Hi everyone. I've been lurking for awhile now, and finally decided to join. I must say I've learned alot reading some of the threads here, and enjoy the different opinions. I'm a Christian, but I don't try to force my beliefs on anyone, or disrespect theirs. I love my Country, and am very proud of all of our Military. My son just completed his 4 yrs of active duty with the Marines, and has 4 yrs. IRR left. I've read some negative remarks about the Military on here, but that takes nothing away from my son's service or anyone else's. A big "Thank You" to all the active, former, and retired Military on this board. Looking forward to "meeting" you all.
