What military service are you/were you a member of?

Corey just posted up a Marine thread and it just got me thinking. We have tons of members here that are or were a part of a military service, so I am curious to know who was in what.

I'll start - US Army. This is a public poll!


Please vote in the poll above so we can get an accurate count!

Damn, how old are you?

I was on the airfield like 10 klicks away. All that shit is closed now. A complete ghosttown. Sad, actually.
