My dad served in the Air Force in Korea and my brother was in the Marines at the end of Veitnam. My time would have been in the mid 80's and truthfully was to busy partying and scamming on the streets with my friends and it never crossed my mind. Recruiters never knocked on my door I guess cause I got into trouble alot in school.
I will forever respect our inlisted and after it was to late when we went into "Desert Storm" it really bothered me that I was to selfish to serve my country and it still bugs me to this day. All I can do now is always say thanks to a service man or woman when I meet one.
Thanks to all who have served or are currently serving for the duty you've given.
