    I am active duty military serving my country overseas until May. I sure am looking forward to seeing some trees and not sand, getting the TT unwinterized and getting back to spending time with the wife and kids in the good old USA outdoors. :D

    God bless you and all in service, past, present, and future - police and firemen also.

    Cougar: May is not far away and you'll be home before you know it. As a former Vietnam Vet, I fully understand your desire to return to a normal life. Thanks so much for the sacrifices you've made....and Happy Camping.

    Welcome back HOME! May is not far away now. You all have done a great job to keep the peace and our enemy's at bay. Most all on this board have been in some form of service over the past years. We all know the pain to serve and be away from our home. Great job, enjoy your RV life.

    Thank you all, It is nice to be able to hear from you. Being over here makes me more proud to serve my country, and with that protecting the people of our nation.
    THANKS AGAIN! B)

    God speed to you guy, and stay safe until you are home with your family.
    It has been fifty years since I was in the Navy, and thank God for our troops and guys like you every day that this is still the home of the brave and land of the free.

    (for now)

    I’m recently retired after 34 years in the military. I’ve spent time in every sand box in SWA. When I see someone touching a tree or bending down to feel green grass, I figure that individual is probably a service member who has not seen either for a year.

    I speak from first hand experience when I say this: For those who may not have served in the military, please know that our service members would do the job regardless of your support because they volunteered for the duty. But the fact that you admirably and publicly do - to include recognizing their sacrifices - makes them stand proud to serve this great country and us.

    Cougar> So you are telling us that your first RV trip won’t be to a "sandy" beach? :D
