Intro

Hey everyone, new to SOCNET. Not former military but I'm enlisting at the beginning of the year in 2018 and am going the Spec ops route. Been a dream of mine since a little kid and I'm just here to make sure I make the right decisions and get any info and advise I can from the people who've been there, done that.

Welcome 5.56. If your serious about enlisting and going in SOF you came to the right place. Read the posting rules, then read a lot before you post. Lots of old threads concerning your interest.

You will be given great advice from our SOF experts in most any area.

Hey Gents,
First off, thanks to SOCNET and it's administrators for allowing me to join this forum/site. Former USMC, 0331. Uneventful career, Iraq in 2007-2008 (Fallujah) and hit the 15th MUE in 2010-2011. Got out in September of 2012. Looking to expand my knowledge in the overseas contracting along with the domestic gigs. Gain and retain as much knowledge through you gentlemen who have been into this for a while.
Thanks again,
Dango

Thank you Admins for approving my request.

I spent 12 years in LE and now almost 9 in DoD contracting ( engineering and manufacturing...not security ). Just keeping up with the industry and occasionally posting DoD related jobs opportunities.
