USCG 96-2001 (I know, I know)
Waiting on a waiver for ARNG. A waiver because I am divorced and have kids. The guy next to me was waiting on a waiver too... For a felony conviction (regular Army). Nice to know I am in the same category.
Anyhow, 11B, 172nd Infantry (Mountain), Scout platoon, exicted about Afghanistan deployment next year.

I have said this before i want to SAY THANKS TO ALL WHO ARE SERVING AND WHO HAVE SERVED. I didnt get that privilige i ruined my knees playing football instead but thanks to all the guys and girls who did serve i was able to play football in a safe and free country. My dad served and i couldnt be more proud of my dad then i am. It took me 29 years to relize that

+1 on that ^^ Post! Thanks to everyone who has, or is, serving this fine country!

We take military service VERY seriously in our house.

I didn't conventionally serve. I went to work for the DoD and spent time ( 2 years ) stationed in South Korea & Japan, along with a VERY brief trip to S. America that I would prefer to completely forget about.

I was stationed with the "in-service" troops, worked with them during the day, drank ( too much ) & ate with them at night, along with spending many, many hours studying the same video, audio, thermal images and recordings of the enemies of our country. I was issued gear, and spent time with the troops on the firing range and with them in very, very primitive, "basic" training for the computer, admin and IT folks. I was by no means a snake eater, nor did I ever go on a LuRP.

I don't consider my service on the same level as those that were preconditioned to be the most awesome fighting force on the planet, so I rarely speak of it. My job there was to help improve both the intel, and the MWR of the troops for their "on-base" IT backbone.

Again, A HUGE Thank You to all the troops of our great nation! Having spent time with you, I know that your dedication is far more than "wanting tuition for school" or "looking for a way out" that is commonly associated with the mainstream reports.

Were you one of 'those' DoD contractors? I worked with those guys a few times, quite a few of them really liked Nighthawks.
