    1. Happest my years from 17-19 years old(1993-1995), I had a blast and was a crazy kid.
    2. Least happy years was late 1995-2000 when I was in the Army. Those were tough miserable times.

    The happiest years are those yet to come...

    The saddest are those gone by...

    My best years were when I was an Explorer, from 16 to 20.

    19-23 were the best I think... It's been fun

    the worst were probably the few years before that..

    The best years are the ones I'm living right now...Everyday is one that was not promised to me so I'm grateful for it. In the past seven years I have married, gotten my current dream job, and become a father.
    The least happy years were those where I suffered but they happened for a reason and I'm happy I made it through.

    The ones where I didn't know Jenna. I thought it only fair to add that to the poll.

    Yeah. Gotta go there. I thank God everyday. Great career, great wife, great kids (a little respect from my older boys) and even respect from some peers. Don't know why but yeeha.

    The years when they didn't know me were also the years when they didn't know you, Terminator!

    Since I'm retired from LE with a nice pension, plus benefits, mortgage paid off, cars paid for, the happiest years are the ones I'm living today. I can go and come as I please, sleep all day Monday or any day if I want, take a vacation whenever the fancy strikes, visit family and friends and stay away as long as I please.
    Actually the pleasures of retirement are too lengthy to list.
    I've never had any unhappy years but have had a few unhappy days, one being 9/11/01 when so many innocent men, women and children died.

    I'd say between 12 and 20 were the worst years of my life.

    And then when I graduated college things started looking up.


    I completed my education at a school several people told me I wouldn't be able to complete.

    Then I got hired by 2 different agencies, with other agencies giving me job offers.

    And presently, I'm doing a damn good job in a field that, while I was between 12 and 20 yoa, everyone told me I was too small/too short to do.

    So, I'd have to say right now are the best years of my life.
