    One more thing I drew hostile fire pay for 39 months during the Vietnam war and the only way you can get that is be in combat.........

    Not true at all.

    All REMFs draw the same combat pay as the grunts. Right now as we speak, military personnel are drawing HFP in Kuwait, where there is absolutely nothing going on at all. Not to mention several other places around the world where there are no shots fired in anger.

    It is very easy to secure all the amenities of war without "paying the piper".

    Navy....you've already said in the past that you didn't serve in actual combat. You need to remember what you write.

    How could he have been in combat when his job during that time was to keep record of his ships inventory? I don't remember exactly what he said his job was but I do remember UtahBill explaining just what Navy's job was a while back.

    Not sure how much combat the shopkeeper of a ship could have seen in 'Nam.

    The SK rate in the Navy is also the identifier for explosive ordinance disposal (EOD), SEALS, salvage divers and SWCC (Special Warfare Combat Craft) crewman.

    You boys might wanna slow down, lest you start denegrating someone's service.

    Took me a few minutes, but I thought I remembered someone telling me that divers were designated as storekeepers. Turns out that it isn't just divers who hold that rate.

    I could say so many things right now, but I reckon I'll be cool.

    Actually the inconsistencies in Navy's story have been pointed out by some of his fellow veterans. Specificially people who served around the same time he did. You might want to read what is being said - Navy has a long history of exaggerating his service and being caught by other people.

    I didn't serve during that era, so I can't say. And, I'm not going to go digging around trying to smear the service of a fellow vet.

    I've seen other vets make comments that made me question their actual service in the past and I didn't say anything and I'm not going to start now.

    I was only pointing out that SK didn't necessarily mean that a sailor is just a store keeper.
