Just want to say thanks for all that served. What a special RAK! very meaning, thanks! - RapunzalK  196.7 #2034 8:58PM
You say almost done, but it never really leaves you. Went in at 17 (yes, my mom had to sign), and stayed in 11 years. Been out 19 years, and the Army is still there. Just became a part of my nature. Thanks for serving.enjoy being a civilian. - Sugarbuzz  242.6 #1449 9:25PM
yeah, been in the service for 4yrs and 5 months right now. i have a 5yrs contract, and i still can't decide if i should re-enlist. There are a lot of factors to consider (mostly it is medical stuff). - otilegna  2679.9 #48 9:57PM
I wish I had an answer. Somedays, I wish I would have stayed in, others I'm glad I'm out. My Army job didn't convert to civilian world, so I had to go to school. Kind of hard. I love my job now, but it wasn't easy. It was hard to get acclimated to living with "non" military. Missed the camaraderie that military has. "We" understand. I had to learn how to fit in. There is no right or wrong choice. Consequences, good and bad, for staying in and getting out. Just be sure of the choice, and you still will look back and wonder if you made the right one. Somehow, it all works out. - Sugarbuzz  242.6 #1449 10:16PM
Thank you @Sugarbuzz for the knowledge/counsel/advice :) (i want to become a CM when i turn to civilian world, it is fun to work at Disney, i guess). - otilegna  2679.9 #48 10:24PM

Ah, thanks guys. We are a proud military family. It is really an honor for us to have served. So many people have their ways of serving. Police, fire, rescue, RN, teachers, Social workers, and on. I think it is the combination of all our desires to serve that really make us a great place to live. Despite our differences, we somehow manage to care for others. - Sugarbuzz  242.6 #1449 9:20PM
