    Thank you Rachel...you saved me ALOT of typing.

    On a personal note, I have 25 years worth of "bling bling" from two branches. The only place you will ever see those is in my office. And I earned every damn one of them.
    Thank you

    And to you, and everyone else who is serving or has served, I say THANK YOU and God Bless. That also applies to the significant others...

    The BBs given out at the Air Force site where I work are all pretty tightly controlled through IT policy and such. You can browse the web without too many problems, and get to your af e-mail (which is hard to get to, they have that domain locked tight), and that's mostly it. I expect what web sites you go to are watched to some degree.

    I just bought my own. If I need to get to my af e-mail I can sit at my desk. People who really need to reach me know my personal address and just cc me there when I'm away.

    Well, Im the *other half* but often it feels as if we are in too.. every one of us are on a *need to know basis*, basically - we dont know anything, I dont know if my sig other is coming home from work today with good or bad news, I dont know when hes going to tell me he is getting deployed, I dont know when he is going on TAD.. and neither does he.

    Its a very tight knit command were we are stationed, basically they have been our family for the last 3 years, we celebrate christmas/thankgiving etc together because most of the time we cannot *go home* for the holidays.. its a tough life, but I for one and very proud and for the most part, happy, to be living this life.

    So.. some need to *think* before they *type* and please do not show ignorance, or make stupid comments, when talking about *what the military can, or doesnt do, and *what they do or care about* YOU dont know.

    *steps off my soapbox*

    Yes, Im passionate LOL

    We should all show our appreciation to ALL soldiers for the sacrifices they have given to us, and for our country.

    If it wasn't for them-

    Who know's where we would be now, or most importantly-

    What Language we would be speaking!

    I know that Soldiers don't become soldiers just for the "Bling"-

    To say that would be horribly ignorant!

    But I guess we're wasting our time on Luvitlo's Stupid Comment.

    So to him, I say this:

    Oink Oink Oinkity Oink Oinky Oink Oinkie Oink

    Notice, No Periods.

    Since when being accesable 24/7 to answer work-related emails and phone calls is being considered "bling"? We "have" to carry these devices, it was waiting on my desk before I walked into the office on the first day, and yes it was already buzzing.

    I say thank you to all that are currently serving or have served in the past, being a desert storm vet myself, I know the sacrafices my family and I made during that period of time, and I can only speculate those serving now are making just as many IF NOT MORE sacrafices today than were made in any war , (oh and so we don't make any waves with the higher ranking politicians in Washington) "confilct" or "police action", that this country of ours has ever participated in. So for those of you who think that the medals service people are awarded are just "bling bling", why don't you go back in your life and give back everything your employers gave you for doing an excellant job and thought that you should be recognized for, like bonuses, jewelry.. and so on.
    And to those who are serving in our country's armed forces today, I say thank you for continuing to protect us and for fighting for my family and I's freedom, may God Bless You all and keep you Safe.

    True but that should read "personal thumb drives." Our IT folks recently took my 4GB and gave me a new 16GB.

    OK let me claify a little All my friends whom have served or still serve in the Armed forces love to "SHOW OFF" their metals and decorations from service, Me personally I wouldn't be flashing the Purple heart or whatever it's called for getting wounded in action. The best soldier would be the one who gets himself and fellow troops out without getting wounded. that's my **Bling**Bling** factor. My military friends wear their cammo or dress uniforms all the time....when you at home wear some Jeans and a t-shirt and layback some. Don't be all uptight.

    As for the tch comment I know two x-Navy computer techs and they claim the Military has all the fun toys and gadgets to play with well before the public. Which makes since they have to have the tightest and best attempted Hack Proof equipment avalible. But they also said the Military puts so many protocols??sp? and security and then add their own upgrades and defense so that it lags the best systems to death.

    As for the serving my country....I never thought much into Military but FBI and US Marshalls service was a thought I threw around, It takes alot os school and tests have to be taken and training but the end result a Federal "Cop" so to speak would be cool. I read in an earlier post that CIA and FBI have to leave their phones in their car. That would literally Kill me.

    And why should anyone Military or not have to carry their "work" phone with them at all times. Doesn't the Military have their personal cell number incase of an emergency I thought "Leave" was kind of like your Vacation that would be terrible having to read and reply to work email on a vacation.

    GT: I can't set up auto-forward or even forwarding rules with my level of access, and they won't permit it. They're already paranoid about a mistake where classified gets sent over regular e-mail, and auto-forward to commercial Internet would make a leak that much worse.

    Just got informed today about no more thumb drives, period. We have to turn in our gov't-issued ones.

    Lo: when on leave you have to provide your personnel office with a good contact number so you can be reached at any time. Your leave can be canceled for cause at any time and you are always on duty, 24/7.

    Any Soldier, wounded or not is worth my respect and commendation.

    Stuff happens, it's survival that counts- and may the divine bless all those troops that have lost their lives for our country.

    They deserve to wear their "Bling" Proudly- they earned it.

    Has the Green Eyed Monster Been Visiting You?

    You made a sweeping generalization in earlier posts about *showing off bling etc* so thats why I said something - You also dont get a purple heart for *being wounded* - number 2.
    Number 3.. when you are in a high position, you dont really get *vacation* even so, there are duty phones, they carry, sure, mine might be on a long weekend given over say memorial day, but they dont have a 9-5 job, the duty phone will ring, thier personal cells would ring, trust me, you cant leave your work behind at 5pm.. you need to be readily available etc, at all times.

    And if you cant bare to be away from your phone all day, then Im personally glad you didnt chose a Military career, or a law enforcement career, Id much have someone more worried about my saftey than if thier cell phone is ok in the glove compartment.

    you don't want to carry your work phone with you, but yet you want to be in the FBI or U.S Marshall, Do you think those guys are allowed to "not be available and up to speed on everything that is going on 24/7?" And here I was going to give you an "ata boy" for thinking but, then I remebered you don't want all that "bling bling"

    .
    First Being in the Canadian Military, i know lots of guys who have gotten wounded or killed overseas. A couple have been good Firends. Do you think that they tired to get hurt just for the medals or "bling" as you call them? How can we prevent driving in a LAV / Vechicle and getting hit by an IED? I consider all serving troops as the best, they're doing jobs most people can't or won't do so people can live free.
    Maybe your firends are proud to serve so they want to "show Off" there uniforms. I'm just guessing on that one though
