Introduction

Hi my name is Kelly,

I've gotten into government contracting in the last 5 years. I spent 8 months in Kuwait supporting MARSET and APS 5 MATV resets as a mechanic . I also spent 2 years supporting the State department in Baghdad from 2015-2017 as a electrical specialist and light vehicle maintenance lead. I'm getting ready to go back over to Iraq again up North this time under the support side of WPS II. It seems like once you get into contracting it's hard to get out, working stateside is boring in comparison.

Been scanning this board for a long time. Nobody special here, just served 24 years in the army and retired a crusty old 1SG. I look forward to continue monitoring this board and possibly getting involved in some of the conversations. I did manage to put my knees in the breeze for several years.

Hello! Civilian here, and I am the first to admit I have no military background.

I've spent the last 24 years as a civilian contracts manager working for companies providing support to SOCOM, NAVSEA and AFPC.

I'm here primarily to listen and learn, and hope to contribute where appropriate.

Thank you for allowing me to join. I spent some time as a line medic in the 101st, before making my way to San Antonio to help run training for BOLC/AIT students, among the other things I was fortunate enough to do there.

I'm happy to be on here, and to have the access to the level of knowledge this board contains.

Iím very glad to have been able to join this group of professionals in an online format. I have served in the Infantry in one way or another for 16 years. Did several tours in both the Iraq and Afghan Wars. I hope to use socnet to keep current on things and connect with comrades.

The other man is probably in his 40s from CT Matthew Dillon who also states he was a Navy Seal. I have loads of friends who have served with honor in Vietnam and the middle East. Thanks all for your service.
CSback, please watch the use and posting of proper names here. The site is open source and anyone can get your friends' info from your post.

My Intro

I have 6 years in the National Guard as an 88M for Aviation Support with a TS/SCI clearance which is crazy but was needed in the middle of my time. I was a young age of 20 when I got employed with my first contractor now on my third. I have extensive knowledge in logistics and warehousing. Hope to meet some great people on here.

Introduction

My name is Micheal.I enlisted in the Navy in 2001 and served a month. Got a ELMS for my vision. Went through BCNR and got my RE code changed. Reenlisted in 2004 and was discharged in November. (General Under Honorable Conditions.) Went to boot camp and then got orders to HM A School at Great Lakes. I was discharged for medical records discovered in the course of my SSBI. My recruiters advised me to withhold certain information. I am not proud of that choice, but I am proud to have worn the Navy ballcap.

INTRODUCTION

Greetings all,

I am a full-time college student. I plan to join the VA National Guard while completing my degree. After college, I hope to transfer to Active Duty--my goal would be to attend Rasp 1 for the 75thRR if possible. The Regiment has always been fascinating to me.

Thanks, guys!
