Welcome. I hope like hell that you introduce yourself that way.

"Hi, I'm Chris Ten Thousand! Nice to meet you."

No sarcasm. Hell it rivals Leroy Jenkins.

Intro

Hi everyone. This is my intro post. I am a former ranger from 1/75 and have joined this forum because I am in dire need of vetting someone who is claiming PJ and I am almost positive it is total BS. I did for deployments OEF and worked with some great PJ's. My name is Greg

Greetings and salutations;
That's how I began my service. Got into Army Security Agency in late 1970 when my heavy equipment school at Ft. Ord was full and ended up in computers, instead. After AIT, served as 34D20K1 maintenance in Thailand at 7th RRFS, managed to ets as Sp5. Have been heavily into computers and electronics ever since, working on the E4B Advanced Airborne Command Post as a Test Engineer, then 25 years in the field for Hewlett Packard. Retired in '03. I am not, nor do I claim to be SO, but knew a few of you fellows way back when. Permission to come aboard?

Hello folks.
Just joined. Not much to say about my short stint in the service. Enlisted in 98 as a 74G.. I'll wait while yall google that one. Re-upped a few years later to keep from going needs of the army when the deleted my mos and re-classed as a 25B. Spent a year in Kuwait and IZ, though 90% of it was on camp commando. ETS'd as a SGT. Nothing spectacular about me or my stint but yet I'm here.

Welcome! Don't denigrate your service- you've done something that 99.87% of American DONT do- earn their citizenship through service to others.

I guess the Army didn't many telecommunications computer equipment repairers when its easier to plug and play, huh?

Yeah.. taught component level board repair.. get to unit.. screw that pluck and chuck.

Dont misunderstand, I did my 8.. and i'm not denigrating more than intentionally making sure folks dont confuse me with someone who had a hard job You know you got it easy when Generals are forward of your position in war. When you go 1 year in a combat zone and not only dont fire a single shot (210 when I showed up, 210 when I left.. no change out) in agression, but never once took fire either. I had remf's forward of me.. but I did my part, and it was essential to the folks forward...

Hello...feels like home.

Greetings everyone,
I'm in the Denver-Metro area of Colorado, USA...former 82nd Abn. Infantry (CIB as a sniper) and am of Vintage age (early 50's ). RECONDO, Sniper School (including Police S/S)...back in the days of being a "Jungle Fighter".
After getting out as an E-5, I've had a long career in Law Enforcement...worked many assignments and wore a little rank as well. REALLY glad to have found y'all ---- I'm trying to transition from LE to perhaps doing a little contract work (never leaves your blood, does it??) and also enjoy hearing others' experiences in weapons, shooting, general ass-hat-ery, and can perhaps give some insight to others from having mixed it up on the "mean streets". And to GET some experience or hints from those who've gone where I'd like to go next. there ya have it.

Should have called myself Clark Kent. Former recon Marine (0331/0321) in RVN turned family man and history teacher. Now retired from everything. I miss my students but what I really miss is my chopped M-60. Thanks for bringing me on board.
