tired, or just lazy
Please add me.
I feel like "Beetle Bailey" in our family. I made it to Spec 4 in the National Guard in the early sixties. My brother retired a staff sergeant, his youngest is presently a major. My sister had two boys graduate from the Air Force Academy, one married an Academy grad and has a daughter presently in the Academy, another son, a retired naval officer.

USMC 1991-1999. This one would be cool since it was born while I was serving.

Please include me.
I did not serve. Dad was a signalman in the Navy, serving on a troop transport ship in the Pacific. His ship was heavily used in the battle of Okinawa.
My uncle was part of the Normandy landings, second wave IIRC. He never talked much about it. My aunt said his experience was pretty gruesome and he just wanted to let it pass.

Please include me for my Father. He was drafted into the Army during Vietnam and was an M60 gunner. It would go directly to him.
Thankfully he was able to get out in one piece to be a loving husband to my mother and father to me and my brothers.
Though I have never served, the discipline that he picked up from the military was passed to his children and made us the successes that we are today.

Very generous karma! There are many worthy veterans and servicemembers that deserve Receiving your karma. Though Not in the military service, I have served my country. Congratulations to the eventual winner and thank you for your service!

Wow Q, another P228! Please count me in. I served, as did my Dad, Uncles, niece, nephew, son-in-law, and others back to the Revolutionary War.

I've never served, but my grandfather and both of his brothers served in WWII. I'd actually love to win this for a customer of mine who is a Vietnam vet.

Served US Navy 2009-2015 USS Kearsarge (LHD 3) - Fire Controlman with also Gunner's Mate/Master-at-Arms duties assigned. Was ship's armorer for 3 of my 5 years including qualifying on the M11 since small arms instructors were still required to teach it. Definitely the most fun I had on a range day!
I wish I had gone the same route as my brother who has 13.5 years in the Navy as of now. Would you please throw my name in the hat for my brother? Thank you to all that have served or are currently serving, and to Q for offering such a generous karma.
Wow, that's incredibly generous.
US Army vet, Combat Engineer, '96-'00. Went back as a contractor after 9/11, '03-'05 with DynCorp.
Third continuous generation of my family to serve, with WW2, Korea, and "Cold War" conflict all represented.
So very generous. Please count me in.
20+ years USAF and Texas Air National Guard retired. Mobile Communications (Secure Comm).
And I am a Honorary Crewmember of the USS Enterprise CVN-65, courtesy of my brother who got me on a "Tiger Cruise".

Very nice karma. Please add my name.
I was honored to serve in the USMC from 1986 to 1994 doing my dream “job.” I was fortunate enough to fly the AV-8B Harrier in the “Fleet” and finished my last two years as an Advanced Strike flight instructor flying the TA-4 Skyhawk. LOTS of stories - too many to go into now. But a couple of pics from back in the day:
1. Right after my final flight
2. A “selfie” before they were popular (yes, the picture is upright as you can see from earth and sky reflected in visor)
Icarus flew too close to the sun, but at least he flew.
That is a beautiful pistol.
If it is acceptable, I would like to put my name in on my father's behalf.
He was drafted in 1969 and did a tour in Vietnam with 1st ID. After his tour was up he went back to NYC and realized that A) he didn’t like the woman he had married before shipping out and B) he'd rather be back in the jungle than live with her in NJ so he re-enlisted and asked to be sent back to Vietnam (only to be sent to Germany instead). He did another twenty years in the army including assignments with the 101st Division and 18th Airborne Corps and retired in 1992.
I just paid for his concealed carry permit and have been trying to figure out what to do about a carry gun for him.

Thank you, Q. Lots of family members have served. I remember dressing up in my dads uniform as a kid and loved the hat.
USMC Reserves 77-83 . I would love to be considered for a P228, but I am sure there are many more deserving. My grampa was a bugler in WW1 and I had three uncles in WW2 or Korea.
Thank you to all those who serve
