    Default Who has served in the military? And when?

    Seems to me that that there's a lot of people on this site who have served in various capacities and often many years ago, but also with a strong element more recently.

    It would be interesting to see that service shown in a poll.

    Congratulations, Rising Sun*!
    I think that is a great idea to start a thread about such an interesting topic. As far i as concerned, when i was in the Army (1977/1978), for my Country it was peace time. So the only war i served it was (and still it is) the long war of my everyday life... It's a kind of tough struggle that started about fiftythree years ago and isn't yet over...
    Best regards to all the boys that will post in this thread...

    Well between 1983 (not old enough to actually deploy until 1985 though) and 2007 I managed NI once, FRY 3 times, Iraq twice, Afghan once.

    Sapper throughout.

    They were pierced to the heart by the charms of Brown Bess.

    For clarification, the poll isn't limited to people who were on active service in the wars listed but who served during those eras. This includes reserves / Territorials etc and other forces which could have been deployed, even if they weren't.

    I think you're responsible for four out of the five eras voted on so far.

    Yes, and the way things are going in Arabia and its environs lately, it'll be sooner rather than later.

    No option for those who are still serving, mostly in the twenty20 club and spar/mace/naafi shop - it's thanks to the sacrifice of many of our waistlines that those shops are still in business.

    I apologise for omitting that option.

    I suppose it's in the nature of an interest in military history that I look to the past.

    There doesn't appear to be any way of inserting a currently serving option in the poll, but anyone who is currently serving is encouraged to post even if my focus on the past has unfortunately excluded them from the present in the poll.

    You might be in the thick of it. Japan started the Pacific War on a weekend.

    Jolly well hope not, if a war kicks off on the weekend I might miss countryfile, and that won't do!

    I served during what is know as the "Vietnam Era", in the USAF, 1974 to 1978. I was an Aircraft Avionics technician, primarily radios with some navigation systems thrown in. I started out working on the venerable B-52 bombers and KC-135 tankers. (SAC) Then I went to a squadron equipped with the C-130 aircraft, configured as an Airborne Command Post. (7th ACCS) My final stint was working on F-4 Phantoms. (TAC) Most of my time in the service was spent overseas in the Pacific area. My duty stations included Thailand and Okinawa, with TDY (temporay duty) in the Philippines and Korea. I had a great time and am proud to have served my country.

    "C-130 aircraft, configured as an Airborne Command Post. (7th ACCS)"
    MC 130, "Combat Talons" ? if my recall is correct, Laconia?
    I've always considered the airborne command post variant of the c-130 to be one of the more interesting, along with the Ac-130H and U.

    I'd be interested to learn more of those variants.
