My Fiance is not a veteran, but I am.  I joined when I was 18, deployed to Kandahar, Afghanistan shortly after I turned 22, came home at 24, and ETS’d when I was 26.  I decided not to re-enlist, but I didn’t retire either.  Just finished my contract.  I also had some injuries overseas and a few lingering issues (nothing too serious!) so I applied for disability through the VA.  I get a check every month & free health care at the VA hospital in my city.  I work full time, function normally, and many people don’t even know I was in the military.  Not sure if you had a specific question or anything, or if you just wanted to pick someone’s brain… hope this helps 🙂

Unrelated to your post, but..,

@DaneLady:   Thank you for your service.  You truly are a hero to everyone in our nation, and people definitely don’t tell you that enough!

@abbie017: Thanks 🙂  I guess I just look at it as “doing my job” and nothing heroic… but looking back at how young I was and the things we all had to go through over there, it’s like DAMN I’m lucky to be alive!
