Yes, I was born in PA and now live in VA. I definitely miss the uniform, traveling, and the people... well most of them.

Many thanks for the award!It really made my day. I'm off on vacation but I'm on it when I get back!

How do you like VA? I was born and raised in VA. Work and school has taken me to other places but I liked it.

I like VA, it's nice except for the traffic. I'm pretty close to DC so 95 gets jam packed all the time. That's my biggest complaint. Other than that, I like living here so far.
