I’d like to throw my hat in for this one please. Just a Cold War Veteran from the 101st Airborne 1/327th Infantry Regt. 11B and 11C M224 60mm mortar gunner. Had the pleasure of training in Panama Jungle Operations Training Center a little before the conflict. The barracks there at Ft Sherman can be seen in the background in the James Bond film Quantum Of Solace during the boat chase scenes.



Grandfather awarded the Bronze Star as enlisted Airborne Armored Infantry around the Ardennes.



His two brothers also fought there and one is buried in Luxembourg at the National Cemetary.



Two uncles served in Vietnam, one Navy and one Infantry (also 11C). Four additional uncles are Veterans. My father served four years in Kosovo as CIVPOL with Dyncorp.
Thanks for the opportunity.

12131,

Thanks for doing another very generous karma, and good luck to all.

I retired from the USAF after 20 years (and I still work for the DoD as a civilian going on 12 years now...) My Dad, Mom, and sister all served in the Air Force, though none stayed past 8 years. My brother served 2 years in the Army. My Great Uncle George also served in the Army in WWII. My father-in-law served in the Navy during WWII.

Thanks for this chance!


Regards From Sunny Tucson,

This is awesome, thank you. I'll rely on my son for this one. He's in the Air Force, stationed in Kansas but has served in Alaska, Hawaii and Qatar. He's currently a jet mechanic but has applied to the Pararescue training program. Very proud of him.

Served as part of the PA Army National Guard with Blackjack Troop, 1/104 Cavalry. Best part of my service as after my security mission to Kuwait, they trained my unit on the M3A2 ODS/SA Cavalry Fighting Vehicle. Two year training that culminated with a two week live fire qualification course. There’s nothing cooler than getting to shoot a 25mm chain gun from a stabilized platform.

I would like to be considered for this awesome karma. I was in the Navy from 89-94. In fact every member of my family has served. Both of my Grandfathers served in World War II. My father did 26 years in the Air Force including a stint in Vietnam and my brother was Army. Thanks for this wonderful opportunity.

Please count me in, I'm coming up on 16 years of active service in the Army. I come from a long line of military service and plan on serving for at least another 7 or 8 years more.

Thanks so much for the chance at your generous karma and good luck to all.
