    Thanx for the reminder, Mom. And many thanx to those who served, are serving and will serve. To anyone considering enlisting, the years I served were the most interesting years of my life, don't miss the opportunity. It's really a life changing experience.

    The best years of my adult life were the twenty five years I served in the Army.

    Growing up I had very little exposure to the service except for what I saw on tv.

    Then I found my birth family.

    My father was career Navy. My mother was a Marine. I had one half-brother in the Navy (Desert Storm era) and one who discovered he had a hole in his heart when he took the physical to join the Air Force.

    I had a grandfather in the Army and an uncle in the Air Force.

    In an instant, I discovered I was surrounded by veterans. To say that I developed new understandings would be an understatement.

    ...and now I work for the Department of the Air Force.

    It's brought a whole new understanding to me and I'm grateful for that.

    djlong - that is a pretty impressive military family! I'm glad you found your family and that you are proud of them. It sounds like the genetics passed their way down to you as well -working for the Air Force. :righton:
