A call to "those" who serve...BF Members in The Military.

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

37 years in the Guard with 2 years, 364 days to go. Pretty sure 40 years will be enough. Been a mil-tech for 30+ years. Countless State activity duty missions, thousands or days away from family and friends, Can't count how many kids birthdays I missed, or fathers days, or mothers days 2 deployments, one to Iraq, Liberty, Taji, and Hammer as a BMO in 2009-2010. No one can ever laugh at what we as Guardsman do. The whole two days a month and two weeks in the summer is a myth, especially for us senior leaders. We put in hundreds of hours a month to try and complete in two days what the active component does in 30. We are definitely logistical wonders. Been in the maintenance field my entire career. currently a 915E CW4 in the JFHQ as the states MAIT Manager. Can't wait to retire, want to go across the country by Bombtrack Hook EXT-C. I'll be 57 so no excuse not too. Thanks to all who have served, we're all brothers and sisters in one way and we are a small family.

Did the Great Alleghany Passage in July 2019, from Pittsburgh to Cumberland and back in 3 days, 2 hours. Want to do it again, enjoy the view this time.

Im a New Guy on the forum, But I recently retired from the Army at 20 years. Being stationed in Italy is what really turned me on to biking to begin with.

Did a tour in Korea in 99 with 2ID HHB Division Artillery (Camp Stanley that no longer exists) and 2.5 years on Kelley Hill with 3rd ID, 206 FSB. Got into cycling just last year, ironically, in Korea (back here working as a civilian).
