Will do Mike J. I know the Mass site is slow about now..everyone hunkering down for the rest of winter...My brother and I cannot wait to get to the coast..he has hunted every inch of the central part of the state...he lives right on the ware river, and if the corn field behind his house fluds....bring some extra shells!!!!!!! I will be coming up again this October for my annual opening week barage...I will be posting from time t time, keeping busy training Shotgun Shelly, my golden. take care and start gearing up for fishing season. briggsy

Me personally I'm a member of the Arkansas Army National Guard. I am a 13B (Cannon Crew Member...155mm Paladin) I have been in for 6yrs and just re-enlisted for another 6. I am currently finishing up my first tour to Iraq. It's been one hell of an experience and i can't say that i'm sad to see it come to an end! Missing 2 duck seasons is just about more than i can handle:)

Thank you to all of you who have gone before me and served this great land...And thanks to those who are currently serving or plan on serving.

Spent 4 years in the Navy, myself. Sonar tech on board USS David R. Ray. Miss all that stuff once in awhile. But life is better for me on this side now. Don't know if I could stand missing a hunting season. :yes:

I was in the Navy for ten years. Active duty for five and reserve for 5. In active duty I was a boiler Tech/machinest mate 3rd class(sw/aw). I was one of the last boiler techs before we were merged with the flange heads. In the reserves i was a builder 2nd class(scws). I Loved being in the military. And may go back in. Have to convince the wife tho.

Well I spent 10 years in the ARNG here in Minnesota as a 31F which is a telecom networker and switchboard operator.

I've been around the states both being trained and training PVt to Generals...It was a blast. Was also a shooting instructor for awhile as well.

I spent 10 1/2 years as a flying crew chief on C-17's in the AF, 8 1/2 AD and 2 reserve. I got off active to go to school, GEAUX TIGERS!! Spent the last 2 years in the reserves in Biloxi, Ms on the Hurricane Hunters. I have 2 years left and it depends on what kind of job I get after grad school, whether I stay in or not.
