    If there was a national crisis, would you be willing to get the old uniform out and sign up again?

    I know some may say, due to my health and/or age, I would not be qualified.

    Well lets put that aside for the purpose of this discussion

    After leaving active duty in '77, I served two years in the Navy Reserve a nice part time job in Bible College), then I served two years in the Air National Guard and two in the Army Guard (the last State side during the First Gulf War).

    In the event of a national emergency I could take over somebody's desk thus freeing them up for a more important job. I am way past mandatory retirement age and my health is not all that great, but I would do what I could to support the cause of liberty. :)

    Of course, I would be willing to go back.

    If I'm able to be of service, yes.

    If the Army told me they'd let me back in tomorrow, I'd meet the recruiter tonight. I'm sick of being a civilian. Unfortunately, the doctors don't see it the way I do.
