Not a veteran or a current service member, but I just want to thank everybody who has served, is currently serving, or will be serving in the future. Stay safe out there.

Thanks for all who currently serve or has in the past. Combat or no combat. I might be lookin to join but we will see. Might not be a great fit for me after all but I might be interested. You never know until you do it. But thanks to all who have served either way.

Click the buttons, that's right, click the buttons...

I served with combat vets and sought their advice, I had nurses from Nam as instructors, some of my best friends are combat vets, activated for DESERT STORM and trained to go to Bosnia-Herzegovina, but I narrowly avoided going. When they sent my guard folks to Travis we all went down the hall and signed up for overseas assignment. They laughed at us.

I'm not in the military myself, but that may change in the future. Almost everyone in my family has been in it at one point or another, and many of them have seen combat.

:) No, I am sorry. But... Нет проблем, tovarisch mycrofft.

I am from Bosnia and I have 4 years of combat experience ('91-'95)... I was in some special police and military units until I end with front line medics... Was wounded 3 times gaining even more experiences with soft tissue wounds and bone injuries. ;)

NepoZnati, all my "Russian" I learned from Tom Clancy & Martin Cruz-Smith

You must have some insights we can gain from!

In fact, the more diverse points of view we read the less provincial we can hopefully become.

Clancy? Good stuff!

Thank you, mycrofft. I will try to contribute how much I can, and to answer any question one can have... :blush: Maybe for start I can use this opportunity to give my THANKS to the brave firefighters who volunteer to come and bring us supplies and even gave they hand in fighting fires in Sarajevo, during the war!? That was amazing!!

I am always amazed at the folks in war zones who continue to press on helping others, sometimes under fire, with so little.
(And amazed day to day how little we get done with so much).
