Hi. I have no military service, so those of you who do, thank you! I never really gave that much thought to special operations until earlier this year. I work for the Army Corps of Engineers and deployed to SE Asia on a mission to recover American MIA remains from the Vietnam War. While there, I worked with some great people who are currently serving, including EOD and pararescue guys (and women). Hearing some of the stories of the work they do was scary and amazing at the same time. So much respect! After I got home, I casually mentioned the trip to someone I had just started seeing and he mentioned he had been a SEAL. I've since realized there are a lot of fakers, though he doesn't really fit the profile for any of them.

Anyway, those have all got me interested and I found this board and have been lurking around and thought I'd join even though I don't really have much to contribute.

Thanks for having me!

I have no military service and no military affiliations. I do thank those of you that have served this great country! I found this site while searching ways to verify claims of service as a SEAL. I firmly believe a family member has been lying about his service, which angers and saddens me.
Thanks to those who serve with honor and integrity!!

Introduction

Hello everyone,

I'm a civilian, currently training for USAF STO selection (there appears to be a civilian route now, according to the application: http://www.24sow.af.mil/Portals/80/Documents/STOappAugust2016.pdf?ver=2016-05-18-160946-443).

I do a lot of CCT and PJ pool workouts, run and lift as much as I can around my work schedule, and basically eat and live like a savage year-round. I'm here to read about others' experiences in their respective pipelines and careers post-training. Thanks for having me.

Sure you are. Before you know it years will pass and you still find yourself here with a gazillion post. This site is contagious.

Prayers for all those that defend freedom..

Hello all members. I am Robert. I served 3 years in the Army's 82nd Airborne as Stinger missile gunner/team chief. I have worked in DOE security for 6 years and was a police officer in Texas for 5 years. I am applying for many international security, but have ran into some roadblocks and could use some expert's advice (from recruiters/former PSS/etc..). I look forward to communicating with all of you, and I thank you for defending freedom.

Yes, English is my first language. Apparently my keyboard couldn't keep up with my typing.
