Thank God for all who served our country in our armed forces. The month of November is our time to remember them all. The fact is that all gave something but some gave it all! We have many here on Crappie.com who served in the military. If you served...then say so.... We thank all of you.

I was in the Army national Guard for 8 Years. 1st MOS was infantry, then Artillery and last 4 years in Heavy Equipment Maintenance. I never considered myself a veteran because I never deployed to a war zone.
Our church recognizes our veterans each November and they bring in each branch and ask the veterans in that branch to stand. One of my friends who served in Vietnam asked me why I didn't stand and I told him. He insisted I was a veteran and showed me the Google definition of a veteran as anyone who served in the military. (Ones that served in a war are called War Veteran, IE Vietnam Vet.)
So I started standing when they bring in the Army colors, but still don't feel I earned the right.

You most certainly earned the right to be called a Veteran. I was drafted & served during the Viet Nam War "era", just not IN The Nam. I was stationed in South Korea, which was considered a "hardship tour" (not a Combat Tour). I saw no "combat action" (never fired a weapon in a combat or repelling invasion action). 13mo in S Korea & I was released early (total of 19mo active duty served) ... that remaining 6mo and the followup years of National Guard duty were waived because I went back to my previous job (Hospital Pharmacy Technician), which was considered a "critical civilian occupation".

I consider myself a Veteran .... I just don't consider myself a "Hero".

Gindog, Nothing to feel bad about not knowing what your father did. You, sir, are not alone. My father served 32 yrs in the Marine Corp. I know his main job was as a radio repairman. I know he was in several places that was considered war zones. Other than repairing radio's a bit came out when he got really drunk, but not very often. Korea, is considered a hardship tour, in other words, Families did not accompany the service member, primarily due to only a cease fire and not an end to the war. So unless he talked about what he did their, which don't necessarily always happen, you wouldn't know. You have every reason to be proud of your dad for serving...

Never feel ashamed for not knowing what your significant other, parent, or best friend did in the service. Most are humble and rarely speak about their time unless its to another service member. We have a language you can't understand, spoken and unspoken. Sure you can comprehend the words, however the meaning behind them eludes those that never served. It's part of the bond we share regardless of branch.

WOW! Your statement "Most are humble and rarely speak about their time unless its to another service member. We have a language you can't understand, spoken and unspoken" is right on target. Part of my duties was assigning the F-105 pilots to Vietnam duty and investigating state side F-105 training crashes. In addition to that I also presided over the military portion of funeral services. I do not want to remember the times when I had to search for body parts or force deployed parachute guns during aircraft accidents. I choose not to remember the countless times when I had the duty of informing loving parents that their child died serving their country. I choose not to remember the faces and the trauma on the faces of those returning from SEA. (South East Asia)

People do not understand unless they also have walked in your shoes. That is why I choose to not speak on the horrors of war but rather I speak on the gratitude for those who served and answered the call of duty.

Ship, you had a few jobs that no one wanted for sure. You and Hanr3 also explained it very well. Most prefer to forget the horrors of what they seen and had to do to survive. Those that did not serve in a war zone, ( of which I'm one ), it's not so much a want to forget, but you focus more on the here and now. As you well know, you have to focus on the now in the military. yes you might reflect back on where you were and what was going on their, but over time most fades away to the way back of your mind and takes a good jarring to bring forward to the for thoughts of the mind.

I am a fortunate veteran- never fired upon although I spent many months in the Middle East. I spent three 90+ day rotations in Kobhar Towers in Dahran (spl?) - on the last one left just a couple of weeks before the bombing. Fortunately none of our troops died but many injured.
