Hey all,

Its LRS Guy, I used to be on here allot form 2004-2013 or so. But life got in the way and I was spending way to much time on the internet. I've continued to do some overseas work and stayed in the Texas Army National Guard. I'm currently the PSG for the Mortar Platoon of the 1st Bn (Abn) 143rd In. We are the 3rd Infantry Bn in the 173rd Abn Bde. just happen to be in the Guard.

I got back on Socnet for professional reasons, I'm not a 11C, but a 11B who is really loud and got picked to take the Mortars because they needed a experienced, loud mouth E-7 in that Platoon. I'd like to communicate with my 11C brethren to bounce some questions off of. Ideally they are a 11C in 82, 173, 4-25th or 75th Mortar NCO's or have been recently.

This will likely be the last time I will be a PSG, so I want to go out strong and leave this Platoon better than I found it.

Regards

LRS Guy

Willkommen in unserem Haus. I spent a fair amount of time working with 2/251 at Calw back in the early to mid-1980s. The battalion commander was Oberstleutnant Digutsch, a very tall and bespectacled hard but competent man, who would have fit in nicely at Crete in May 1941 or Monte Cassino in March 1944. Also, you guys had some of the finest NCOs I've ever had the pleasure to work with.

Finally, I have to lodge a complaint because the 3-years I was stationed at Schwabisch Hall (Dolan Baracks), basically from 19-22 years old (my formative drinking years), I became accustomed to drinking awesome German beer. This effectively eliminated any hope that I could be satisfied living here in the States while drinking our swill that we call beer.

Greetings,

US Army, I’m prior enlisted infantry, after doing that for a while I decided it would be better on my body if I stopped walking everywhere so I put in a WOFT packet. After getting some experience flying around the world, I submitted a packet for 160th. My hobbies are spending time with my family and drinking beer on my patio.

USAF Woman Veteran here

Hello, I was in the USAF stationed at Eielson AFB, Alaska from 1980 to 1983, I Joined the USAF and was at Lackland AFB, Texas from November 8 until December 28, 1979. I was in the Munitions field, 46150, etc. Everything at Eielson AFB has changed not too long after I left. I left in 83 and the bomb dump closed not long after that, 91 I think. I read some information on it. Anyway, I am actually signing in here to see if I can find out about a man who I believe is a Liar, stating he is a Navy Seal from 1969 to 1975. I just want to find out if the man Steven Campbell who is 67 years old, and lives in Lafayette, IN was really a Navy Seal. He also states he joined the Navy when he was 15, that his parents lied to say he was 17 and he went to the Great Lakes Basic Training back in 1969. Anyway, that is the main reason I signed up here. I do not appreciate people who lie about serving our country. He says he did Seal training at some place in Tennessee, Memphis? Moffet something? Now I know there is a Moffet, California Air Base, but something for Seals around Memphis Tennessee? Sounds fishy to me. Anyway, I am a grandmother, married to a Navy Man, Jay Green, who actually was on the ship Sumner in 1968 or 1969, and he was over in the Vietnam area, in the ocean water. We have 16 grandchildren together. I guess that is enough for now, I will be happy to answer questions of anyone who asks. Thanks for this forum. Sheryl

Sheryl - Head on over to the Naval Special Warfare section of the forum and read the stickies. There is information there that you need to read. There is a thread over there that specifically addresses SEAL verifications.
