Salvete! I am just curious as to who all in our great Republic has formally or currently serves in the Armed Forces of any country. I was hoping to get a better sense of our veteran community and what all we could do to make the Republic more appealing to our fellow brothers and sisters in arms. I am a former member of the United States Army, I served sadly only for a short year before I was medically discharged and as such don’t really consider myself really a veteran but I did thoroughly enjoy and take pride in my short service. I would love to hear from our veterans, anything you feel like sharing. I want this community to be a safe place for all of us, especially those brothers and sisters who saw the worst of it and came back with those memories. Thank you everyone and valete!
