    6 May 1992 I started my Enlistment - Initial Entry for Training.

    Where Life has taken me:
    Age 19

    6 May - 9 July: Fort Sill OK

    10 July - 24 Aug: Fort Bliss TX
    [​IMG]
    16 Sep 92 - Mar 95 - Wackernheim Germany
    [​IMG]
    Apr 95-May 97 - Seattle, WA (WA Army Nat Guard)
    [​IMG]
    May 97-July 97 - Fort Jackson, SC

    July 97-July 98 - Waegwon, South Korea (Camp Carroll)
    [​IMG]
    July 98-June 00 - Fort Lewis, WA

    Because of that Ft Lewis gig, I found the job I currently hold as a Army Civilian Employee...

    I'm not 'great' now - but I shudder to think of who I would be if I hadn't obeyed my calling to enlist.

    I'd thank God and stuff and junk...but it'd come across as cliche...Suffice it to say, I've been blessed beyond deserving the past 14 years..

    :)

    It is truly something to be proud of...service to your country is the ultimate sacrifice...
    A Thank you from me for your time and efforts...
    My Dad was an Army man and then a Navy man....my brother a Marine...
    I have a bit of understanding when it comes to military life and it's not easy...

    Your wife's veil looks VERY similar to mine.


    Thank you (again) for your service, Darin... from me and my children.

    You kinda looked like AJ Soprano when you were younger. Your dad's not in "waste management", is he?
