    So, I've been in the Army for six years. I've loved every minute of it. On several occasions I've had people come up to me and thank me for my service....even got hugged while in uniform. On one such occasion I was waiting in line at a Hallmark.....Mother's Day card in hand. A...

    My War In a Nutshell

    I find it rather ironic that I was more nervous about going to Basic than I was going to war.  I understand there there were certain issues governing each individual departure--for example, when I was leaving for Basic, it would be the longest and farthest I had ever...

    I spent 2 1/2 years in the Army

    as a 19D. I was stationed at Ft. Benning GA. Kelly Hill. HHC 1/30th 3rd Inf Brigade. I enjoyed serving as wish I would have been able to stay in. I was Medically discharged in 1998. I still miss Army life more than anything in the world.

    About Me

    British armoured cavalry. One of those snooty regiments, hundreds of years old (older than the USA by 100 years). Heavy tanks (or MBT's as we called them).  Managed 9 years in total before deciding to try life as a civvy again.  Wish I'd stayed in now.
