I'm curious as to what thread I'd attach a military service story.

Default most memorable moment.

As lame as it sounds, my most memorable moment happened during new year Y2K.

I was a Submariner serving aboard the USS Michigan SSBN 727(G). As the clock struck midnight for the big Y2K scare, we were out to sea. I was literally driving the boat(at the helm station) with an Odouls in one hand and a cigar between my fingers in the other. Boat was doing 3kts to nowhere at 300feet below the surface.

Not to exciting, but memorable none the same...

Was there a good traditional rhyming first log entry for the new year?

Just over 18 years in, AD Army. Spent most of that time depolying as a working dog handler looking for things that go boom, but now I'm a physical security inspector.

Rhyming, I don't think so, but I do recall the first pager taking two pages to bring in the new century.. Nothing like having your name etched in history....

Hi, I served in the Navy from 84-88. Spent some time on all the west coast aircraft carriers. The weirdest thing I saw was (from a distance) Tom Cruise playing volleyball while filming Top Gun

WOW. I've been on this forum for several months, and never noticed this section.

10yr. Infantry Veteran here. Spent 38 months in Iraq with the 101st ABN DIV.. 2-327 to be exact. Very proud of my accomplishments. Was medically retired in 2012 for injuries sustained on my first combat tour. Middle of the night mortar attack that broke two vertebra in my back. Didn't have the quit in me so I pushed it for 8 more years, and two more combat tours. Finally couldn't take it any longer, and gave up! Miss it a lot. Everyday I wish I had pushed harder, and stayed in.

Just wanted to say hey to the rest of my brothers, and sisters. Hope all is well.

Be safe.
