    32 Years ago today I was one of the luckiest people on the planet. While acting as aircrew in the Marine Corps on a CH-46 helicopter we lifted off at 0430am from the USS Guam, somewhere off the coast of Turkey. Before dawn, this happened and it changed my perspective in life as a young 21 year old. Appreciate what you have and don't let anything get in the way of living your life. I walked away with a cut on my a$s and a really sore back.

    I think you may have also suffered head injuries.

    Fantastic

    I have been around the military most of my life.

    Dad did 30 in the Navy

    Me 4 in the Air Force

    The service is not a walk in the park. Most people are dedicated to it.
    And yes people do die, even when not at war.


    Glad you got out, and you seem to have done a lot in 32 years!!!

    Way to go, keep on enjoying life!!

    Look at the scar on your ass and thank your Higher Power that you can still look at it.

    You are very patriotic and most people don't even bother to vote.
