    Who on this forum is a vet?
    I think we need to take a minute and recognize everyone on this forum who is a vet. So, if you are a vet, what branch of the military did you serve and for how many years?

    You deserve a very heartfelt thank you for your service.

    I'm a Vietnam veteran. I served in the United States Army Security Agency from 1966 to 1970. I held a Top Secret (Crypto) security clearance. I was in the Army a total of 4 1/2 years.

    Like most males at that time - I was drafted.

    Cool
    I wasn't drafted, just was made an offer I couldn't refuse . . .

    Naval Reserve (1956) gave me E-3 with no time limit to E-4 on the condition I would become a radioman. (I had a ham license that qualified me)

    I served a year in High School, a year in college, almost three years active duty, and a couple of years in Reserves after.

    Thank you both for your service. I work with a couple of great Vietnam vets at the day job.
