    My tractor is blue, but not an LS. 39 years ending last September. Retired as a CW5 working as an inspector for National Guard Bureau. Miss it, but the retirement check eases the pain alot.

    USN 5/68-2/72 early out after 3 years, 8 months, 12 days.
    3 years at Inshore Undersea Warfare Group One, US Naval Station, Long Beach, CA. Then got transferred to
    USS Firm MSO 444 home port pier 9 Long Beach, one day travel time and no travel pay, bummer. My longest time
    at sea was a whopping 9 days aboard the Firm.

    Engineman 3rd Class at time of discharge, made 2nd class but didn't have enough time left to receive it.
    I would have had to extend enlistment to get it and there was noway I was going to do that.
    3y 8m 12d was enough for that farm boy at the time.

    USAF Active Duty POL 7 years, Reserve and ANG 13. Last 3 years as a technician with the ANG. Loved it. Now enjoying my second career as an 8th grade Social Studies teacher. I think the Air Force might have been safer...

    ...and not enough time to get everything I want to get done.

    It looks like there are at least five of us that served in the Coast Guard. I served four years (1965-1969) and made it to E6 (Quartermaster). I think Scoutcub is ex-Coast Guard.
