argue, just shed some light on the subject. :D

The 35th Arty Bde was outfitted with Nike Hercules missiles, and was charged, at that time, with protecting the Washington DC and Baltimore areas from air attack.

As I was graduating from Basic Training, JFK made his now famous speech, declaring to F. Castro that if he erected just "one" more missile site in Cuba, he was coming down there and wipe him off the map. Gave us all something to think about.

Not too long ago, I saw a program on the History Channel, which talked about that particular time in US history, and they said that was as close to nuclear war as the US has ever been ---and only now that fact has been brought to light.

Whew....... dodged that bullet! ;)

My service number was 2656194. I served in Vietnam with VMFA-115, the Silver Eagles 71-72... Spent 4 years 1 month and 1 day in the USMC then got out to raise a family. I went through A school stationed at NAS Memphis Millington before doing my training with VMFAT-202 at MCAS Cherry Point, North Carolina. My last duty station was MCAS El Toro where I got out as an E-5.

Trivia: Did you know the U.S. Coast Guard is not a branch of the U.S. Military? It is actually a branch of the Department of Transportation, which is where their paychecks come from as opposed to DOD, the Department of Defense. This is sad because they do not receive the same benefits as vets and yet they too now serve in foreign theatres..... You Coast Guard folks rock !!!

1stGenRex is correct. Coasties get a lot of grief from "squids" about buoy tending, being "shallow water sailors", and so forth, but even though the US Coast Guard is actually a branch of the Department of Homeland Security, (Check their web site at http://www.v-twinforums.com/ ) I have always considered Coast Guardsmen (and women) to be my comrades in arms.

One interesting fact is that US Naval vessels, and the captains of those vessels, must adhere to numerous rules and regulations that are promulgated by the US Coast Guard.

USMC 1979 to the Present.
Retiring 31 July 2007. Having said that, can any of you war hero's assist me in this issue I got with my too rich, or too lean agenda.

Wonderin if you could help me out. got a 91 Sportee, she's startin real rough in the mornings here. temps about 40. turns over real good(lots a juice) but she takes for ever to fire. when she does, she spits an sputters. after about 2 or 3 minutes she starts. I'm thinkin it's fuel air mixture. too rich, or lean. Stuck on this brother. Any suggestions? After she starts and warms up, she idles fine, got the power, throttle, etc. I want her to fire right up when i hit that starter button.. thanks.

Rick..

I have a Super E S-S on her. I think I got the fuel air mixture screw not out far enough?? What is the proper amount of turns?? I've heard 2 -3 counter from seated. Well that leaves a 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 in between..

USN '92-'96

i was just curious as to what the "non" branches meant? what is a non-army branch?

I was in the "gendarmerie nationale".
In France, you have the police and the Gendarmerie wich have the same mission.
The first is "civil" and the second "military".
I was in the gendarmerie motorcycle school, Fontainebleau.

I was in the USRA - US Regular Army

We also had trainees in basic for
USNG - US National Guard
USAR - US Army Reserve


Since the 80's they've been cutting active troop levels, and hoping the Guard and Reserve's would fill the slots. People don't like that idea anymore. If you sign your name, then you should be up for anything.
