...meet a stranger outside the base and a casual conversation starts up, I don't usually tell them I am in the military. I do not have a high and tight so it is usually a toss up for them whether I am military or not. If they ask, I usually say I'm self employed. I don't know why. I am not ashamed of being in the military. I am just not one to put stickers on my car or otherwise advertise my military status. I just don't feel comfortable letting a complete stranger know I am military. I know I am weird. I need a beer. Anyone else weird like me?
