Just thought that this type of group may be able to help us somewhere along the line and also there could be a mag stationed closer to you then you think
I am no longer active duty but was enlisted in the Coast Guard (EM3).
Granted it's not the Deparment of Defense but it was still service to the our great Country's home front.
I was also born and raised an Army Brat.
My father spent 27 years in the Army and had tours of duty in both Vietnam and Korea's DMZ.
I have lived in many places that include Germany, Okinawa, Alaska, and at least 8-10 different US States.
