  2. On behalf of the Military and Veterans Chapter, we would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! Best regards, Richard "Doc" Strait, Alternate National Director and Webmaster Military and Veterans Chapter
  3. I am the Alternate National Director for the Military Veterans Chapter, MVC. The MVC does not require sponsorship. To be eligible to join the MVC the individual must meet one of the following: Be currently on active duty in the US military, National Guard, or Canadian Armed Forces. Honorable discharged or retired from one of the above. Be a widow or widower of a US military, National Guard, or Canadian Armed Forces member. Be a DoD employee who was embedded with our active military. Current FMCA member. Best regards, Richard "Doc"
  4. Thank you everyone for the responses and suggestions. I will go through the various routes and points of interest. Best regards, Richard "Doc"
  5. Howdy everyone. At the end of October I will be headed from the Houston Texas area to the Mobile Alabama area. I have heard for year that I-10, I-20, and parts of US-190 through Eastern Texas and much of Louisiana are in bad shape. Does anyone have an update on that? Suggested routes? Does not need to be the quickest or shortest route either. I am retired so I have the ability to take my time. Thank you. Richard "Doc"
  6. Have some ferrites on hand too. Even with the motor off, you may have noise and interference that the ferrites will help with. Best regards, Richard "Doc", AC8AL
  7. I am a half breed...LOL.. I was a Fleet Marine Force Hospital Corpsman and served my entire career with the Marines on the green side. Only time I spent on ship was when the Marine Unit I was with would go on a float. I never even did time at a Naval base. The US Space Force does fall under the Department of the Air Force. They could be called Space Jockeys, Orbiters, or even Rocketeer. Right now though since they are in their infancy, how about "Space Cadets?" Richard "Doc"
  8. I have not found a "Space Force" flag or magnetic flag yet. Since the US Space Force is now considered a branch of the US Armed Forces, I will add it.
  9. Wife and I fly the USA, POW/MIA, USMC, and USN flags. We also have magnets of LE and FR flags that we display. Eventually we will have small flags for all the military branches that we will display.
  10. On behalf of the Military Veterans Chapter, I would like to wish everyone a Happy Independence Day/4th of July. If you have the chance, please read MVC President Weithofer's Independence Day Reflections. Best regards, Richard "Doc" Strait Military Veterans Chapter Alternate National Director and Webmaster
  11. My wife grew up in the Boston area. She is Irish and Italian. She served in the Marine Corps for many years as a warehouseman. My saying is slightly different due to all that: "Happy wife, SAFE life."
  12. Wife and I have a Class with the Ford V10. As others have said, it will get you there but it will not set any land speed records or win a fuel economy award in those mountains. We also do not tow the vehicle when going through the mountains or on the hot days. We are considering upgrading to a super C or Fiver. Best regards, Richard "Doc"
  13. I put the slides in when heavy storms or high winds come through. I have put the jacks up during high winds too. I put the awning out when the weather is decent and little wind. If I leave the rig, the awning comes in. Happy Camping and RVing!
  14. I have used a Cobb grill for several years now. No complaints at all. It has done a great job. Best regards, Richard "Doc"
  15. The Military Veterans Chapter (MVC) of the FMCA would like to thank our WWII D-Day veterans and families for their sacrifices. Richard "Doc" Strait, MVC Alternate National Director.
  16. Welcome to the forums! Any amount of camping is great. 🙂 Best regards, Richard "Doc"
  17. I have a military style bugle that I use for military ceremonies and events. I played TAPS today as well. Best regards, Richard "Doc"
  18. The Military & Veterans Chapter would like to take time to pause, recognize, and pay our respect to our military men and women that have made the ultimate sacrifice for us and our country. Please remember those serviceman, servicewomen, and their families this Memorial Day weekend. Let the families know that they (their loved one and them) are not forgotten. Visit the chapter website to read the Chapter President's Memorial Day remarks. Rev. Richard Strait, USN Retired FMCA-MVC Alternate National Director & Webmaster.
  19. Welcome aboard Jeautry. Many of us veterans have our medications shipped to directly to the campground address and not our personal mailbox (PMB) addresses. I ask the campground if I can have my medications and packages shipped directly to the campground. Most the time they say yes. If they say no, then I visit the local post office and inquire of general delivery services. If I am going to be in that area for the season, I may opt for a PO Box if they do not cost much. PO Box costs vary from post office to post office. For the controlled medications that need a signature, if they are being delivered to the campground then my wife or I must be present to sign for them from the postal carrier. The post office, if we went that route, has us sign for the controlled medications when we come and get our mail. Best regards, Richard "Doc"
  20. Welcome aboard Mr. Robistow. Go Navy!
  21. On behalf of the Military Veterans Chapter of the FMCA and myself, Thank you Vietnam Veterans.
  22. Welcome aboard! I am retired Navy yet I did my whole career with the Marines. First as a Fleet Marine Force Hospital Corpsman and then as a civilian chaplain.
