When I got out of school Jimmy Carter was President so there was no way I would serve under him.

I was at The Ohio State University when the war started. George W. Bush was president. I immediately withdrew from the university and enlisted.

Not active, but I spent 6 years as the wife of an Navy enlisted man. Had my second daughter entirely alone, no husband or family around since we’d been relocated and he was at sea. It’s hard holding down the fort too.

Back then, I couldn’t grow a real mustaches :laughing: Definitely was a late bloomer went it came to facial hair.

Nowadays, I put the razor away this time of year and let the beard & mustache grow wild for the winter.

kind of confused over the high number of Non-US Military, considering that I believe I am the only Non-US member and served in a non-US military ( just an assumption and may not totally reflect reality).

@srdiver What branch? I can’t tell from the picture, plus I’m not as up to speed on my NATO allies as I should be.
