2002-2006, USMC and loved it. Was an embassy guard for most of it and had some amazing experiences!

4 years Air Force. Loved it, and would do it again if I wasn't fat now. :)

I did 5 years US Army MP, 15 months Iraq and 12 months Afghanistan. Got off active duty a month ago. No regrets other than the shrapnel in my ass when I am at the airport, lol.

I spent 5 years in the US Navy Seabees. Been deployed to Spain, Guam, Okinawa, Kuwait, Afghanistan, and Japan. Can't say that I enjoed every minute of it but I definately would do it again. In fact I'll probably go back in once I finish with my undergraduate degree.

I spent 7 years in the Air Force(73-80) and then did 20 years in the Army(82-02). I had a variety of career assignments. I would not trade it for anything. My back was broken in Nov99 and 5 operations later I was retired. If not for the injury I would still be in. The military gave me a feeling of belonging to something real I have never found in the civilian world. Good luck Stephen with West Point!

I'm soon to be a West Point cadet, starting a week from today. I'm really looking forward to the opportunities available at USMA, and I intend to give my all in service to my country. God bless my fellow brothers in arms!

Todd McFarland replied to Christopher Everet's discussion How do you handle just being friends with your crush?
"The answer is simple. If you haven't already, make your feelings for her clear.  You don't want to walk away without knowing for sure that you are in the friend zone. If she puts you in the friend zone, forget about her and move on.…"

Todd McFarland replied to George Corbul's discussion How does one become a 'real' man exactly?
"Agreed that women's ideas vary widely, which means there are women for who like whatever type of man you want to be.   Don't let any woman define what a real man is for you.  That's ass-backwards."

"What? It was light hearted. I don't think I can learn how to read people's minds and tell if their dad is the coach of the team. But thank you. Maybe they aren't that helpful."
