Greetings. I served in B 1/9 back in the 80's under the command of the intrepid RJ Coates. I come to this site frequently to get a fix of the unfiltered banter that defined my time in the Corps. Although my dive socks all have holes in them and polypro is rotten, the experience to work with some of the finest men that I have ever met has stayed with me. Semper Fi. Fergie.

Hey everyone, i'm a Army Ordnance 1LT currently in Iraq for the second time. I did a little, but really insignificant, time enlisted in the reserves.

I just recently put my packet in for PSYOP and so now i'm doing a little self education. This will probably be my last post until I've read older threads.

I'm looking forward to gaining knowledge from yours.

Hello gentlemen,

I have found this website to be an invaluable tool for research and networking and would like to introduce myself.

My name is Dave, I served four years in the Marine Corps. Started off with Alpha Co. "RAIDERS" 1stBN 4thMAR and deployed to Iraq for OIF II/III attached to the 11th MEU. Highlight of the deployment was being the lead element for operations to capture Al-Sadr in Najaf and the surrounding cemetery. Second deployment was with 11th MEU Maritime Special Purpose Force (M.S.P.F). No spectacular fights that time around but I did get to see the world. My goal is to become an 18D.

I am currently looking for recruiters with Dyncorp or Triple Canopy and hope to attend the operators course and head downrange ASAP. Any info on contacts Please PM me.

Thank you and Semper Fi.

Hey gents,
My name is Jason. Former Marine with 3/4, 3rd recon, and 5th Force. Been a sheriffs deputy and worked with BW in Mosul in 05/06. Been running my own thing in the midwest since then, but I'm headed back to the box ASAP. I've been a visitor to the site for a while but wanted to bring it out into the open and let everyone know I'm looking.
My call sign with BW is Oz for anyone who wants to vet me. Glad to be a part and looking forward to doing some good networking.

Checking back in
Not sure I properly introduced myself when I first joined way back when, so thought I would catch up on my ettiquet now.
I'm retired Army, Nam vet (101st). Finished my last contract end of June at the Embassy in Kabul where I was a shift supervisor, and later Site Trainer.
Didn't like the contract offer Armor Group made when they won the contract, so decided to take a break.
Am a lurker, so don't post much, but I hope to start networking again as I am now contract hunting.

Best regards,

1st Post
Hello to everyone and nice to be a part of the community. I was in C Co 1/75 from July 2000-Dec 2006. RS class 05-01. Been a part of OEF and OIF along with all the good regimental training that goes in between the deployments. Was an 11b3v when I got out in 06. Currently residing on the west coast so I do miss the smell of the swamp and paper mills in Savannah, but gotta go where the job hunt takes ya. Again, thanks for lettin me tag along and i'll catch everyone later.

First Post

I served in ARNG from 87-98. in a variety of MOS's. Primarily 11B. I hold 95B MOS also. Favorite job was LRSD team member with Det 1, 1/158th CAV(ABN), 29th ID MDARNG. I participated with 48th Brigade during Desert Sheild/Desert Storm. At the time, we completed what was the longest NTC rotation on record. 68 days in the Mojave during winter. That was a suckfest. Ground war ended so fast we never made the trip over. I commissioned TX ARNG OCS in AUG 95. Resigned in OCT 98.

I did some work for Olive Group after Hurricane Katrina and met some great guys that got me in tune with my former self. I am exploring getting into the PMC field.

harry131 5 February 2008 00:27

Hi all,
I'm former Australian Army (5years), surveillance operator in Royal Australian Artillery. I now work as a protection officer with Australian Federal Police. Also have worked in civilian security since 1998. Looking to get my first gig in sand pit. Hopefully this site will give me all the advice in tips i need. Getting foot in the door is the hardest part.

Just joining the forum...
Thought I'd check this forum out. Just got back from LV, NV @ the SHOT convention. Had the opportunity to reconnect with some old/and new Hooah's out there. Hoping to find the same here.
