I hear you on the camaraderie part. I also miss the missions. Granted mentally I still think I’m 20 and hoah and then my body reminds me in 38 years old. If your ever around South Georgia look me up for a place to crash.Yeah, I did that on purpose. Some people don't get the humor, but I knew someone would find it funny - morbid but funny.
I was intel. Went to DLI in Monterrey CA, Good Fellow AFB TX, 4 1/2 years in Augsburg FRG, then 2 years back at Good Fellow as an AIT instructor. While in FRG, my unit (701st MI BDE) worked to monitor the guys east of us. I flew a couple of times with the 2nd Cav along the east/west border. Those guys were always on alert. Lots of respect for the Cav. All in all, my Army time was a good experience. I left in 1991 and have missed it (mostly the comaraderie) ever since.
