    I see a lot of posts from obviously military-affiliated members to others not so obvious, but subtle, like posting times of 2030 hours instead of 8:30 PM. Just curious how many members are vets, active duty, guard, reserve, etc.

    Where ya been, what ya done? Q-view from a far-away land would be golden!

    Man I miss those days. But I've got a family now and wouldn't want to leave them behind while I went underway again. It takes a stronger person than me.
