This will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. - Elmer Davis

Any soldier, sailor, airman, or marine has fond memories of sitting around the barracks and sharing tall tales. In the Guide, we can gather here, and share our experiences. Regardless of the nation we served, or whether we were in the Army, Navy, Air Force or the Marines, we are all brothers in arms.

If you have served, are serving, or are thinking about serving, welcome to the Barracks.

At ease.
