Sorry...I was just playin'. I would say most would think that would be a yes. Especially if you are a leg man. I like to spin, hike, do crossfit 1x week, and run. So I do get a lot of compliments on my legs. Hopefully they will be good enough to get me through the Death March Memorial!

Hello everyone,

I spent a few years in 5th SFG during the mid 80s as a Bravo and Echo. I do miss being around other SF guys. Civilian life has been so tame compared to the years that I spent in Group. Hope to find some old friends here. I went to many interesting places in the Mid-East and Africa. It seems that I'm more interested in communicating with SF types than anyone else.

I'll be spending time on the SOF medicine page trying to see if I can actually do anything with my ATP certification.

Hello all. I'm a bon-a-fide FNG and happy to admit it. My interest in your community came about when I began looking in to contract work overseas. I wanted to see what people were saying about it as no one in my circle really worked in that arena. So far your international deployment section has been my favorite place to check out and i've learned a lot.

In terms of my life experience---
I've been an EMT for 6 (going on 7) years as both an EMT and a Paramedic. I've worked both commercially and privately in CT, and had the WONDERFUL opportunity to work as a wilderness medic a couple years ago which further sparked my interest in 'austere environment care'...

I'm not lucky enough to think that because i'm on here a contract will magically fall in my lap, but i hope that if i lurk (read more post less) long enough i'll learn a thing or two.

Thanks

I am currently in the US Army, Airborne Infantry. Right now I am serving as a Squad Leader on the line. Also served as the ATL for a Sniper Section, and ATL for a Scout Team. I am very thankful for finding this website, I surfed the web for a long time until I came across this mecca. I will be ETSing next spring and am looking for information on overseas contracting for that is what I wish to persue. I also wanted to take the time to thank the moderators for donating their time to us and this site. Thanks a lot guys.

Hi,

I'm not in the Military (and never have been), but I have a question that I hoped I could get an answer for here... If I can figure out where to put it!



My background is engineering.

New here....

I am a former USAF weapons loader. I loaded munitions on B1's and F-16's. I ETS'd out of the Air Force and joined the Army as a tank turret mechanic. After 12 months of that crap, I went to SFAS. I am now an 18D assigned at Fort Bragg. I have been deployed in support of OEF three times.

Cool site!!

Hi, I was in the USN from 1991 to 1997. I was an Electronics Technician.
I served on the USS Florida when it was still a SSBN.
I am here to pass on one unfortunate piece of information, and then I will never post again most likely.
