And the Marines are run through the Navy. There have been many more Guardsmen who have served honorably than not. Especially when you consider Iraq deployments. Nice job and great rant.

My first meeting with the big boss here at DON included a talk about the distinct difference between "Navy" and "The Navy". "The Navy" includes Marines, "Navy" does not.

Here's my two cents worth:

Active duty Air Force - Security Policeman/Ramp Rat - 1974 - 1985
ANG - Security Police/Security Forces - 1985 - 1994
AF Reserves - Security Forces/Combat Arms - 1994 - 2005
Gray Retired - 2005

I've been a few places over the years.

Still miss being in uniform guess that's why I haven't retired from CBP yet.
