Hey all,
Been surfing the site for a while now, getting tips on random things (watches, knives, good boots/shoes, all the random stuff you guys have quality opinions about...and funny opinions about)
I've been doing LD shooting for about 8 years, and have done some IT contracts for various bases. Thought I'd finally join, instead of lurking around.

Thank you for having me, I'll try not to be too much trouble.

I'm Paul from Indiana. My fiance is a Gold Star mom and our story about Dakota was featured on The Vanished Podcast. We were informed there was a link in this forum concerning that show and we wanted to take a look. His name was Dakota Stump.

Intro to socnet

Good morning all,

I have been using socnet for information regarding contracting and just recently had my profile approved. I was a cavalry scout with 1-7 cav out of Fort Hood with 2 deployments to Iraq . Got out after 5 years to build my family and now have an opportunity to contract. Interested in any information and insight on that subject. There is already a lot of information on the threads but PM’s are always welcome!

Thanks again!

Intro

Good evening everyone.

My name is Andrew. I was a squad leader with 2nd Bn. 7th Mar. Golf Co. Deployed to Sangin in Afghanistan, JTC in Jordan, and Al Asad in Iraq.
I'm currently out now, settled down with my wife, and attending school. An important career goal of mine is to write fiction as a platform geared towards treating veterans with PTSD.

Thanks for having me. I like the way you guys do things around here.

Thanks. I was at Fob Shamshir (previously called Inkerman), from Sept. '12 to Mar '13. We were the last ones out of that place and demilled it before we handed it over to ANA. Were you in Sangin too?

Hey fellas,
My name is Aaron. I'm a Marine veteran. I served from 2006 to 2011. I was part of Marine Corps Security Force Company (now Battalion) and 1st Battalion 4th Marines. My primary MOS is 0311 and I have a secondary MOS of 8152. I deployed with the 15th MEU in 2010.

I was turned to this site from a fellow veteran who is a coworker. He said other vets here can help, or atleast give advice on finding better employment opportunities. I currently work as a Armed Nuclear Security Guard with Securitas, but I'm very ambitious and would like to work for DOE as part of their SRT Task Force or find a high paying Supervisor position with a private security company.

Cheers
