These guys are just flat out bad ass , I was walking to the PX here at Camp Dona Anna ( near white sands) and saw a convoy of armed humvees ,I was just in awe , Paid a little tribute to the soldiers in each humvee , the gunners looked so young , I get into the px here , great place ........... Oh and lesson learned for sure , never ,ever under any circumstances ask a military man if something is in walking distance , these bad asses march 20 miles a day before noon , of course everything is in walking distance .........
Ft McCoy was another great place ...........

By the way , you get a nice secure feeling staying on base , I havent been to a base yet , they havent let me park and spend the night .........
Nothing makes you prouder then seeing our military ..........These are some damn fine men and women ...........

I know we Airmen do things a little different.

"Sure, it's in walking distance (a mile at best), but we rather pay a $2.30 cab ride!"

That sort of how I felt when I used to live in Fountain near Fort Carson. they'd be doing artillery (I think) and that would shake my windows, but I didn't care. Not only did I think it was cool, but I'm glad they're doing exercises like that routinely. Then there was the stint I lived near Buckley AFB. Usually quiet, but at 10pm every night you can hear "Taps" being played...

I swear to god... I tell this to every single person I come across when the topic arises: nothing we can possibly do can equate to the service of the men in uniform. I don't care who you are, if you've worn a military uniform, you've been through some ****.

Jim Webb's GI Bill was a nice start.

As for the hardware, well I'm a little partial to Aircraft Carriers, Amphibious Assault Vehicles and M-16's myself, lol :D

Did you retire? IRR gave me commissary, PX, gym, and auto shop privileges at Buckley. I don't really use it because I'm across town, and the officers always give me **** when I'm on base because I have a beard now.

I still gas up at the base gas station and use the Navy Federal there, though. Even though I think it's ironic that the US Military buys most of its fuel from Hugo Chavez.

No, I was a dependant. My dad is USMC. Currently he is in Afghanistan between Kabul and Jalalabad as an advisor to the Afghani army. My younger brothers joined the Marines, one has a year left in the reserves, the other has 2 years left on active duty, hes in Socal now. Had my own military ID so I could use the PX and Commissary. And gas on base was always cheaper than anywhere else. I grew up at Quantico and Camp LeJeune.

This is the exact reason people are leaving the Mane for other places (people like you and your attitude).....listen douchebag, without these service men and women we would not have the freedom to sit in our undewear eating cheetos and bitching about whether or not the grass is too green at training camp.

Shut up and pay some respects and take your crabby ass back to the end of the line.

My grandfather ran the PX at Quantico for many years. My pop was born there and was a VMI grad and a 32-year man in the Corps. I grew up on MCRD, Pearl Harbor and Pendleton. Great memories, great people. Not too many people get to see just how amazing these men really are on a daily basis.

whats worst is a stupid thread about what I am hauling gets more action then the one I started about getting on the bone marrow registry and saving lives. If you want to show appreciation for your country without joining the military, or being a trucker, then you can put your marrow on the registry and maybe save a life.

Check out the sticky thread of it. More people care about themselves around here then anything else just like real life.

So yeah its fine to say how much you love the boys in the military but talk is cheap and worthless to them in a ditch in Iraq dodging a bomb.

So I adopt a troop, send him things like cd's, ipods, magazines, batteries, letters from my music student kids telling how great they are.

So instead of just talking so much, how about some action people!!!!!

If we like the troops so much maybe we could do an adpot a troop for the whole mane.

with all of us pitching in even just 1 dollar a week we could buy him so cool stuff and maybe make afghanistan a little more comfy for him. You would be shocked to find out how many of our boys don't have dads like Spider out hustling for his kids. They joined up because they had nothing, and the marines are there family, we can show those ones how much we care by adopting them so they get letters and care packages just like the ones whose families can't wait for them to return.

Well? how about start a thread on something like that once in awhile? It's not all about you baby!!!!!!

goes for most charities really. It's the sort of work where people tell you a lot how great it is, but then walk away and you see no change in them. They are still selfish.

Or people like me who throw money at it but probably wouldn't be giving his time like some people I know. A girl friend of mine in Mexico last weekend building homes for poor people. Umm yeah that takes some heart. Sure she is religious, and its through that church that many of you feel does no good, but she is there nonetheless.

We can all do better, and have to do better, if the country is going to be what we want it to. Look at all the broke govts we have. They can't fix everything. At some point Americans have to get back to the frontier spirit where we didn't count on the govt for everything.

Govts let us down, but the people can not be stopped.

Orangemane should adpot a troop. It would be a good thing for the site.

Agreed. Whats funny is the guys overseas dont want the Ipod or anything expensive. They want magazines and books and letters and a 6 pack of soda.

Talk about a study in frustration; doomed to failure before it even begins (the effort... or even a desire... to control what topics other posters choose to start threads about). Odds of success are far higher when one worries about one's own posts and lets others mind theirs....
