Yes, United States Marine Corps 2001-2003. It's only half of my enlistment because my recruiter forgot to secure a waiver for my past Ritalin useage (a misdiagnosis I might add) and when I went in for a physical one day, I mentioned the useage in response to a questionnaire and because of some wierd policy was honorably discharged about two weeks later.

I hate that recruiter.

I have never been in the military and I don't imagine I ever will be.

Yep, Army MP from October 1975 to July, 1979, then reserves to 95. Did tours in Korea and two years at the Presidio of San Francisco, which was one sweet place to live in the late 70s. Then hooked up with SFPD after that before back to the midwest.

I don't think I would ever join voluntarily. I was too young for the Viet Nam era draft and I was too old for the current selective service registration. I believe that there are only a few years of people who fall into this crack, people who have never registered in any way for selective service.

God bless the men of 2nd Bn, 127th Inf, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army Nat'l Guard...good luck, and come home soon.

Yep'er. 1992-1998: 3IU (unit level communications repair), 2nd Battalion, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Infantry Brigade, Wisconsin Army National Guard. (That's our unit crest you see to your left as my avatar.)

I used to maintain radio, intercom, and field telephone systems in M113A2 and M113A3 armored personnel carriers, and HMMWV's, too (Hummers to you civilians.) :-)

Stuff like this...

(RT-524 Army FM radio in a vehicular config. This sucker's 61 pounds.)

...and this.

(Junction box for M113A3's intercom system)

Split time between battalion HQ in Appleton, motor pools in Green Bay, Oshkosh and Fond du Lac, and Annual Training at Fort McCoy.

Basic @ Fort Jackson, Columbia, SC (go watch Danny DeVito's Renaissance Man...other than changing the fort's name, that's where I did boot camp: from the post HQ to the water tower to the confidence course, it's the real deal I was actually at in '93); AIT at Fort Gordon, Augusta, GA.

My old unit just arrived in Iraq...kick terrorist ass and come home soon, boys.

I haven't served, apart from a brief stint in the KISS Army.

I'm by no means opposed to serving my country in some degree, but I'd make a lousy soldier.

My old man enlisted after high school and ended up a radar tech in South Korea. The day he shipped out was the day his draft card arrived telling him basically to go to Vietnam and get shot at.

He's told me some stories about old army buddies and NCO club antics and refers to the whole thing as a thrilling and unforgettable time that he wouldn't wish on anyone.

No. Unless they ever re-enstated the draft and forced me to go (kicking and screaming) then I never will.

I seriously have all the respect in the world for people who serve in the military, because I know that it is something that I would NOT be able to handle.

Yes. US Army from 1988 to 1991. My term was extended due to Operation Desert Storm. I arrived in Saudi Arabia 3 days before my term was up. I spent my 21st birthday standing on top of a bunker in the middle of Saudi Arabia. PARTYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

The closest I got to the military was the NJROTC. My father served in the Army-Air Corps and OSS from the late 40s to late 50s though.

I'm proud to say that I'll be rejoining the Canadian Armed Forces Reserves next year.

It'll be interesting: I'm not the same man I was when I was first involved (when I was 20) but it'll be interesting to find out.

US Army 97-00. I was a Cavalry scout with the 1st Cav, Ft Hood, TX. Other than seven months in Bosnia, one NTC rotation and basic training I spent my entire time in Texas.
Had fun though.
