I keep seeing lots of former and current service members. Now I'm wondering what the ratio is.

This is by no means a scientific poll, just getting a WAG.

There are three types of people. Sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs. I will be a sheepdog.

Do not fire unless fired upon. But if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.

There's a few of us here, Sheepdog is another, Bush IIRC as well.

I was in before they blended the 2 fields, Security and Law Enforcement into one, Security Forces. That makes sense to me as the LE types were supposed to supplement us Security types, and their lack of training showed, especially during ORI's and ABGD exercises. Having everybody on the same page, with the same training makes a whole lot more sense.

Do not fire unless fired upon. But if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.
