Glad you joined our group.  Please come in and introduce yourself.  Tell us what branch and for how long.  Lets support each other and those who still serve.

I want all to know I am a huge supporter of military families.  I know my family suffered while I was in.  I know they sacrificed tons for me to be able to do my job.  So I want to make sure we include family members as well

Thank you

Today's piece, the barnyard PT:

This was shot at the barn from the movie Days of Thunder. Happens to be just a couple of miles from me.  Should do another shot, this was taken with an older camera and before I polished out my headlights and foglights.  Ho hum, still a nice photo...

Hmm...was her name Rhonda by any chance?  I started my own business at 14, was a total geek, but making money as a kid.  Started dating the girl three doors down, she even carried my books to class. I was one of the most well-known people in a fiveA high school, because I was a private DJ and played at most kids parties, especially sweet 16's.  Really enjoyed being with my neighbor three doors down, but didn't really know her all that well.  Here I was, an 18 year old virgin, probably the last in the state of Texas at that age.  My mother and father (retired AF Col.) kept banging me on the head with the same statement, "you go sleeping with a girl and you're gonna get her pregnant, then you'll have to marry her!".  OMG somewhere inside I was scared to death of girls as I'd heard this all my life.  And what happened???

The girl three doors down and I hooked up in the back of her '76 Pinto, which happened to have Firestone 500 radials on it.  The Good Lord was trying to tell me something and I was too stupid to get it - exploding car on exploding tires, dude, stay out!  But, too late, and yes, she got pregnant. 

So, Feb 14th (which I now call "Satan's Daughter's Day"), we got married, while I was in between assignments. Drove to Tucson, reported in to Davis-Monthan AFB, the 83rd TCF.  On Feb 28th, I was in Saudi Arabia, on project Elf One, VOLUNTARILY!  Now you answer this question - how evil does a woman have to be to chase a man to the desert, and not any desert, but one where there are no women and drinking isn't allowed????

So, I know for a fact I'm going to Heaven, because I've already done my time in Hell, being married to Satan's Daughter.  And since only the good die young, I have a feeling I might live to about 250 years old...snicker...

I know what you are saying there.  I made it out as an E-5 SSgt.  Mine problem was my ex wife.  She would get me in more trouble.  For an example, It was a long day we waited for about 3 hrs at the dentist.  Our 6 mo old was crying and cranky.  They finally called me.  I no sooner sat in the chair for the exam when a Buff pilot came in.  He was a Major.  Guess who had to vacate the dental chair?  Yep Me a lonely E2.  My ex became furious and literly went in and started pulling the Major out of the chair by his flt uniform.  The base police were called.  She was causing a huge scene and I lot a stripe.  That was just one example.  She cause a lot more problems.  Then she has the balls to say she "deserves" part of my retirement money.  So, I never retired (Yet I did make it over 23 years.) to show her just who is boss.   LOL

I loved being in the military too, but wasn't a conformist and while I got en as an E3 because I had some college, I was an E5 three times, still got out as an E3.  Yes, was really a childish turd, drank too much and loved to fight.  Also being part of a FACP, we were in every desert, mountain, jungle, swamp, any place that was extremely difficult to live in it seemed we went there.  Over time, you get sort of a "we can do anything we want" mentality, if you're an immature kid like I was. Lots of lessons learned, and to tell you the truth, not sure I would change it if I were to do it over again, simply because my life today is based on all of those lessons learned. 

You know you are really into your unit when you get a unit patch tattoo as big as this:

50 years old and covered in tattoos that tell the story of my life, many of them military related.

Thank you for your wonderful pics and your input Chromenut!!  It is a pleasure to start a group for all the military and their families.  I miss being active!!  I honestly hate being a civilian.  It sucks!!

Lastly, Pappy, thank you for starting this group. I currently have 5 family members serving here, Afghanistan, Japan, and a couple other places.  I'll get their info and post here, always moving around and sometimes it's hard to keep up with them.
