Hi,

Noticed there are some other Veterans out there, so thought I would start a thread to learn more about other's service who are/wanting to be Rene owners! Many thanks to those of you who have & are serving! I served as a Medic in the Army from 1983-1992 & served in Operation Desert Storm. Miss it, & wish I would have stayed in longer. Would love for Jeep to come out with a tank colored Rene!!!

Hi,


I was USN: electrician (EM) on fast attack subs 1983 - 1991. I served on OK City (SSN 723) - initial manning/commissioning/sea trials, and the Baton Rouge (SSN 689). I'd do it all again if I had my life to live over, but I don't miss it one little bit!


My TH is my first Jeep.

I'm not a Veteran, but my father is. Served in Vietnam. Purple Heart and Silver Star. Navy pilot flew A-4 Skyhawks. Shot in both legs by antiaircraft fire while on a bombing mission. Barely made it back to the USS Oriskany. Landed...passed out. And now? He LOVES my Trailhawk. Taking her on her first camping/ATV trip with him this weekend :)

But, the main reason I wanted to comment was to say "Thank you" to all our forum members serving, and who have served....to protect my freedoms! God bless!

Thank you for your service, Veterans. Very cool to see so many of you on here, much respect...(and you all have great taste in vehicles. ;) )

evrafter, my dad is also a Vietnam vet who loves the TH! He got almost as obsessed with finding one as I was and he started calling dealers for me back in March. :laugh:
We've gone driving around some of the hunting trails he uses. I keep telling him he should trade in his truck and add to Renegade family.

Eileen,
Thanks for starting this thread and thanks for your service as a medic! I was active duty Army (stationed in Germany) and still serving in the National Guard as a logistics officer. I'm also an ROTC instructor and am very happy when cadets pursue the nursing corps.

So maybe Jeep hit a nerve by making the strong Willys heritage connection?

I think i'd be hard to let go of the Willys connection!
A vital part of their history not to be let go of.

I remember A-Burg! I was stationed at Ledward Barracks in Schweinfurt (and Bad Kissingen) from 1984-88. Went back in 2006 for a short training mission with the Guard.
I was there 1984-1985! Loved it & was there when the exchange rate was pretty decent. Haven't been back since, but one day....... Wish I would have traveled more while I was over there....
