    Four & 1/2 years active duty Coast Guard [very fond memories of that time] and 17 & 1/2 years active duty in the Marine Corps [even have some fond memories of that life-frame]. Retired at 22 yrs service as a Gunnery Sergeant (E-7) - I had reached my shelf-life expiration date according to USMC. Happy Memorial Day to all service members. Hoo-Rah!!

    I did about 10 years as a reactor operator for the Navy. I kind of miss it but the job I have now is sort of like it without all the hazing
