Introduction

Greetings! I served with 3/75, The Old Guard, JIEDDO and the RTB during my career. I also was in the WVANG with the 19th SF Group while I attended WVU. I now work for a company called Quiet Professionals, LLC on the DoD contract side of the house. I am privileged to be able to talk with and work with SOF professionals on a daily basis. Let me know if I may ever assist, and I look forward to hearing from any old buddies out there. -Dave

Welcome all.

Just think about PerSec at all times. You can ping a mod/admin to change your screen name if at all unsure.

Introduction

Hello All,

I am a medically discharged submariner, a nuke. Got out just a smidge before my six years were up. Mainly I have come to this site because I have someone at my college claiming to have been a SEAL. Since I am proud of what I did in the service and since then I am a little worried that this is stolen valor.

A little more about me, used the VOCREHAB program to go to college and got a bachelors with a couple of minors simply because I wandered around a little bit. After about 10 or 15 years went back to school and got a couple of master's. I have worked in the music business, banking, transportation, and now higher ed. Since my fellow co-worker is the director of security I am going to ask for him to be checked out.

Appreciate your time and for those of you who are or were special operations I really am thankful that you stood up as warriors.

Introduction

Greetings Everyone,

Originally from the Midwest.

Currently working with USG vendor(s), maintaining safety/security abroad for foreign service personnel. When not occupied with my employment, hunting and motorcycles are the focus. I owe everything I have been, am currently doing, and anything I intend to accomplish, to my upbringing in that gypsum mining town in Iowa ... and the United States Marine Corps.

More to follow.

S/F

'Flatbedder'

I'm XXXXXX XXXXXX located in the greater San Jose, CA area. I've been interested in security issues, mainly computer security, for 20+ years. I have zero military experience, but would like to think I may have a bit to contribute here and there. Mainly lurking, but hopefully helpful from time to time. My Ph.D. is in economics if you need some data crunched.

Doc,

Please go here and ask that your user name be changed to something other than your name.

If this poster had a penis instead of a vajay-jay he would already have been corrected for typing like this is a twitter site for teenagers.

Welcome aboard.

We haven't found out if she is hot or not yet.


Besides, if we were really that uptight we would have kicked your ass off of here years ago.
