This has been posted on the general board before so I thought I'd be darksider specific and ask who of you are vets ? When, what and where did you serve?

I was on a Titan II I.C.B.M. launch crew http://www.titan2icbm.org/ from 73-77.

One of our mottos was "we deliver in 30 minutes or less or your next one is free" !!:shock:

Thanks to all of you who served our country.

Served 2 years and 7 months in US Army from Nov. 1966 to July 1969.
Served 15 months at Can Tho Army Air Field, South Vietnam in the Mekong Delta with the 244th Aviation Company from April 1968 to July 1969. 2 months as Crew Chief on Mohawk OV-1 fixed wing aircraft. Flew 13 months on an Otter U-1A fixed wing aircraft as a Crew Chief. Got to go to Australia on two 7 day R&R's and loved it.
This is a good thread. Ya never know.....maybe someone I served with will read this and we will be able to reconnect after all these years!
