AMEN to the military spouse!!! My wife is the best ever. We have been together 8 wonderful years now, I am on my 3rd deployment since we got together and has not complained one time. She does it all when I am gone, I owe her big time.  :D

AMEN to the military spouse is right! I read the Navy Wife poem at the podium of my retirement ceremony last year onboard the USS Midway and it was so difficult for me to read because I broke down in tears after watching my wife crying so much, it was a very touching moment and this was something I had read over and over many times to myself prior with no problem. The military spouses endure so much while we are away, sometimes I believed she had it more tougher than I did.

I will add my Amen to the wife as well.  We're coming up on 30 years together and 3 kids.  She almost single-handedly raised the first two while I was off seeing the world (TDY's to various places).  I once saw a cartoon of a military man coming home to his wife and kids.  The kid looked up at Mom and said "Mommy, who is that strange man?"  That was me for the first few years of our marriage.  And she is still with me.  That says a lot!

Yes, I have seen and heard that saying. It takes a special woman to endure the job and stress of being a "Navy Wife"!

I put 29 years in the USAF but got out as I did not wish to make a career out of it.  I had 80% good and 20% bad.  Civilian job...70% good, 30% bad.  The AF was very good to me.  I was an enlisted airborne radio operator on a cargo plane during the Korean War/conflict/police action....The guys shooting at me called it a war....

Went to college on the GI Bill, got a commission and went back in.  Did Viet Nam. That was a war. I got to see much of the world.  I loved the AF, but was offered a job with Sony Corp. and worked for them fourteen years and the AF wanted me to go back to Korea for a one year tour. (wife stays home) She said NO!, been there, done that.  ha ha  Loved Sony.

Thanks to all for serving our wonderful country.

Quillback SS-424 (a WW II era sub fondly called a Pigboat) and, no, they don't let you chose
Interior communications as IC2 (SS) which is E-5
'65 - '69

My first dive on Quillback, coming out of drydock, went straight down, except for the time we were on our side... going straight down. And then, we did the same thing six more times while trying to find the problem. Seems the Captain thought the qualified guys (1/3 of us were not) could think better while standing on their heads. We survived, and I grew up a whole bunch that day. A few short years later it dawned on me that I was one of the most qualified guys on that sub. I grew up a Whole Bunch that day too.

WOW! Thanks to all the veterans and spouses and children. I grew up in a USAF family. Dad did 31 yrs, WWII, Korea and VietNam. He actually went in as Army Air Corp. I went thru Officers training (USAF), served four years, married a wonderful guy while on active duty, he served (USAF) 1966-1993, enlisted/officer....been married 30 yrs..met the right guy!
No matter where we go, if we meet a military retiree/veteran, its almost an instant connection.
Safe travels and thank you, again, for your years of service.

I just found this thread.

Chief Warrant Officer (CW2) Flew H Model Hueys for two tours when I was a kid of 19.  I was with the 7th Armored Squadron of the 1st Cav in the Delta.  I do have lots of stories and they get better every time I tell them.  Oh yes almost forgot RA 68025253 I think...lol.

Not only should we welcome vets to join in but all of us need to say "thank you for your service to our Nation"!  As camping weather approaches here in the north east I would like to take this opportunity to invite all you veterans to enjoy our annual airshow in Geneseo, NY.  We hold an annual airshow of restored vintage aircraft in mid-July.  I am in charge of rv camping on the grounds during the airshow. Our forte is aircraft from WWII and WWI.  We generally have more than ten-thousand admissions to the show which, this year will be held July 13th and 14th.  You will enjoy two full days of continual action in the sky over the Genesee Valley.  Veterans from all branches of service are more than welcome and are called up as a group to be honored.  Vets and civilians alike will have a good time.  Reenactors will be bivouacked on the grounds and there are plenty of food vendors as well as military souvenir vendors on the grounds.  Campers are limited to self-contained rvs. No tenting. For more information go to: www.1941hag.org.  I think you will enjoy seeing the progress being made on restoring our old warbirds.  The hangars are open for tours every weekend as well as the 40's museum.  We have been listed as being among the best ten airshows in the Country.  Our warbirds are available for close up inspection on the grounds during the airshow and the pilots love to talk about their 'babies'.  God bless you all and hope to see you at the show this year.
