    It's all that Air Force weapons training you had. We're they still using muzzle loaders or had they moved up to the J.C. Higgins .22s by then? :laugh:

    Since I was in avionics for the C-130H, I'm not quite sure to what level they had advanced by the time I retired in 2005.

    Tell you what.....I'll see what those AC-130 dudes have to say about this matter. :tongue3:

    I was in the Air Force from 1965-1972. I thought about making it a career and wish I had. I regret getting out when I did. I had 2 years, 10 months and two days in when they let me reenlist. I did it to get the reenlistment bonus so that I could go home (from England) to get married. That was a big mistake.

    My second hitch started the day I reenlisted, and that gave 6 years, 10 months and two days when I got stupid and got out. It was the only time in my life that I liked my job. It was just the people over me I didn't like (especially one supervisor I got in England and again in Virginia. I was afraid of getting him again somewhere else since I was moved often--so I got out. I got the dumb idea that civilian life would be better. Seven years as a civilian again, and I realized how wrong I was. At least I liked my Air Force job and hated my civilian job.

    Army -1969 - 1974

    Maybe bragging: 3 generations fought in US wars. My grandfather in the Navy during WW 1; Father in Navy in WW 2, Uncle in the Army in Korea and me in Vietnam... The joke in my family is that we couldn't get along with anyone. :BangHead:

    I have never served in the military, but if I can get my weight within military standards (190 LBS), I will plan on joining the Army & try making a career out of it. I've still got 170 LBS to go before I reach my goal. In 20 years time, I will be right for retirement.

    That is assuming our new president doesn't "change" the age limits to what they were when Clinton was president. During that time 26 was the oldest you could be & still join. During Bush's time in office the maximum age was bumped up to 40 years old.
