As a ex-army (air cav 1st/18th) I welcome you and would like to say thanks for your service. For anyone that does not know Infantry is the worst living conditions and the worst food and the hardest job, but those hard core men re-up for the job knowing it and loveing it, again thanks.

Luvrv8,
how long were you in?? I just re-enlisted for another 5 years, been in 3.. I been through RANGER school, airborne,sniper, and EMT. you right about the infantry, it is the worst living conditions,food and job but DAMN I LOVE IT!!

So now for the question, the main thing is what kinda MPG do you get with the duramax?? what are some of the common issues they have and are they easy to fix??

On more thing, for all of you that support what I do for a living thank you!!! I always tell people if they dont support the war atleast support the men and women that are serving the country!

I was active for 3 years, Ca National Guard for 5. I went to the first Iraq war and worse yet the L.A. riots. Damn scumbags in our own country takeing pot shots at our helicopters. I was a triple winger (crew chief wings, air assult and airborn) not quite bad enough for Ranger school so I was a fly boy.
