a round peg into a square hole


I am an Army Veteran. Airborne Infantry. A mortar man. I was neither in Iraq nor Afghanistan. I joined in 1987 and, after OSUT, was stationed in Alaska at Ft Richardson. I met my wife there and was married on 29 Dec 1990, the day that was also both my birthday and my wife’s birthday. Our daughter was born at Ft Bragg, NC the following fall and a year later our son was born in Germany, while was assigned to a leg unit. He was born 2 1/2 month premature and spent three months in a German hospital in NICU. The Army would not allow him into an Army hospital.

reoccurring Navy dream


I did an enlistment in the Navy and was stationed in Yokosuka, Japan. If anyone knows about this area they know that all the ships are apart of FDNF. Anywho, I've been home for almost 3 years now and I keep having these dreams that I'm back in Japan and on the same ship. But as i'm walking around, I realize its in real time. In the middle of the dream I always wake up breathing hard as if it was a nightmare I just had. I wish I could understand why I keep having these dreams and if its actually a sign of PTSD.... Please help me understand fellow vets

The Evolution of Warfare


Came across a couple of facts, somewhat startling.

In WWII, the average infantryman faced 10 days of combat a year.

In Vietnam, it was 240 days. Anyone know what it averages in Iraq and Afghanistan? I think this goes a LONG way to explaining why Vietnam veterans had more problems than WWII veterans had.

Also Vietnam was the first war where they measured victory NOT by territory gained, but by body count. Au Drang was considered a great victory because we killed 12 of theirs for every one of ours we lost.
