I would assume that verification proof would be for those who are currently active duty, reserves, National Guard and retired be in the form of I’d cards and for those who didn’t retire it would be a DD 214 which has your combat service annotated on it.

What about us Air Force folks??

Mentioning me usually gets worse pricing! 

I was checking pricing on some of my short term cruises and noticed that some of them have a nice, big military discount.  It seems that they are showing up only on the really short term ones, but if

Yes, of course. And the Air Force has its own spirited cry which can mean anything positive. Here are some examples: Hooah - Army; Hoorah - Navy; Oorah - Marine Corps; Nice Putt - Airforce.

Difference between Air Force and ground pounders:

Army officer (points towards the front line and turns to enlisted guys): Give ‘em hell, private!

Air Force enlisted guy (helps officer strap into combat aircraft): Give ‘em hell, sir!

(said as one of the aforementioned AF officers)

Thanks, that’s the first I’ve seen that lists the necessary documentation.  We’ve ordered his DD214 AND his DD215 which corrected the original to add Honorable Conditions.  I’ll just put them with our passports.

Edited to add it says 2 years service OR six months in a war zone.  Does not say combat service is a requirement correct?

There are more military discounts "out there" than I seen in many years. I preferred the way "Princess" did it, submit the proof once, prior to the sail date, and it remained in your file with them. 

Enjoyed the banter on this thread so far, even being enlisted USAF ;>) Even though I was only an E-4, I was selected to do a year as a missile crew chief  prior to my SE Asia tour. Much safer in northern Thailand than supervising Larry, Moe and Curly Joe at "George Air Force Base" in the California desert.

Hagar,

It doesn't matter that you were an E-4. What's important is that you stood up, pledged the oath and served honorably. Which is A LOT more than many young Americans did nor have done......even now. Thanks for your service to our Country from one Vet to another. By the way, what type of missiles? :27_sunglasses:

This is how I feel about hubby’s service.  He tells me it was clear early on that he was not cut out for the military and, due no doubt to a little too much partying on his off days in Sicily, he received a General Discharge under Honorable Conditions.  But he DID SERVE and I am proud of him for it.

This is exactly why one of my children chose AF.  Subsequently they are finding themselves aerial being refueled where the saying is...

There are two types of people: 

Those that have already vomited and those who are about to.

Service is service and we thank you both for it.

Appreciate that, wanted a career but my first wife couldn't handle the lifestyle. 

I was in TAC so all of the classics for the F4 and F105. I specialized in the Falcon (AIM-4) since it was so messy with hydraulic fluid but Sidewinders (AIM-9), Sparrows (AIM-7) and the Mavericks (AGM-65) were each in different diagnostic bays (seems like we did more painting than electronics though ;>)

The F-4 was an awesome platform!  We had 'em at Ramstein there at my first duty station.  Although I probably complained nearly every day, I loved the AF and kick myself daily for getting out before retirement.  Dumbest move of my life.  

Thank you all for your service, and also to your spouses; Lord knows it's harder on them than us.

@Floski Best 4 years of my life were spent in Europe at Soesterberg, The Netherlands (Camp New Amsterdam) 1972-76.  I went to Ramstein a few times.  I made the rounds in Europe going TDY to play basketball.  I miss those F-4 Phantoms.

I got to go to Crete playing basketball when I was stationed at Boerfink Bunker!  How cool was that?

@Floski My best trip was on a night train through East Germany to play basketball in Berlin.  We were told that we would be shot if we got off the train for any reason.  I kept wondering if World War 3 hinged on whether or not I got off the train.   I decided to stay on the train until we reached Berlin..
