    Did a look but haven't found a thread where we pool all our goods into a single thread, so figured now was a good time to start.

    When did you serve? What locations? What Branch? No ones required to share this info if they don't want to.


    For myself, I enlisted into the AF DEP in July of 2001, and went AD in Feb 2002 as a Weather Forecaster. I've spent about a year or more at Keesler AFB Mississippi, Manas AB Kyrgyzstan, Shaw AFB South Carolina, Misawa AFB Japan, and Scott AFB Illinois. Planning on going the full 20.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Since I know we have one guy here from Ft. Hood, I thought I would ask if any of you remember an old Korean (Army) and Vietnam (Air Force) War helicopter pilot in a wheelchair who used to work as a greeter at a Ft Hood commissary or PX.

    That was my uncle, and we loved him a lot.

    Enlisted Reserves in the Army..active duty 56-58....F.A. surveyor instructor. Turned down OCS, radar school and golf teaching offers because extending my time was a no no. Spent most of my time in Germany 7th Army. The top General sent down word that I was to pull no duty and play golf for 6 weeks prior to the All Army Golf Tounament in Berlin. He wined and dined this PFC after placing 3rd in the European command tourney.

    My Dad's WW1 diary is here, and my notes are here. Nothing spectacular.......but proud to have served nevertheless.

    The rest are here...
    Benjamin, Sr., Benjamin, Jr., Lemuel, William and Benjamin Edgar are my connections with our great nation and some of the wars that we have fought. In all, the Cruzan family has shared a long and interesting history in these United States. We are in-laws to President Ulysses S Grant and have competed with Alexander Graham Bell for the first successful telephone. We've served our nation in military and civilian capacities. And we have our black sheep as well. A military deserter and two outlaws, one of which is buried along with the Hole-in-the-wall gang in Arizona.

    But most of all, I'm proud of our military tradition.

    These records have been compiled from the records of the National Archives, the St. Louis Record Center and from family members. Unfortunately, over the years, many government records have been lost. First when the British sacked and burned Washington during the War of 1812 and later when a fire spread through the St. Louis Records Center destroying many of the records from World Wars I and II and the Korean conflict.

    Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.
