Sorry all, I didn't notice this is an old thread. One to many homebrews.

Nothing wrong with hitting an old thread.

Thanks for reviving it...lots of good laughs.

I still do the gig line thing as well and also tug all the wrinkles out of the front of my shirt by pulling them to the back.

Don't wear a hat very often anymore but it still bugs me to no end to see people wearing hats indoors.

When going to the movies I still catch myself starting to stand up for the National Anthem.

If I'm out driving and notice that it's almost 5pm I still get the urge to stop my car for retreat.



THINGS I NO LONGER DO:

Tent camping (that's what RVs are for!)
PT (I guess that's why I'm so fat.)

still maintain the “gig line” on my shirt, belt buckle, and trousers
always start off walking with my left foot forward
still use 24 hour time
still use ddmonthyy for dates
still say sir to lots of people
Still shower and shave every day even when camping (I am not fully awake till I have shaved, no matter how long I have been out of bed)

Some of these stem from the fact that I retired from and immediately went to work as a civilian for the Navy, and still have a Captain to report to as a supervisor.

He wants me to call him Larry...no way, can't do it...best I can come up with is skipper, and even that feels way too informal to me. I still struggle with not saluting him when I see him for the first time each day (outside of course), even after 11 years!

Glad you bumped the old thread...I enjoyed it and missed it the first time!

Spent 20 years in the Candian Forces Air Force and I am still working for them. I guess I am in the minority as about the only thing I still do is call offices sir or Mam. I get up at 4:30 every day but that has nothing to do with the military as I either worked straight days in a radar lab or shift work on the flight line or avionics hanger. I still miss the Air Force and actually working on fighters but that was days gone by..

Oh yeah...still roll my clothes when packing for a trip (my wife has broken me from that habit in my dresser drawers).

She does just lay out her clothes when we are packing and lets me fit it all in the suitcase - the benefit of living out of a 7inch deep "coffin locker" and one small hanging locker.

Also, "gear adrift" still makes me nuts (not at home of course - but in the trailer, before it moves everything must be secured for "sea").

I scout the area I am camping in for two points of egress in an emergency if needed. I follow strict safety guidelines when shooting with family and friends. I salute the flag when the National Anthem is played. I think congress passed a law last year allowing former military to salute.

I am a Navy Vet and also a member of The Elks. We have many programs for Veteran's. My favorite is a Vets breakfast where we serve all the usual including SOS to several hundred Veteran's and thier families. You can always tell where a Veteran's have been sitting because there is no mess left on the table. This is something that is a great habit left from the military that I like. The local politicals table looks like they want someone to clean up after them.

Unless I am sitting in a vehicle going down the road, I always stand for the National Anthem. Sometimes, that is all it takes to encourage everyone to stand.

I too stand when it plays, but in civilian theaters they don't play the National Anthem before every movie!
