Howdy Kathy;

I didn't mean to be derogatory. I was in the Army and we referred to Air Force guys as "fly boys", Navy guys as "swabbies", and Marines as "jarheads". I'm not sure what they called Army guys in general, but Army infantry were called "grunts", "ground pounders", or "cannon fodder". I managed to find out a little more, but will send it to you via e-mail in a couple of days. An SF-180 request must be signed by the deceased veteran's next-of-kin. I'll explain later.
