Hey, maybe you knew my Dad, he was on Guam (1944-45).

You are a little short on your introduction.

Hello All,

Thank you for accepting. Former Army. Joined so I could stay in touch with a few old friends and keep abreast of a few things. Bounced around as an Intel weenie and finished with 7th GRP.

Hello All, I appreciate being accepted to the group, and I more so appreciate that the group exists! Spent nearly a decade on AD, then the Army in its infinite wisdom (at the time) decided I was done enough to send back to civilian life and school. So, the the reserve I went. I'm on year 34, and am now mostly a staff troll. I'm here to learn from the group, and stay in touch too.

Hi! Always was interested in specforces, almost about history of them. It's a great thing that you can read stories, conversations of all of you. So decided to join this forum. I think I'd ask some questions here.

Flesh your intro succinctly, please.

Succinctly? Damn Doc, I don't think any Jar Head has used that word in the history of Jar Heads. Hope you're well Brother.

Thank you for the approval and thank all of the SPECWAR community for all y’all do. I’m a 20 year vet of the Navy and unfortunately have the displeasure of trying to find if if this guy was an actual SEAL or is he scamming my sister. If any one can help me out all I have is his name and possible age. Thank you

Go to the Phony SEAL Check section and make a post now that you've posted your intro. If you'd like too keep it more discreet send FROG a PM. Hope you get some answers.

You gotta do better than that Marine. We don't need your entire SRB or life story but give us a bit more. Keep it succinctly.

Thanks!

Thanks admins for approving. I'm an Air Force Medical Vet. Was assigned to the 82nd, 375th, and 59th medical groups as well as the 332 air expeditionary wing for a brief tour. About to be unemployed as I'm seeking a Masters degree because I'm tired of being told I don't qualify if I don't have it.
