Welcome Josh!

We certainly need a few more good young ones to replace the old bastards like myself. I wear an Airborne tab myself, but I still fully don't understand the reason for jumping out of a perfectly good plane.

God Bless you Josh....my 18 year old also named Josh has been talking to the local army sgt about joining. Even though I was in the service, I don't want him to be. But it's his decision.

Best Wishes to your son.....

I wish him nothing but the best. He is doing the most honorable thing an American can do.

Cool. Should be fun for him.

Get him to change his home of record to TX, AZ, or Florida so he can avoid state income tax.

Good for him.

I'm thinking about doing something like that as well later on.

They let Raider fans in the Army? They used to screen closer than that.

Good luck to him. It's good to have people like him who are ready, willing, and able to protect America and the market research industry.

Did you fight in Nam?

You say that as if you think the Airborne has no need for poets and dreamers. In World War II, the "Haiku talkers" were instrumental in sending coded messages during the Normandy invasion.

Get in your boats, men.
Shoot the Germans on the beach.
Liberate Europe.

Phobia,

Unless they've changed it from 1999, MO didn't charge State Income Tax for military members.

Believe me, it was a shock in 2000 when I had to pay MD state tax the first time. :eek:

Some states, as long as an income isn't made in that state - they are tax exempt. NY was that way. BUT, if I had been stationed in NY, I would've had to pay taxes. Thankfully, I haven't been a "resident" of that state in over 10 years.

it is an honorable thing to do. Keep alert, and make others die for their country. Thank you.
