From one veteran to another...

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to start a thread that will serve as a focal point for the forum to acknowledge the service of all of the veterans here and thank them for their service to this country. I would also like to say to a certain population within the larger veteran community: "Welcome Home" and thanks for your service & sacrifice! It would be very interesting to see where everyone did duty, when, and which branch you served with. Pictures would be a nice add.

 

For me 4 years in the USAF 68 -72. A year in Vietnam (Bien Hoa) a bit less than three years @ Andrews AFB then out. Seems like a long, long, time ago...Thank you all for your service!

Thanks for posting this. Was in 1St MAW at Phi Bai (Hue City nearby), tad to Chu Lie for a few weeks doing air sea rescue and spent mote of my time in country at Marble Mountain. Flew as a "door" gunner on the CH-46 and got to see most all of I-Corps (as well as a quiet visit into Laos.) Lonnnng time ago, but still remember it like yesterday.

Thanks for your post, Semper Fi.

Navy  62-66 Vietnam  did 2 West Pac tours aboard USS Ranger. Second tour was during Vietnam in the gulf of Tonkin. My grand kids ask me if I was in the military and I tell them I was in the old Navy when the ships were wood and the men were steel!  Salute to all that have served.

I'll add to this thread a "thanks" to all the warriors that served our country before our time. In my case it was to Reg. Sargent Major O.L. Winfield of the 80TH Div.  Blue Ridge Division / 318th  My grandfather. Job well done "Old Top" from 100 years later.
