    Who served their county's military?

    Name your country, your branch and your rate (job and rank), you land lubbers!


    US Navy from '94-2000; Boatswain's Mate and Photographer's Mate (SW/AW)

    Sound off!

    Mod Note- This is not the place for politics, this is a thread for veterans or active duty sherdoggers to share ideas, experiences and/or offer assistance. It will be heavily guarded for trolling.

    I personally want to thank all you guys who served or are currently serving.

    I hope none of us get put on a watchlist since we're apparently the biggest domestic terror threat per the lovely Janet Napolitano.

    Unless you're on a ship, I'm guessing you're repairing Marines?

    I'm in the middle of the application process for the Canadian Forces. Applied NCM Infantry, hope to be posted to the RCR. Career counsellor told me I blew the aptitude test test out of the water, so I will likely be high on the competition list.

    Not really, I was only there for a few months doing training with the Marines. I spent most of my time there at the smaller camp. I think it was Camp Johnson or Jackson. It was about 14 years ago.
