    I have heard of brothers serving in each branch of the service before.

    Really? I never have. Not saying it isn't possible, just that I've never seen it before. Without a doubt, I'll take your word for it.

    When you say brothers do you mean it in the literal sense or the figurative sense? Because I have heard of family members being in differnet branches but never the same person being in two branches.

    I have ran into a person before that there goal was to serve in each branch of the military. I have served with an enlisted Marine before and I got out and lost touch. Next thing I know he went back to school got his degree, became an officer. He retired a Major in the Marine Corps.

    Nice, I'm sure I've told you before but I feel one can never show their appreciation enough to those who have served to protect me and my family. Thank you again for your service, I appreciate it John, I really do!

    Weird. So what dictates having served in a branch? Completing basic training. For each branch?

    I actually tried to go back to active Marines, but it was during Clinton's term, and because of cutbacks, they couldn't take prior service NCOs, so I went into the Army for five years. I just don't claim the Army, because I hated it.

    You've got to serve out the contract terms, which usually includes basic training for that branch. The only exception is when one goes from the Marines to another branch, and then basic training is skipped, as it's generally accepted that it'd be a waste of time.

    I also knew a couple of brothers (figuratively) that were crossovers. One was a former Marine, the other was a former Airforce Search and Rescue. There was even a cat from the French Foreign Legion in the 82nd when I was there. Tall Afrikkaner guy from Rhodesia - tough as nails but always smiling.

    How did the cat serve in the Military? I can't imagine fitting him for boots.

    By the way, I served two years in Germany. In those two years, I saw only one Dolphins game. :(
