Most other RV forums have a specific section for military.

Pearl Harbor day seems like a good time to see who out here has a military background.

So, if you please, reply with your branch and current status:

For myself, I'm a Navy veteran and retired Navy DoD

Hubby is retired Navy and retired Navy DoD

Together we have over 70 years of military service.

Retired USN here and you're right there could be some benefit and draw to have a forum for Veterans and especially Retirees and maybe even the disabled category. Might need a couple of sub forums since Veterans and Retiree discussions and even disabled veterans can be very different since the priviledges are vastly different ... i.e. base and facilities access, medical and drug sources, etc. Even merchant discounts like Lowe's/HD I think need an ID (not sure if a DD214 would be accepted or a Veteran's ID). However some are the same like the Verizon wireless discount which is Veteran based. Another is the whole issue of VA medical and the Veteran's ID which I know anything about and don't really care personally. Of course then throw in the DOD civilian end like for use of FamKamps, etc. and things really get diverse and unique.

I'm a son of a career Navy aviator, carriers in the Pacific, he retired (early 60's) as a Commander.

Four fractures in my leg as a Freshman in college, kept the Air Force (or any other service) from accepting me.

I'm also the parent of a Combat Engineer, he is in a mechanized unit, part of 1st Cav Division at Ft. Hood.

I'm humbled and grateful for all who serve. Thank you.
