I almost swore I posted an intro but when running through my previous posts it was obvious I had not.

I am a college student here to learn more and soak in the knowledge from those who have been there and done that. Much respect to all, it's humbling being able to hear what America's finest has to say.

Introduction

Been lurking for a while...thought I would introduce myself.

I am former AF and retired LE. Now I teach which if my father is correct I have been promoted to my level of incompetency.

Thanks to those who are and have served this great country.

I've been in the Army a little over six years, I'm a 42A (HR Specialist). I've been stationed in D.C., , Germany, and now the infamous Fort Hood!! I've always been intrigued by Special Forces or the Special Operations realm in a whole simply because of their valuable and steadfast skills that make such a positive change in the world today that dwells in such negativity and political garbage. Thank you for letting be apart of this forum and I look forward to the wealth of knowledge I will take in.

Been a member here for quite some time and never posted... Almost forgot about the board until a buddy reminded me about it.
As my screen name says, I'm a retired SWCC CPO. SWCC school in 94. As I recall it was 94-2 or 2-94. Spent my time at SBU-12 NSWU-2 and back to 12. Retired in 07 and still work for the Navy as a GS at PAX.

Introduction

My name is Eric and I live in Atlanta. I wanted to introduce myself as I intend to visit/post to this forum every once in a while.

By way of background I'm a retired Army Special Forces officer, having spent 20 years, two months and a handful of days on active duty. In addition I was also a Foreign Area officer (48B) specializing in Latin America.

Currently I'm an EMT-P working 911 in the city of Atlanta, as well as doing some medical/security contracting overseas when something interesting comes my way.

Other hobbies include triathlon, my season just ended last week with Ironman Louisville; the Highland bagpipes; all things Japanese; and a Zen Buddhist. I'd be happy to discuss any of that with anyone should the interest arise.

Nonetheless, health and safety to all.

Sláinte,
-eric

Hi, my name is Dione. I'm new to computer use, so please bear with me. I'm trying to follow the rules correctly.
I'm in awe of the elite of the elite Navy SEALS. I need to find out if my daughter's ex boyfriend was a SEAL. He's stalking her and our family. He lied about most things in his life and it's important for us to know if he's an imposter. I'll give more details when you'll ask for them.
Your help will be appreciated.
Dione (ddsls66)

Howdy, glad to be admitted to the site. I a student in college, working as a apprentice bartender. I have no military credentials, but I am working on that.

HOWDY

Hello all, thanks very much for access to your site.
I'm an AF SERE bubba; spent most of my career in WA state training high risk folks in one part or another of Code of Conduct Training. I was one of the guys in black for much of that time.
Went to AFSOC at Hurlburt with the 6SOS in 99, retired from there a few years back.
Enjoy reading all the threads and all the help that is offered.
Thanks again.

Hi folks, I was with the last graduating class of the SF Q Course as an 18B and was told about the site by a current member. My nickname was given to me while in Robin Sage during a particularly shocking fence crossing in the middle of a lightning storm. I hope to get smart through you folks and to share the info that I have.
Thanks
