With Chief heading off to duty and a few TT members back from foreign tours, who are the other members serving or served in the Armed Forces? and what did or do you do? (If not classified) I know there are a couple new fly-boys out there too.

I was in the Army back in the 80's 1st Batallion 2nd Field Artillery/B-Battery 155mm-Self Propelled Howitzer stationed with the 8th Infantry Division Mechanized (8th I.D. dis-banded early 90's) in Baumholder, Germany (West Germany at the time) They were called the 1st & 2nd "Old Regulars" I was a cannon cocker :D

Folks --

I am so happy that I found this forum a few days ago. For the past 8 years I wandered aimlessly throughout Michigan and Indiana water skiing with my family. The missus quietly listened to my incessant tirades regarding jet skiers (the lowest form of water borne humanity), tubers trashing the course even though the lake is 5 miles long and an assortment of other buffoonery. It gives me great comfort to know that I am not alone.

Thank you all for a great forum!

US Navy -- F14, F18 -- Desert Shield/Storm/Southern Watch
Indiana Air Guard -- F16 -- OIF (x2)
