Nothing to feel guilty about shadecorp, in fact, just the opposite. You served your country honorably and that's something to always be proud of. It's treating our veterans with less than respect that people should feel guilty about!!!!GOD bless the Troops.

I served my three years in the army in the Cold War era.
9-57 - 9-60

And one Friend spent several years as a P O W
Those are the ones
and the folks serving today are the ones to be Thanked.
