Lol... Hey, to be fair, I'm only 44 but due to multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan and this last one to Afghan in 2014 fucked up my lower back (yeah, thanks Taliban, you fucking assholes), my body is broken which has put me on pain management and multiple surgeries ever since.

Dude, I'm only 37 without back issues, and half the nights I go "Ehhh, it's 10:30 and I'm really too lazy to go out and get logs... I'll do it tomorrow" 🤣

Sorry guys, didn't go out last night. My old broken ass fell asleep on the couch (back pain meds) and when I woke up, it was after 0230 in the morning. I did swap setups so if the rain holds off tonight or doesn't start till late tonight, then I will try again tonight.

Duude, thanks for serving! I lament my jumping out of 7-tons when training for “contact” drills. Wtf was that about, I only went outside the wire once! Fucking war, lol. Hopefully you’ve filed for disability and getting some compensation for sacrificing your body. I need to go file one of these days.

That'll do it. Even though you have been through body altering events age is a factor. I am 43 and am a bit slower to recover working out and drinking versus 20 years ago. I will also say comfort and a slower pace is becoming more appealing at this stage in my life.

37 checking in. Stayed up suuuper late last night playing Halo CE (yeah the first one) until 11pm. I wish I could sneak out for the occasional late night pulls. Little kiddos prevent that from happening haha.

Yeah I'm near the end of my enlistment and about to retire so recently I did put in my first claim and got 50% for my PTSD. My next big claims will be for my back, neck, right knee, and left shoulder.

Yeah, getting older sucks. My mind still thinks I can do the things I was able to 20 years ago but my body disagrees.

My boss is an ex-marine who's pushing 60, whenever we go out he'll stay out drinking till 2am - 3am, get absolutely hammered, then be up at 6:30 like nothing happened. I usually tap out at midnight, and have to hear the "This happened after 12" stories the next morning. No idea how he can still do that. It's wild.

Damn. Talk about self sacrifice. I have some shit but not all that. Neck and tinnitus I guess. I should really file. I don’t do what I used to but still enjoy being able bodied. I don’t have any kids so ijdgaf, lol. Just glad I’m not fat.

Lol, no such thing as an ex-Marine! Yeah I thought that the Marines would help me become a better drinker. Wrong! I always leave early :(

I’ve considered filing for disability..,,Bradley jacked up my hearing, but never got anything documented…..so much for “sucking it up and driving on”.

@Corprin is stupid knowledgeable about this stuff…walked me through a ton and put me in touch with WWP.
