The New Guy

Greetings Gents,
My name is Mark, I have yet to serve in our great Military. Ive signed up for the Navy, just waiting to be shipped to boot. I have 8+ years working with my county's Social Services & awaiting transition to our Sheriffs Dept. I am a huge advocate of the Team mentality and its importance, I'm hoping to soak in as much knowledge as I can from all who serve. Thank you for allowing me to partake in this forum.

Hello All

Hello everyoneveryone my name is Shawn.

Thanks for the addition to the site.

I have not had the honor of serving in the military but was raised in the military. My grandfather served form 1943 thru1972 when he retired as a Senior Master Sargent in the USAF, and my father served from 1973 thru 1996 when he retired from the US Army Reserve as a Staff Sargent . I love military history and the stories about it. On a last note for this post I want to thank all that have served from the bottom of my heart your service is greatly appreciated and I can't say it enough thank you all.

Hey Socnet

Hey everyone, I'll keep this short.
I had a prior life as a 19D. Participated in the invasion of Iraq and another subsequent deployments. I now am now an 18B. I was reincarnated and born in the hollows of Camp Mackall during an event called SFAS. I was a cold miserable birth full of pain and suffering. Pretty sure my mother died. I was then taken in and raised by wolves in 5th SFG.
I decided I wanted a break and then quickly realized how much I missed them. Now I am in 20th SFG. I have about 14 years of active service now. Glad to be on the board and I hope I can contribute in some way.

Good Morning

Have had a long career in the USN and USA, 4 years in submarine service; got out and finished college. Got into law enforcement and received a call asking if I like to go backpacking, skiing, camping, etc. Replied yes! "Have I got a deal for you." was the recruiters response. Got into Co B, 3/12th SFG(A), Ft. Lewis and went to abn school at 36. Only hard Abn school ever...was at Missoula, MT May 18, 1980 (Mt. St. Helens blew up and did ground week in 1/2" of Mt. St. Helen's ash.) Ended up on a cold weather, mountain team going to Alaska - Brimfrost '89. A real eye opener. Wainwright was 49 below (ambient) then it got cold. Dropped to 85 below while there. Was good to get back to Ft. Lewis. Went to SGM Academy, Class 44; on to USASOC, Current Ops, and final assignment was 350th CACOM, Pensacola. Retired after a total of 32 years, 24 active, 8 USAR. Life is good.

Sirs,
My name is LT. Tony Thomann. I am a firefighter here in Florida, 23 years on the job. I am looking for information on my older brother, Ronald Thomann, now deceased, who served in UDT in the 50's early 60's. He was a Korea an Vietnam veteran, twice awarded the bronze star and awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal. I am looking for any information on what team or teams he was on, what deployments or missions he participated in, really anything at all. He was pretty closed lipped about his service.

Arteste, your best course of action would be to PM "Frog" and ask him to look at the database. It may show at least his first Team assignment post-training. Also it may be a wise idea t have one of the mods here redact your name from your intro.

Hello!

My name is TJ. I'm not in the military, but my dad is a retired career Naval officer (aviation navigator). I'm here to find confirmation on a friend of mine who says he is a former SEAL.

Good morning all,

My name is CJ. I'm an Army Civilian working presently in Logistics. Since 2010 I've been shuffled around quite a bit but I've had contact during my time with some members from SOA and TAPO. Prior to me working in this field my father first worked with a number of your folks in Central America back in the 90's. I registered here to get to know the community better.

Hello, and thank you for accepting me into the community. Like some others, I was looking for contract work overseas when I ran across this site. And, I felt right at home after reading a few of the posts...especially in the "How Not to Post" section.

My History:
4 Years - Jul01-Jul05 - Active Duty Army - Airborne Infantry (11B1P) - Full Honors Casket Bearer - 1st of 3rd US INF BAT, The Old Guard (TOG) - Ft. Myer, VA. ETS'd as an E-5 with an EIB & GPB.
2 Years - Aug07-Jun09 - Army Reserves - Intel Analyst (No School) - 3300 DET 1 STRAT Intel Group - Ft. Belvoir, VA

10 Years - Jul05-Present - Contracting:
7 Years Armed Security - DC area
3 Years CI Overseas - Saudi Arabia, Burundi & Afghanistan

I wanted to be gung-ho and high-speed in the military like many new recruits and ended up being able to honor those who sacrificed more than I ever could...not for their country, but for their fellow man.

When I got out and got the chance to go over and do my part, I did. After my youngest was born, I came home to help my wife raise him to a suitable age...it has been hard as hell maintaining that level of security in civilized environments (weight gain, depression, etc.). Now that he's old enough, I'm again looking for long term overseas contracts that allow vacations every 3 to 4 months.

Again, thank you for accepting me into the community. I look forward to reading more informative and entertaining posts.
