Hello. I'm an IT professional from PA. I work as a developer for an online learning company. I don't have a military background myself but my father and stepfather were in the Army, my cousin and uncle were in the Navy, and I have somehow dated several Marines. I have great respect for all of you guys that keep us safe and free, and your families that support you.

Hello, I spent three years enlisted US Army during the early 1970s and followed that with a thirty year career in municipal law enforcement.
I deployed in OEF 11-12 as a LEP with MPRI...now called Engility, Inc. and was honored to work alongside soldiers of 2-27 and later 1-12 in Kunar Provence.

Hello everyone,

My name is *** (not important to anyone to tell), I was RA, NG and currently I work for an OGA. I served in Iraq alongside a SF LTC, and later in life I worked with some MARSOC fellas and few other HSLD folks. I work primarily in the tech industry providing both training support and raw collection for various folks who need it.

I am from Arizona, but currently live somewhere on the east coast.
I have been reading these forums for a while and figured it would be cool if I joined (that is if they let me since nothing to do with SF). I do appreciate the ability to be a member of this forum and will try my best not to fuck this up.

I would like to thank all of you that have served, regardless of capacity, for your service to our great nation. I know that’s cliché but I think it should be said. Either way I look forward to reading and possibly getting to meet or work alongside some of you, you never know, one day you might just end up in my org.

~Nospeed~

This is all too mysterious for me, and I just got a lesson from HDLS on the uses of the letters O, G, and A.

Bolded by me: Or you may end up in mine, or you are already in mine, and I just can't talk about it with you.

Read more, post less. We appreciate your gratitude, but no one cares about your working for an "OGA". Statements such as these do not ingratiate you to the membership here. Nor do I think we will be working for you.

Not much to tell. Spent my time in the 78th Engr Bn and closed down Karlsruhe in '91. Used my GI Bill to go to school at Oklahoma State and got my BS in ComSci and moved to SanFrancisco in late '95.

I co-founded the IDPA club in the Bay Area and was an avid competitive shooter from '96 to '06 but changed my priorities when my second daughter was born. Now I've got three girls keeping me busier than I've ever been in my life!

Hello SOCNET,

Registered a while back, haven't yet posted my introduction. Figured today was the day, after reading Nospeed's botch job.

No military experience. Just a late 20's finance professional who is a proud supporter of our service men and women. (Not with the yellow ribbon/flag on my car....rather time & money.)

Thank You all for letting me join the SOCNET community!

Welcome Aboard. Believe it or not, there's lots of family and SOCNETers in the Bay Area.

Hello

Good day everyone.
I am an older female who has had a lifelong interest in marksmanship.
I graduated high school the year before Nam ended, and I knew a lot of young vets who struck me as being very solemn and sad, from which I developed a soft spot for the military guys.
SO I support the USO, and it became a habit for me to read a lot of military histories, along with the Nam stories when they started coming, and now the Iraq and Afganistan stories.
I actually stopped in only to comment on a thread about someone I happen to know. But I've read some of what you all are saying, and I've found it interesting.
I wish you all the very best.
I thank you for your service.
And I fervently wish for everyone who serves to come home safe. Thank you for your valor and your dedication. I am one of many who appreciate you, even when we forgot to say it often enough.
