There are always exceptions! Because it is unpredictable.

With 9 out of 10 people supporting the combat troops, many never see any action, but everyone of them is as important as the man that is on the frontlines. A good friend of mine joined the USAF about the same time I went in the Army. His first duty assignment after training was Dyess AFB. He retired at Dyess, never was stationed anywhere else, 20 years in the Base finance section making sure payday happened.

Cast, your Texas drivers license should show veteran status. Mine is at the bottom of the front side.

I showed it to both Lowes and Home Depot to get discounts on everything you buy.

I fought in a war despite being underage and having never joined the military. When I tell people about it they look at me like I'm insane. It's a big world out there and there are lots of possibilities. You can never tell what's going to happen.

They both make you do it online now linked to your phone number. They use a verification service.

Very seldom do they accept the id card

That comment above about “most guys that do twenty years never fight” is the second stupidest comment I’ve heard but maybe tied with the first which was, “my 36 months in the Marines (kicked out for being a fat pencil pusher) were harder than your 20 plus in the Air Force”.

This kinda crap is why I don’t join the VFW nor American Legion and the reason most of us retires don’t. So many sniveling 1 termers.

Well, if you regard the 1 termers as “sniveling” that says a lot. If you don’t have mutual respect with your dudes you have already failed as a leader. It goes two ways.

But that said, probably most “1 termers” never fought either. So I’ll give you that

Good, we don't want you either.

Just because you're a retiree does not make you any better than the person that only did one term.

It took me 10 years (3 terms) to figure out that I did not want to spend another 10 years in the military. You'll get adventure and see the world for sure but you won't make any money. I accomplished my goals, did my part to serve my country, honorable discharge, had the best job the Army could offer (EOD) and got my education (under grad & grad) paid for by Uncle Sam. Good luck, you'll need it with that attitude. I hope fellow THF Veterans take notice of you.

Interesting, as well as some disappointing comments on this thread. We should all be proud of our military service and respectful of other's service. The comment about “most guys that do twenty years never fight” should not be taken offensively. It is just an overstatement of the obvious. Because of the much greater number of support positions in the military, most will never see direct combat regardless of whether they serve 18 months or 30+ years. My username is exactly what I did in the US Army for 24+ years. Most that served in the units I served in did participate in direct combat actions regardless of how many years they served. Getting a BS story about someone's SF/Ranger unit career seems to be a common occurrence nowadays. It used to anger me, and I would let them know about it. I don't waste my time now; I just give them a sad and disappointed look before walking away. Be proud of what you did and respect others for their service.

Yessir, agreed. It takes all of us- across every service, MOS, and even every generation, to accomplish our mission and preserve the Republic. flag salute
