    First off thank everyone for the service. I have enjoyed looking through the post and seeing who is a veteran.

    I just want to point out that just because the younger generation on this forum chose not to go into the military doesn't mean we are sitting around playing xbox. It just means we chose a different career path.

    USAF 1989-2009. Medically retired after 20 years and 5 days of service (AF did me well and let me stay as long as possible to get my full DoD pension). Assignments with Strategic Air Command (going toe-to-toe with the Ruskies), Air Force Special Operations Command, several Joint assignments with the Army at Fort Carson, Washington DC. Glorified intelligence officer who supported the war fighters as best I could. Now I work at JBLM as a civil servant. Took a long break between military retirement and coming back to the GS, but had to do it. I'm really excited about hunting on JBLM (new arrival) ... just got my disabled vet Washington vet license and looking to break it in. Medically retired because I got hurt, not wounded. Not a war hero.

    Maybe we could duck hunt on post together, all you need is coffee, gun, shells, and permits as required. Send me a PM next fall?
