It seems like everyone is doing that dumb "ten year's difference" thing on Facebook. Personally, I think this is just depressing for the military community no matter how you slice it.

Either you're a young troop who's now reminded of how goofy they looked as a civilian, you're a senior enlisted/officer who's now reminded of how much of a dumb boot they once were, or you're a veteran who's being reminded of how in shape you once were ten years ago.

If you're an older vet who's been out for longer than ten years, well, you're probably the same salty person in the photo, and no one could tell the difference or that you aged. Maybe a bit more gray and less hair.

Anyways. The Coast Guard hasn't been paid, but at least these memes are free!

1.It's simple economics. If everyone is throwing a garage sale, you need to keep your prices competitive with your neighbor's. Anyone driving around Coast Guard housing has options for used kitchenware now.

7.Everyone wants to talk about how good it is to finally take their boots off after a field exercise. Try dropping the radios and all the spare batteries your LT said we'd need.
