Hello All,

I'm a long time reader that's finally decided to post an intro.

I served in the Army 99-09 as a commo guy with a couple OIF tours. I'm currently a GS civilian and enjoy reading this site.

Introduction

My name is Chris. I am a Narcotics Detective with a certain law enforcement agency assigned to the special units division. I've heard about SOCNET through my twin brother who was recently in AFOSI. We both are currently still in the law enforcement field. I figured I could use SOCNET as a tool or for advice or even maybe give some advice. I currently reside in North Carolina. Nice to meet everyone.

Chris, you should edit your personal credentials on your 'About Me'. Wouldn't be hard to get PID on you especially since you posted your Department, your badge# and we know you are Chris working in narcotics. Just trying to help. Welcome.

Just wanted to say Hello.

I had an uncle that was a B24 pilot that died during WWII and have researched the circumstances of his missions including the final one in which he crashed. His missions involved dropping Norwegian agents behind German lines in Norway in the dead of the night during CarpetBagger runs.

I have the ultimate respect for those that have served their country including my three older brothers who served during the height of the cold war. Came of age at the end of the VietNam war so I never served myself.

Have been a long time reader of the Socnet posts and always value the comments made, well almost always.

Welcome aboard. Had never heard of Carpetbagger, so I ran over to Wikipedia to get an overview. Fascinating!

It was interesting when I researched it back in 2000 and 2001. There wasn't that much info out about them at time. But have noticed a lot more stuff is available now.
This link is to the town in the Orkney Islands where he crashed.

I'm aviation journalist researching Light Attack aircraft for Smithsonian Air & Space magazine. I've worked from the high Arctic to southern Africa and from Asia across US to Europe. I have stick time in everything from powered parachutes and gliders to C130s and F15s. I managed to throw up while in the back seat of most of the fast mover rides but was lucky enough to get to the barf bag first.

Spec4

I'm a retired Firefighter.
I started training group in March 1969, 12B.
I was assigned to Company B, 6th Group through July 1970.
There were lots of WW2, Korea and multi tour Vietnam vets, I learned a lot from them. (hand salute)
Called into the Smaj. office and told to report to HALO school the next morning, graduated, May 1970.
Not chosen after volunteering for what later became The Son Tay raid.
Assigned to the 8th Group, detachment B4, Sept. 1970.
I spent all my time at Fort Sherman, made three night jumps into the jungle each time to spend 30 days in the bush and helped with the "Jungle Expert" school.
I was discharged one month before my 21st birthday.

My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul.
