Hello, appreciate you having me on the forum.

Did an 8 year stint with the Marine Corps Infantry and Marine Security Guard. Got out and did the contracting gig for about 7 years before coming home for good. Now I work for my local County Sheriff's Office.

Thanks again!

Cool careers you and your family have had. Can you expound upon your post? I think it's cool.

Reading your about me you stated that you were in a Vice/street crimes "type" unit. Simply badass. What was that like? Did the Vice/street crimes type unit have a name?

It was named the mobile enforcement team. Basically we deployed to high crime areas "to address quality of life issues" which translates to illegal narcotics investigations, prostitution ops, and providing support for drug unit ops. Often pulled to assist with search warrant executions. Alot of times we would develop operations plans and conduct vehicle and pedestrian take downs.

Greetings,
I'm not a military man but know of some past served and currently serving. I've had relatives in the navy and army. My grandfather retired as a chief and my cousin is currently enlisted army. Military runs in some of the family but never was my interest. Thank you for your service, though!

So, that was about your family.

What about you?

Well i know very little about the military but I'm just a civilian. Between work and home, I enjoy spending time either at the range, doing auto repair work with my step father or anything outside.

Hi,

I'm in conventional Army logistics for couple years and interested in moving into linguist positions and want to see if I should apply straight to SF or go into linguist first. I speak Arabic Levantine, Hebrew, Ukrainian, Russian. I know about opportunities all over Middle East as a contractor supporting SF but want to explore what I can do in the military since I have 1 year left on my contract.

Good evening,

I'm a civilian currently in law school who wants to have more insight as to how Judge Advocates can join Special Operations and what that sort of responsibility would entail. I'm always open to hear what you all have to say and I realize I had better tread lightly as a civilian here.

Hi everyone, I am a young college student in ROTC with a lot a heart but not a lot of experience or knowledge (that didn't come from the internet or an outdated textbook). Aiming for infantry branch.

I am looking forward to reading and learning from the collection of knowledge posted within this forum. Thank you everyone here for your service.
