Im beginning to wonder if they have eased the membership restrictions with out saying anything. I joined and they basically asked if I had served or a member of my family had. They didnt ask who, when or where. I was not required to submit docs beyond proof of address. <Mod edit: Sorry, we can't discuss/suggest that here.>
