One thing we always like when traveling are the great people we have met in CG's we stayed...many were ex-military.  I think it would be nice for the veterans of this forum to identify yourself.

Thank you for your service.

Bill,

Thanks for your service. US Navy 1960-1964, Electronics Technician,E-5,  All Destroyers. WestPac cruise '62/'63.

I just met a gentleman at Yellowstone last week. He was a River Rat in Viet Nam. I thanked him for his service and he told me nobody said that when he returned. Had a nice chat with him. I'm sure he has a lot of tales to tell that would make many shutter. God Bless all who have served our country proudly!!!
