Ever notice out of 35 pages of posts here, the vets keep their answers succinct and to the point? Interesting. Not a a lot of blah, blah, blah.

Apparently those suits were ungodly hot on their own, even without southern heat and humidity, and most of your day was sheer boredom. Yep, passed all my schools!!!
My brother was an aviation electricians mate, USN. Never on a ship though. Always helicopters or fixed wing. Spent his time in Saigon on C-123's and helos. Soaked up plenty of agent orange while there.

I was a machinists mate 2. USN '71-'75 ammo ship

Enlisted in ‘86 as 76Y - Supply Specialist. After 4 years, switched to 77F - Petroleum Supply. Decided to jump to the Maintenance side and reclassed as a 63B - Lt Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic. Got tired of the REMF MOS’s, and moved to a Target Acquisition Battery and reclassed into 13R - Firefinder Radar, which I deployed with three times. Jumped into recruiting for 5 years (79T), then reclassed into 13B - Artillery. Had a position in Range Operations at that time. 8 years later, back in recruiting as NCOIC of the Mobile Event Team, which should carry me out the last 2 years until I retire. Been a long ride, some good - some bad, but have enjoyed the numerous opportunities along the way. Am definitely looking forward to the transition to civilian life and traveling North America with my wife, who by the way, has been with me since the beginning. Kept the home front going, helping to raise two boys, during multiple deployments, schools, training exercises, and all else the military threw our way. She deserves the break as much, if not more, than I do. Can’t wait!

Thank you all for your service fellow veterans!

I enlisted in the Army National Guard in Jan 2000 as a medic, 68W, mostly with infantry and armor outfits.

I did 3 deployments while enlisted - Germany (vacation tour!), Iraq, and Afghanistan.

I took my commission in 2010 as a 61H (family medicine physician) in the National Guard. I just got back from a deployment to Poland (another vacation tour!) earlier this year. 20 years and counting... If I didn't still owe them time for med school loan repayment, I'd be retired. As it is, I'll probably have 30 years before I finally pack it in.
