That can't be it. His profile clearly says, "Just here to help clear up some things".

I'm sure he'll be along any minute to do just that!

I thought Scout Sniper course was at Lejune? Do they have one on the west coast as well? I don't know about the Ranger Qual claim, I don't see USAF sending a SECFOR guy to Ranger. Maybe a TACP or something like that.

There are actually 3 schools for the scout sniper course for the marine corps. theres Camp Pendleton CA, Camp Jejune NC, and Quantico VA. And they shut down Hawaii's School about two years ago now. But I have also never heard of a USAF SECFOR guy being sent to Ranger.

Not unheard of for an AFSF guy to go to Ranger School:

All of you providing info are helping future posers.

Please refrain from adding in unless you're welcoming someone or questioning credentials.

Thanks

Have we ever wrung our hands over an FNG like this before? That only posted once and hasn't been on here since he posted his intro?

First, this is the Introduction thread- not "Hey, I'm fly fishing for contractors in a target rich environment" thread. Read the rules and contact the correct Moderator in the correct thread and ask permission to post your info.

Second, we're pretty much PERSEC wary here. Contact an Admin (Dark Helmet, Sharky, SilverBullet, Ace) about changing your screen name. It wont affect your ability to post or get people to pay attention to your post- especially for jobs.

Third, welcome.

Thanks

Hello Everyone,

Long time lurker, first time poster. Six years in the Guard as a 19D. Graduated college and have been riding a desk a few years now. Stealing knowledge from the community here, to make an informed decision when it comes time to ditch the desk full time.

Great community, look forward to future conversations.

I got permission from the admins to post. Everything I posted could be found in an google search. I'm not fly fishing for candidates. I just introduced myself and my background.

Please list your actual background instead of just WPS stuff.

Also, the permission you were given was to post that info in the jobs area, not in the introduction area.


Thanks
