Hi Everyone..

I am posting my intro here since I could not locate a designated posting section on the bulletin board. I apologize if this is not the correct placement.

Hi to Everyone,

My name is Tina and I am involved with a man in SF who is currently deployed. I came across this site when searching the web for information on SOC and SF. I have had a lot of questions come up since he left that unfortunately I cannot get answered from him while he is away.

After reviewing some of the treads on this site, I decided to register myself as some of the posts have been very enlightening to me and I am hoping to get a better insight on SOC and SF that may help me during this deployment.

I must say that I love your blunt open humor on this site. God Bless you wonderful Dominant MEN!!!

Thanks for all you do!!

Where i served out the rest of my career. All my time abroad has been in the Middle East, i know Afghanistan like the back of my hand and Iraq pretty well. I'm trying to secure another contract OS, so if anyone can help please let me know, because i'm struggling to find good contacts. Cheers and its a pleasure to know my SF Brothers.

I am looking at getting into contract work, mainly as a trainer and was given this site by a friend as a good way to get a heads up into ways to obtain work.

Cheers.

Was 82nd from 80-85, ACB2 from 90-96, MNARNG from 6/07-12/07 and just reenlisted to go 38B on the reserve side.

Doing my due diligence - getting info and resources.

Greetings and all that. Thanks for running this site, it's pretty amazing. I was an active duty enlistee 18X, 83-86, last duty assignment was 18E30 A-3-10. Then I, well, became an officer, in the reserves. In hindsight not the best choice.

Now I work as a Pol Sci professor at University of Michigan. Go Blue.

Hello and thanks for the site approval. I am a former CTR2 that was stationed at NSGA Yokosuka in a direct support billet most of my Naval career. In bootcamp I was slated to goto EOD school but dislocated my shoulder really bad which stopped that from happening. I was medically discharged in 2004 because they wanted to deploy me and my shoulder didnt recover fast enough post reconstructive surgery. After my discharge I have worked as a contractor with the USMC CoC program, JFCOM J28 ISR programs and now am going to NETCOM C4i. I am also a Army reservist and am rated as a 35L CI Agent attached to the 301st Reserve BN . In the reserves I hope to get Airborne and RIP. I have worked with SOF in support roles during active duty and as a contractor and would love to join their ranks.

-Dan

Welcome aboard all.

CTR_Settite, it's good to see another former CT on here. FYI there is a lot of good G2 on this sight (use the search feature), which might help with your aspiring career path.

Good luck.

FNG here

Aco 1/75 from Dec 2001 until Dec 2002 (OEF I), Released For Medical to shit hole 3rd Infantry Division from Jan 2003 until May 2005 (OIF I-apparently, medically unfit for the 75th isn't necessarily medically unfit for Big Army).
Currently drawing my disability check from the VA while rehabing myself and (either the smartest or dumbest thing I've ever done) currently pursuing a Commission along with my BA and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
I'll probably be the only douchebag cadet sporting a Scroll on my right shoulder. ACU's are so gay.
