I went through the emotions. I wanted to go something bad, felt quilty that I was not there, still know too many people who are over there. My wife and family would have divorced me though. Mom called shortly after and told me not to even think about it I had served my time.

When I head about 9/11, I was ready to quit my job and join back up. Unfortunatley my brain and doctor told me that it wouldn't be a good idea with the injuries I sustained the first time around. Like many of you said, I miss the comraderie and sense of purpose the Military gave me.

She did that during Bosina! ;f Well pretty much. My Lt. called the house on Christmas Eve and asked if I would volunteer to go to Bosnia. Don't think I've ever seen her so mad ;g when I said yes.

I wish I could get back into the Corps.

I bet I could show the pups a few "veteran moves" with a mortar too!

i was in the navy at the time,as a matter a fact i was on watch in the engine room of an aircraft carrier,and did not find out about what happened until 3 hours afterwards.and my first thought was they better not pull my retirement,and i have not looked back since.i would not trade my time in the military for anything, i did my time. to ask me if i would go back in now for any reason ,i say hell no!!
i will fight any war i need to right here in my own town,but i will not go to the armpit of the universe for anyone..
dont get me wrong ,i am proud of my service and my country,but this is just how i feel..

I called my local recruiter after 9/11 but was told due to my age and hypertension it was a no go.
