    It was obvious who was who. The other guy never posts without reminding us about his "28 years in the Army"

    28 years in the Army is a long, long time.
    It can make you feel real sad and worn out! :flag:

    I served for 24 years myself. Then I started a second career that lasted 23 more years. I was anything but worn out when I finished my Army service. But when I fully retired at age 70, I must admit that I was tired of the full time work grind. I still don't feel sad or worn out, for whatever that is worth. I'm involved in the world enough to care a great deal about who replaces Ginsburg.

    I only served in the US Army for 6. And would have gone for at least 20, except for my spouse, who despised the military life.

    Still, the years are wonderful to me and certainly among my proudest moments.

    Thank you for all those years of service, Vito.

    "Thank you for all those years of service, Vito."

    I appreciate the thanks. Personally, other than the one year I spent in Vietnam I thoroughly enjoyed all the years of my service. And even that year in Vietnam had its positive points. I was a commissioned officer in the Regular Army. Life as an officer is far different than what many face in enlisted status. I felt I was a small cog in a big wheel, but a very important wheel that was crucial to the safety and well being of our nation. I was proud to be able to be a part of that effort. And the Army was good to me. Not only did I never have what I would call a bad assignment, the Army sent me to graduate school for a Master's Degree and paid me my regular pay and benefits while a student. The pension and health care benefits that I receive in retired status is close to priceless in its value to me. But the Army is a young man's (and woman's) game, so at 47 I was already an old man by Army standards and it was time to leave. Had there been some way that I could have served until I would really retire I would have done so.

    Ummmm, no. I enlisted in the Army as an E1 was an E5 before I was commissioned as an Officer. Five years as enlisted and 23 years as on Officer. Your point was?

    Dude,
    I’m an international transplant so I never served, anywhere.
    I don’t think it is cool to disparage anyone’s service regardless of their rank. It takes all levels for the machine to run efficiently.

    Depends on the particular job. Finance clerk or Infantry. Two different worlds.

    Very true. I was a Medic. There was stress. I had the type A personality to handle it.

    ** Breaking News **

    The Associated Press has just confirmed that former Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, has agreed to be the recipient of a brain transplant to receive the brain of recently deceased RBG. Doctors familiar with the situation also confirmed that top surgeons declined to perform this risky procedure because they felt Pierre Delecto was simply too close of a match in ideology to make this worthwhile.

    Is she still dead? Just check to make sure. I don't trust the news as much anymore.

    You're missing the beginning Quote tag bracket. Like this -

    Then, 28 años, had zero quote tag at the beginning when quoting you.
