Just wondering how many Army guys we have on here. I spent 17 years and was medically retired due to injuries sustained. Over the years I worked on 58D's, 60's, flight ops, medic and wheel mech.

11B here. Also disabled. Blew out my knee in "training". Went back to work, then was medically discharged because I couldn't hang with the big dogs anymore.
