Just curious how many of us were or are in the military, and where have you been and of course lets see pics!!!

I did for VERY uneventful and boreing years in the USMC even if I reinlisted I COULD NOT get a job change so I got out and went and joined the Foreign Legion and loved it!!! I wound up spending 10 years in it. Here are some pics from Central Africa and Ex Yugoslavia I spent about 3.5 years in those 2 places and was in several other places where we weren't allowed to take cameras and weren't supposed to be!

This is a check point in 92 at the Sarajevo airport.

This is Filipovichi, Just a check pont where our job was to keep the Bosnians and Serbs seperated.

This is Bangui Central Africa I'm the one holding the .50 cent Mocaf beer! We were there to put down rebellions where ever they might pop up!

Im (medically) retired from the 29th ID(L), 1/116. Been Infantry all my military life. The above are my best training pix, Ft.Irwin CA. My first 6 years was in the line, that first 4 I was a 60 gunner, then a 203 gunner. My last 10 years I was in HHC Support Plt., transportation, ammunition, fuel, etc, but we still stayed in the bush with the grunts, just a different grid. :)

Now, Im a "Drill Sgt" at the juiv. detention center, I just moved up after almost 3 years of being a "corrections officer" on the pre-disposition pods. :thumbup (Im waring my 3 color desert BDUs as I write this).

I've seen most of the Air Force cops carrying the M-4 here but thats about it. Looks like a much better choice if you stand around for hours on end, it looks much lighter.
