    I served in the Air Force

    for two years. Now I know the people who defend us and can't say I'm not proud of them.

    The Troops Not the Governments

    war is a result of failure of governments , we went to war in iraq without any real exit strategy and poor intelligence , and once again our troops and their families are paying the price . their courage and loyalty  has been abused .

    These days there are plenty of wartime experiences to go around for an entire generation of people that I don't know. My own military experience was at the cutting edge of every unit one could imagine being in combat, but it was 1977 to 1988 and unless you were in the particular...

    How could I not support the military?

    Being a member of the Illinois Air National Guard and not supporting the military is a bit absurd. I will continue to support the military and what they do for us even after my career is over.

    Who is interested in joining the military?

    I'm located in Denver,Colorado but can answer just about any questions you ask. "I'm a Navy Recruiter". I posted this because I've been getting a lot of questions about joining and someone asked me to post. So people can ask questions.

    I haven't been in the military.

    Not because I didn't want to, not that the recruiters that came to my high school didn't try, but because I had brain surgery for a tumor when I was 15 and the military wouldn't take me. I appreciate and support all that our troops do. I wish I could do more.
