Thank you, I'm not wanting to mislead anyone. My service was not near as long as I had planned. After I had been serving in artillery, I had new orders cut to send me to Germany for advanced training. It was then the decision was made that my time was up. I had planned to retire at the beginning, but plans get changed.Welcome from Oklahoma Southbuck . Thank you for your long service and hate hearing about your medical conditions . Saying a prayer for you . Good bunch here on TFF . Plenty of smart guys to help and a bit of fun thrown in to .
