Good day everyone!

I am currently a civilian, turning 26 next month, but I've been trying to rid myself of the disease ever since high school. Family obligations and loyalty to friends have taken me through the roller coaster that is living in China and building a startup. However the light at the end of the tunnel shines bright; almost vested and wrapping up my last project. I am hauling my ass back stateside in Feb and looking up my local recruiter.

I cannot remember the last time I was so nervous about something!

This is my introduction :

My name is Jim Parrish, a close and dear friend of mine who happens to be a retired S.E.A.L team member (circa Vietnam era) and a fellow Masonic brother is looking for a Springfield M1A with a day/night scope at a reasonable price. I have accepted the responsibility of the search for such a prise as he is very near and dear to me and the rest of his family. Dan Holland is his name, and if you served with him, I would and I'm positive that he would love to hear from you. He has been battling cancer from Agent Orange that was so liberally applied during thenaforementioned "Conflict".

While talking about our favorite firearms he mentioned that if he could find the aforementioned rifle at a pric that he could afford, it would make him happier than anything.

I'm am not trolling for an inexpensive rifle here, I want to make this happen for this national treasure with whom I've had the personal pleasure to make friends with. He would like a full on , National Match grade rifle and scope.

I want nothing more than to find it for him.

Thanks for your time and service to our great country,

James Parrish
Xxxxxx

Any help locating the rifle he is looking for would be appreciated, thank you and God Bless

ברוך הבא. Like you, I am one of the guests here from the IDF. There are a few of us.

Sounds like you managed to do a lot in just a few years of service. Good for you. And a degree, too! In my time, the IDF only sent officers through university. Combat officers had to wait a few years into their 'professional' contract before they got to do it. That's a very nice perk for you!

Good luck with your service in the USA.

I was born and raised in the Israeli country side and in my youth I was and athlete and martial artist, nothing too glorified though.

Upon arriving to the age of 18 like every Israeli citizen I enlisted in the IDF, volunteered and was selected to go through the course of an Airborne commando undercover unit, and after a grueling year and half of training I graduate the course successfully. Unfortunately the call of duty came many times and i gained combat experience in various region like Lebanon Gaza Strip Syria west bank Egypt etc. I finished my service in the IDF after few years as a SSG.

During my military service I received a B.A in middle eastern studies/Islamic studies and became proficient in several languages including Arabic

I moved to U.S fell in love with the ppl and the land and decided that before I can exploit the land I need to give it a service, so I signed an 11x option 4 contract. Im shipping out to FT Benning 20160315 as an E-4. Unfortunately I'm a resident and not citizen yet, so I couldn't request option 40. So I will get my citizenship at OSUT and work my way to earn RASP slot during or after AIRBORNE school, due to my prior service, experience in the middle eastern theater and language/ academic skills I choose to serve and do my part, again.

During my IDF service I trained with few Unit from USSOCOM including the SF and the 75thRR (anybody who was in israel between 04 to 10 pm me pls ). so serving my new country when i hace you guys tp my left and right to watch my 6, will be a dream, privilege and a feeling of closing the circle.

As I'm writing this post people are getting stabbed and shot in israel, and our enemies are plotting against us
As the bible say: "if someone coming to kill you, arise against him and kill him first"

I could write more but I wanted to be concise, Respectfully, sincerely and god bless yall

From one Israeli guest to another - welcome. You have an interesting career path, I hope you succeed.
I hope I'm not out of line is saying that this is a great site and your time here will be most enjoyable if you remember that on this board, we (Israel and IDF) are not the center of the universe.

Good luck.

I must know the ways of the "contractors creed", please expound upon the mystical sounding "contractors creed" and why we must learn it. Teach me Obi-Wan

Thank you, and welcome to Socnet.

Hello All,

I was a Land Combat Electronic Missile Repairer on active duty for 11 years. Got out to finish college, decided to go PSYOP on the reserve side. Since I'm a cadet with prior experience and we don't have a LT, I am currently the acting detatchment OIC. Looking to learn all I can about leading Soldiers and PSYOP. Units I've been a part of are: 173rd BSB/2-503, 101st 1-506, 391st CSSB, 1ID 299 BSB, now in 362nd TPC.

Thanks,
BnR

Simple interests

I'm a full-time Corrections Officer, a firefighter/EMT, a father, and a firearms enthusiast. I enjoy assembling AR-15's in my spare time, and reading as much as I can about guns and history.

Researching Ranger medics

Hi. My name is Sarah and I'm writing an article for publication in the AMEDD Journal on Ranger medics. I work for OTSG and my boss is a Ranger PA. I'm hoping to gather useful information, stories and details I can use in my article. I'm also looking for info on Doc Donovan. I have a great story about hoe he walked for 2 days across the desert in Kuwait on a broken foot, alone, to get to an aid station. How you find your way in the desert I can't imagine but I have another article I might want to include that story in. I understand that he's still working, but retired from the military. I would be grateful if someone would direct him to me, or has first hand knowledge of the story. Anyway, I'm not here checking up on anyone or snooping, you'll be able to read the published article in a few months. My boss is speaking at a conference on the subject in March so I have to be at least approved for publication by then. I'll post this same stuff in a new thread to collect the info. Thank you all for your service, bravery and sacrifice. I remain eternally grateful.
