    You R legit, don't matter if U were AD, AR or NG, or US (draftee) if U did 30 days and got a DD214/honorable discharge, U R a Vet, so cancel your honarary membership! My fave 'missions' were training U folks (our Division's round-out BDE) during your 30 days active. "Put up the GP-Medium troops!" "Don't bother SFC/E7 M, we parked the RV's over by the BBQ pit" Was like 30 days leave for us active-duty brain-washed types.

    We all leave our rank behind us when our time is done in the military, it really only counts for more retirement pay if U hit 20-30 years and even that is not cash that lets U live very well off. But with (almost) every trip to the V.A. I find some jack-off who is barking out orders at patients and staff like he or she is still the Sergeant-Major or a 2-star Division Commander they used to be when they were active. I treat all Vets as equals (Comrades in Arms) as they served when SO many others ducked or chose the easy paths of life and have no concept what we gave up so they could safely live out their years in normal lives doing the things few of us ever managed, like staying put for a decade/or 2 and making good neighborly friends or buying a home, not renting one every 3 years, climb as high as they wanted/could manage and did what they wanted with their lives, not what others decided to do with the only shot at life or death or the wounds or bugs we got that they seldom woried about. For them an alert was a broken washer, for us a call in the night to "pack-it-up and roll" to go meet some very real hostiles who wanted us dead. 3 years or 30 in gave most Vets more life experiences than any civilian stuck in an boring office-job would get in 10 lifetimes! Keep the medals they mean nothng now, a genuine 'Thanks' is worth a Medal of Honor from those who have an idea of what we went thru as a cook or as a Airborne Ranger! I salute you all!

    Exclamation MSgt, USAF, Retired

    I retired as a MSgt with over twenty years service. I was unfortunately medically retired due to a back injury or I would still be in now.

    MSgt, USAF, Retired also

    I retired as a MSgt E7 with 22 years and 22 days under my belt. My first four years I was an aircraft machinist then I cross trained into Combat Arms Training and Maintenance (CATM) and spent 18 years doing that.

    Retired SMSgt, Air Force with 27+ years mainly in aircraft maintenance. Was in the jungles, deserts and a few places in between. It's always good to see a place where veterans issues can be discussed.
