I've come to learn over the years, those who like to talk about their big time service to the country, really didn't do Jack Shit most the time....Maybe a Good Cook or Laundry Boy at best......
I served, I'm proud, thats about it... ;)
Go look up my service ribbons,
guatemala , columbia.....You can even find them on the net I bet!!!!!!!
However, they still served their Country.
Soldiers, Airmen, and Marines need to eat and need clothes.
For me, I am very proud I served and would do it again.
Being a Soldier defines me as a person.
A lot of everyday situations make me refer back to my training.
As far as my deployments, I was only deployed once.
That was to Panama to ship all the Cuban refugees out of there back to Gitmo.
I was 20 and it was my first time out of the Country.
I did not see combat, it was quiet during my 5 years.
There are other accomplishments that I achieved being an Infantry Medic that do not even need to be mentioned.
Just glad I could give a little something back to this great Nation.
