Thank you Avenger61! for your service, I spent 21 years in the Army. This coming week we are going on our last camping trip for the season down to Washington PA. Wife wants to do the outlet mall there.

Hey, fellow Vets! I'm a retired USAF vet (MSgt-Rick), retired in 2004 after 22 1/2 years. (Sr Intel Analyst; Master Instructor; IG Team; Airborne Special Ops on the MC-130 Combat Talon; Space Operations; and First Sergeant) We live a stones throw from the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs (and we park our 34 foot trailer at the Academy RV lots)
Today, I'm a group manager for an amazing small business and work out at the Missile Defense Agency at Schriever AFB.
We are very blessed and LOVE this country and, having been to 18 countries outside the USA, I know ALL too well how fortunate Americans are with our liberties and freedoms that no other nation has.
God Bless the USA!

US Navy Submarine Service from 1966 to 1973. Served as a nuclear electrical operator and engineering watch supervisor on a ballistic missile submarine.

Thank you to all who serve in today's military!

I served in the Marines 1967-1970, with 32 months in Viet Nam. Would like to hear from any Marines from the same era. I was with 3/7/1, III MAF, and CAP.

I was on the Mississinewa from Dec '72 - Aug '75 and I remember a lot of close calls during refueling ops. I don't recall that particular one so maybe I wasn't there. My memory isn't what it used to be.
