Right now this thread is just what branch. Duty stations, jobs, and other threads to follow. We wouldn't want to use it all up in one thread now would we??

I suspect the spread reflects the proportional sizes of the 5 services. I think Army is the largest.
1988 Coleman Sequoia - popup (1987-2009) - outlasted 3 Dodge Grand Caravans!
2012 Roo19 - hybrid (2012-2015)

2016 Mini Lite 2503S - tt (2015 - ???)
2011 Traverse LT, 3.6L, FWD
2009 Silverado 1500 Ext Cab, 5.3L, 4x4, 3.73
2016 Silverado 2500HD Dbl Cab, 6.0L 4x4, 4.10

Husband is a retired, Army, 06. A combination of 20 yrs active plus reserves for a total of 32 yrs.
As a family there were great times and some rough times but wouldn't change any of it. Now my husband is getting ready to retire for good the end of Feb. Our plan is a month long trip with our trailer to Key West, Fl. Can't wait!

Air Force brat, grew up in Peru. Went public safety route. I was going to enlist in 1977/78 when Carter was President but he stripped the GI Bill in a attempt to balance the budget. Career law enforcement and soon to retire.

Twenty-two years of US Army service here.

Originally in the Engineers as a truck driver, later in the Armor Cav finally in Operations/Education.

Always cherish my service and the opportunities - I found a home. Always felt a little like Andy Griffith in "No Time For Sergeants". Big old country boy suddenly a long ways from home.
US Army - Retired and loving it with our Georgetown 351DS and now our Thor Challenger 37TB.

Something that needs to be said. The toughest job in the Army, is the Army Wife! My gal was with me from beginning to my retirement. Three kids and not one word of complaint. I'm 90% disabled and could not make it without her, God Bless Army Wives!
