Wow, Lotta Military and Ex-Mill's here..


First, Thank you, each and every one of you! I'm proud to have you securing the ways of Freedom and Liberty for everyone, not just me.


Every male in my family except me has served in the armed forces (it's not a tangeable tradition in my family however.) I lost my father to Vietnam (mentally, he is still alive) So war faded fast on me at a young age. I never enlisted or wanted to.

Decided, that I would work to make change at home from inside, thats where I could help most.


Again many humble thanks.. and SALUTE!

Silent Ranks


I love you baby! And miss you more then you know :icon_sad:


Not many people know this, But the hardest job in the Military, is being a wife.


you take care of the kids, the bills,take care of the house, the holidays, and hardest of all you have to not only explain to the kids why daddy is not gonna be home for christmas, you also have to deal with the heartache of knowing that its so many days until he comes home.


Hang in there AndersonCollectibles.

I was in Army ROTC in college, not that that counts much.


+1 about the wives....my mom is a strong woman. Three kids and a Navy wife. Worse, was when my dad would come home after a year away and as toddlers, we would cry and run away from the strange man. Just when we got used to him being around, he would leave again. Tours as a US attache to the Brits at HMS Dryad in Englamd during the Falklands, the admiral's staff on the USS New Jersey commanding the action off Beirut in '83, then a 'tour' living at the Navy Annex in VA under Adms. Jeremiah and Boorda re-organizing the Navy. It took me until my 20's to truly get to know my father. :(
