Greetings,
I have, of late, found myself wandering how many actual military veterans play on a daily basis.
If you are a vet:

I will start it off. USAF Ramstein AB Germany


1) What branch and what was your last duty station?
2) What are your thoughts of starting a group for Vets?

Just curious.

I believe there already is a Vet group somewhere, or there used to be.

Anyway, US Army, Fort Hood.

You Air Force guys have more ludicrous job titles than the Navy does.

Had a crunchy (Army) guy once tell me that "Master At Arms" (Navy lingo for Cop) sounded like something out of Call of Duty. Expected no less out of those weirdos. At least they don't eat crayons like Marines do.

My job before "MA" was "FC" (Fire Controlman, MK86 GFCS Tech) which also confused people. "So you fight fires?"

"No, I start them... kaboom"

Hmm. And here I always thought 'Pilot' was a lot more to the point than 'Naval Aviator.'

Army, last duty station was Ft. Hood, but I was only there for around 3 1/2 months, sandwiched around a year in Iraq. 4 years total active duty, the largest part in Germany (mostly Darmstadt, a few months in WAAF).

Ha ! Never thought of it that way.....lol. Does the word massacre or stomp mean anything to you'all..........wow.....I've seen some real "stomps" then and was the real "stomper" more than a bizzalion times.......holy crap that's funny.....I apologise to anyone who was at the NTC from 1987 - 1988 and especially for the AAR's where you were called a "noob" for being an idiot and told to "get GuD"........I've got to pass this on to the crew that use to play MWO and have left......we were the stompers and....oh how ironic....and, now we are the noobs and should "get GuD".........oh my.
