    Current Military or Veterans?

    It has been a while since we did this but do we have any current military or veterans on the forum.

    Army
    Navy
    Air Force
    Marines
    Coastguard
    State Guard (aka State Defense Forces)

    *OR*

    USAF-Civil Air Patrol
    Coast Guard Auxiliary

    Perhaps you could tell us a little about yourself.

    I was in the Canadian Mobile Command Reserve. And I bet you have no idea what I am talking about. Well maybe North might.

    Currently Active Duty Navy....will be 18 years in August. I'm a Recruiting Supervisor looking forward to retirement (from the Navy anyway) in two years. That's the reason my education is on the fast track now.

    Hi North,

    I recently celebrated 20 years of Navy active duty.

    Besides being April Fool's day, today is also the birthday of the United States Navy Chief Petty Officer.


    "On April 1, 1893, two important steps were taken. First, the grade of Chief Petty Officer was established; secondly, most enlisted men received a pay raise."

    Charles, thanks to you, I just shocked and amazed my wife with the CPO tidbit. Mrs. Lloyd, who served in the Navy from 1980 to 2000, and retired as a HMC (SW), did not know this. So we'll see if I earned valuable marriage points, or anything.

    I enlisted in the Air Force in 1977. I left in 1980 to enter the AF Reserve for two years. Selected for Officer Training School (after becoming a staff sergeant), I was commissioned in 1983. I retired as a captain in 1996 (at age 36) and have been collecting retirement pay ever since.

    Were you called meatheads or is that just a Canadian thing. I don't think I ever actually heard the term MP used. Just wondering.

    MPs didn't hand out speeding tickets, we got reported to our commanding officer, who as a reserve colonel, didn't take much interest.
