    Me and you went in the same time. I entered Active Duty 21 Aug 1984.

    Ahhhhhh, the Cold War years were the best - we just didn't know it.

    Congrats to you....I still have 5 more years to go. The last 5 went by quick as I'm sure the next 5 will go quicker. I need to work my retirement assingment here in a couple of years.

    Actually in my case the last five was like being in a time warp. The closer I got the slower it went.

    Congrats on 20, I lost my lower leg (it is what it is) and get to be retired too.
    Have a great time and enjoy it.
