    Are you still in active service? Bother of my brothers were Marines. I had a GT rating of 120 and almost made Officers Candidate school, till they saw the damage in my neck. I was so let down!!!! My older brother was in Vietnam during the TET offensive and got wounded severely then.

    I love the M40 A3, just wish he would do a 1:1 version.

    I was going to do sniper training in the army but failed my hearing test and they denied me, should of listened when I was younger and turned down my rock musicsign1

    Sometimes, I feel very guilty for not serving. I did get the Spinal Cord injury making bulkheads for Blackhawk helicopters, so that should count for something?

    Zathros, I'm retired Mil and I'll give you points for that as I have spent many a day against a Black Hawk bulkhead (and my grandmother worked for many many years at Sikorsky on the admin side).

    Thanks!! I got hurt really bad there. Life altering injuries that will end when I do. God is good though, and I ended up being a Mr. Mom. Hardest job I ever had (have!). My father died when I turned 5 so I genuinely had a reverse 2nd childhood with my son, and we play and play, and still do! :)
