Looking forward to it!

The Air Force counts as military - right guys? Right?

450 Squadron up in Petawawa, Ontario here - work as a technician on the CH-147F. Fun times.

Enlisted 1992 with USAR 337th Combat Support Hospital Ft. Benjamin Harrison Indianapolis Indiana as X-Ray Specialist. I didn't know it at the time but the base was slated for closure with the 1991 Base Realignment and Closure Commission (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Benjamin_Harrison). Result was, after 13 months active duty training at Leonard Wood (Basic), Sam Houston (AIT Phase 1) and Knox (AIT Phase 2), I went back to a unit winding down. Short of enlisting full time, moving to another state with a relevant unit or getting another MOS, career over. DD214 arrived in the mail the day after the towers went down, retroactive to enlistment date of August 6th, which was 8 years after initial enlistment. Made PFC like everyone else.

Funny thing is, I settled for X-Ray specialist after nearly enlisting in the late 80's for WOFT program. I was accepted in everything except initial Class 1 flight physical did not pass due to eye stygmatism. I was actually at the flight field at Knox having spoken with the unit commander having agreed to me joining their unit, which was a reserve unit. I believe it was the 229th Aviation Regiment (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/229th_Avia...ed_States)).

Anyway, not much of a career or story but it's nice to walk down memory lane. Make that shuffle.

In the Air force going on 14 years in August. Working on A-10 engines. I tear them all the way down and rebuild them back up. Been to Bagram, Afghanistan and Korea. Wouldn't have it any other way.
Apparently, you're supposed to put something important here that signifies something special to you.

Yes. British Army. No operational tours.
The Rifles (infantry). Still a Reservist. Consulted all sorts of interesting places for PMC training organisations and previously worked in a low-level training capacity for all sorts including SF... which was an awful job :-)
