My Grandfather, 1 Great-Uncle, Father, Step-Father, 2 Uncles, 1 Brother, and 1 Brother-in-law have all served our country.
I served in the USAF for 8 years on active duty from 1992-2000.
I started out as an Air Traffic Controller, and finished my career as a Visual Information Journeyman (I did computer graphics and IT support).
I made it to the rank of Senior Airman (E-4). Twice (long story). hehehe
I have one Honorable Discharge, and one General Discharge Under Honorable Conditions.
I was stationed in TX, MS and CO. Never got the chance to go overseas or to the sandbox (even though I volunteered many times).
I have lost a total of 4 friends in Iraq and Afghanistan; one of them a high school classmate I've known my whole life.
I am very proud of my service, but am glad I got out when I did; however I would go back in in a heartbeat if they called and said "We need you!".
The Veterans Administration classifies me as a Disabled Gulf War Veteran, and I have a 20% disability rating for a service connected disability.
I was qualified on the M16, M4, M9, M60, and the M203 grenade launcher, and in other things, but I never saw any type of combat; I flew a desk for the most part. I was a "Chairborne Ranger".
