I was curious....how many of us are ex or active military? And what branch, when and what did you do? I was in the Navy from 96-00, in San Diego stationed with VS-41 and VS-29 as a plane captain and AT(Aviation Electronics Tech.). I made a deployment on the USS Carl Vinson for operations Southern Watch and Desert Fox. Anyone care to share?
