      Jimi That's fantastic. I don't mind the solo thing; I'm usually more at ease that way. It was the circumstances that interested me. Leaving relationships and starting a new school. Just didn't expect that this far into the game

      sequax I have found my life mate 26 years and still have yet to have a serious argument!!
      flying solo is a way of life more most of us brats, however there will come a time when one will find solid long term friends.

      Sargesbrat One is a whole number. We are used to both. Either way is not bad. Being with the right person is better but, being with the wrong one is far worse than being alone. Peace and joy.

      Sargesbrat You will learn the correct question is not where we are from but, where we have been.
    • bnoss
      bnoss where are you from where have you been!? doesn't really matter the question was simple and up for interpretation if you wanted to share you military history i'd listen just want to tell me where you live currently that's fine too. so much for trying to be friendly!

      Roberta I am sorry, but I have o differ. Where you from and were your where stationed not the same thing. For most military brats, in the older generation, we spent the first 20 years of our lives moving. So where you are from is hard to answer.

      JohnWilhite challenge coins are used in the military to show pride in your unit. If your unit has one and you don't have it in your pocket at the bar, you usually end up buying drinks.They are also heirarchal. For instance, if you have one from the joint chiefs of st...  more
