Default I love hauling Military equipent

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 ...........

Military man?

I know we Airmen do things a little different.

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...

All I could think is , when an Iraqi or a Afghani sees that **** coming at them , they have to be scared ...........

Jeez, dude.

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

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.

I love hearing taps at 2200. It's very soothing. But retreat at 1630 is pretty cool also. I'm always proud when my kids stop playing to pay their respects to the flag. It's an awsome sight.

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 b****ing 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.

I don't think Rock Chalk was b****ing about the military in this thread....he was b****ing about Spider's propensity for starting numerous threads covering the minute details of his existence.

I liked it, except when my ghetto ass neighbors downstairs would drown it out.
