Hi guys,
I'm Gez, I havent had any military experience yet but am hoping to join 4RAR sometime next year, I would be glad for any information anyone has on getting in.

Thanks for the invite to join this auspicious forum. I have been lurking for several years, and have only recently had something worth saying and missed my opportunity because I hadn't joined yet.
I am an ARMY comms guy proud and happy to have done my small part in the armed forces even as a REMF.
I am currently working in Iraq. I never realized I missed being around these type of personalities, since I left the military, but regular civilians just aren't the kind of people I like hangging or working around. Still have some of the stupid things I left the military because of but the money and some of the people I have met (non REMFs) have made it worth staying in and more enjoyable.
Most of the people on this Forum are like the people I prefer to be around and I appreciate the opportunity to be here. Thanks, hopeless/snow

C co 3/75 FIST from '93-'95. I'm over on under a different screen name, but have been thinking about returning as an O via OCS after a substantial break in service, and wanted to get some more info over here regarding selection and junk. I realize that I'll have to wait until I reach 1LT(P) to go to before the board, but that's no reason not to read up in the meanwhile. Thanks.

I'm in my first year of college majoring in Business Administration. I will be enlisting in the Navy within the next year or two and figured this is a good place to soak up some information. I appreciate everybody's time here and I'll make sure to search before I ask. Thanks.

A civilian, I'm honoured to be on this site. The amazing people here are a credit to every branch of service. I don't have much to say on any subject but I enjoy the lively minds that do. To both the Vets and active duty folks, thank you for your service.
