I enjoy sharing my experiences with those that ask. The only thing that irks me is the inevitable "did you kill someone" question. For whatever reason, civilians have a perverse curiosity about this.
Otherwise I'm open to all questions. For the most part, my deployment experiences (especially the first one) were positive. I always feel it is important folks get the story from first hand experience instead of from various news outlets.
I deployed as an older guy with old school experiences and training that allowed me to absorb with better perspective than most, much of the issues around me.
