    They changed things a while back. Spouse now get their permanent ID at 70 rather than 65. I strongly recommend you get a full education on what all there is coming to you and you family. Enjoy it you earned.

    Well, for the younger generation, "wars" are simply something they study in history books. Yikes, I don't know as much as I should.

    Did you fight for the Union or the Confederacy? My guess is that 'Maine' refers to the north.

    Did you really sing about "eating goober peas"?

    Awesome, thanks for all your service time, active and Guard.
    Every 3 years, dependents need new card too. Not you, your stuck with your picture etc, unless you "lose" it.

    Good news. Thanks for your Service. You might can get the twenty cent long necks at the enlisted mans club. NCO or Officers club etc. Know you can get cans for a quarter at the bowling alley.

    Dependents need new cards every 4 years

    Mine says indef..but I get a Blue card when I turn 60.. Wife I think will also have to get a new card then

    I think it is funny (sort of) I retired as a SGT E-5.. I joined the National Guard with a contract to go to OCS to be commissioned.. but things happen, time past and I was making too much money to take off to go to OCS...I ended up being too old to go and never went to Staff School to get promoted.

    When I retired, I had 15+ years time in grade
