I was a seal- on a secret team, a sniper- in a unit that doesn't exist, and a ranger. I was in for several years and went several places. I can't tell you anymore. It's all classified.

No. Seriously folks, I'm here all week- try the veal

I was in '88-'94 Navy San Diego for 2.5 years of training, FFG-58 for the rest.
Took a sailing tour of the Persian gulf in '91. E-4 Honorable discharge

Default Who Is Or Was In The Military?

HELLO ALL RON L HERE = SERESURPLUS


24, years, Navy, Retired as a Chief Petty Officer /E-7- (Though we never called it that) I did various duty, mostly on Destroyers, Cruisers and a few shore and Oversea's duty! Was primarly in Sonar and Torpedo's and did a lot of other weapons related duty! Was part of a SSET (Ship Security Evaluation Teams) Boarded and searched a lot of ships going in and out of iraq aftet the 91 Gulf war and got out in early 98! Had a few tours oversea's at embassy duty and was thier when Iran took it's plunge into chaos! A few stories to tell there!



Mostly, I was simply a Sailor, never a Seal, or an EOD guy, did have a lot of thier training and we did teach a few courses in Survival, mostly to Pilots and a few others selected!

Question for you military people......

We were discussing the issue of military people being thanked for their service on another forum. One of the guys said that his nephew hated it when people thanked him for his service. His words were: "I hate that crap!"

How do you feel about it, and what would you say is the best way that someone can show their gratitude for the sacrifice that you're making?
