I Have a Family Member In the Military and I'm Proud of It

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 158 People

    Been there. Iraq, first gulf war.

    Memories are far off. I know I made a difference. I was in Special Ops and flew missions into the theatre that weren't posted on CNN or any media. Proud of those who are serving today.
