served in the Air Force from 68'-91' Spent time in Nam, PI & Korea. Always amazed me of some of the lies that Mil guys could come up with that hadn't even been overseas.
The thing that bothers me is guys that weren't in (my genaration) that keep on asking about war stories. Not something I care to remember! So I tend to tell them about how nice the scenery or something way off the subject to get them forget what they asked.
Some folks try to build themselves up because they can't stand the truth about their own reality!
Just get tired of the wantabes or wishihads!
