Several.
Wondering who all is currently or has served.

Make a post and tell what branch and any other info you'd like to share. I'll go first.

US Army. Nuclear, biological & chemical grunt.

Served at Ft. Drum, NY (the frozen chosen); the Panama Canal Zone (welcome to the jungle); and Westpoint Military Academy (future intelligence duty).

Did just shy of 25 years in the Marine Corps as an admin guy and retired as a Chief Warrant Officer 4. Stationed mostly on the east coast and Asia. Started and ended my service at Parris Island and luckily landed a federal job there. I had lots of good and some bad times, but have no regrets. Thank you all for your service to our country!

1973 Q Code Mach 1. I am the second owner.
Did 4 years in the Navy as a structural mechanic on EA-6B's. Made 2 Med Cruises on the USS Einsenhower. One in 1988 and one in 1990 and spent a little time in Desert Storm in the Red Sea. My duty station was NAS Whidbey Island, Washington. My ship was out of Norfolk, Va. Had a great time and wouldn't trade my experiences for anything.
