Default Any Vets (young and old) post your picture ?

From 19 to 90, I was thinking it would be cool to see the Military Vets in uniform.

Its been a few years (like 25) since I wore it every day and about 100 lbs ago, but I had some great times.

If you didnt serve, lets see your dad or grandpa !

My grandpa, Cpl. Pereira, and his cousin, Ssgt. Bordelon. They were the same age, both marines, his cousin was KIA at Tarawa. My grandpa was a marksman, wounded at Tinian. I couldn't find my dad's picture yet. Thanks to all for your service! .

I never served. Nixon was getting us out of Vietnam when I graduated HS in 1973. Here is a pic of my Dad who served in WWII. 36th division, Cannon company and also received the Purple Heart. RIP my father. He taught me everything I know about hunting and fishing. Died in 1987 at 66 years old.

Maybe it was due to the lack of digital cameras, but the only uniform photo I ever took was the basic training group shot and my ID.

That's me on the right, fresh out of AIT around 1993. We had a photographer come by the base and take pictures for us. He had a Drill Seargent hat for a prop so I got to channel my inner R. Lee Ermy for a few minutes

This one was from a long time ago. Stationed at Ramstein, assigned to a training squadron that taught rapid runway repair and bare base operations. Just before being deployed for Desert Shield/Desert Storm.

Small world, I was at Ramstein 90-92 except for some long TDYs further south. They had a magical Burger King that could cure hangovers.
