Default Your Military Service

Give an accounting, what ever you want to say, of your service.
Your rate, your rank, some telling stories of your service.

As usual with my threads, I'll go 1st.

after college, became a reservist officer in the navy.
My 1st deployment was to the fleet in the Med.
What a cesspool. Made me appreciate the U.S.
My 2nd deployment was to the North Atlantic.
Chasing Soviet boomers down the Red Routes.
Next, we were scheduled to go into drydock for a refit.
During a tasking, we got orders to replace a damaged sister ship.
Spent 3 months at sea playing NATO games in the Caribbean.
Next was the South Atlantic, chasing boomers to the Horn and the Cape.
Along with junk freighters and Soviet surface ships running to Africa.
Next deployment was back in the Med. I hate Naples!
Then we finally went to the dry docks, for a major refit.
that's when my Captain and Admiral came to me to re-up.
I demanded they take me off the reservist list and make me active.
Of course, they couldn't do that. All officers must go through the boards.
So, a few months later I was out.

12F: Combat Engineer, tracked vehicle crewman
So I was a crewman, but we had to maintain our own vehicles, too.
M728 CEV and M9 ACE were the vehicles I was assigned to. Could operate an AVLB, but was never assigned to one.

My first station after switching to 91B was the 44th Engrs in Korea, wasn't too bad a unit, but I had a patient that had been hit with a buffer while he was in the shower and then bitten. Worse than grunts.
