Military folks!!!

Ok everyone...a little bit about myself, i did 9 years in the Air Force and i drive a Ford Focus.

<applause>

I've been stationed at Dyess AFB, Kunsan AB, and Eielson AFB. I now live near Nellis AFB in Las Vegas.

How many other military folks are there that drive a Ford Focus? It does not matter what branch of service. Where are you stationed at? Is there anyone that's stationed anywhere on the west coast...i.e, Cali, Nevada, Washington, Oregon, Arizona?

Any Focus owners stationed at Nellis?


Support your troops! They deserve it!!!

First of all, thank you for your service!

As for car related events, I would start by checking the SCCA. They are based out of Colorado Springs. You also have Miller Motorsports Park near Nellis. So, I would look to see what open track events they have on the schedule.

A little expensive, but you won't regret it!

If that fails, since you are USAF, find a local golf course!

LMAO!!! I've heard that one before!

I was just looking for other Foci owners that have a background in the service like i did. Was kinda hoping there would be a few at Nellis.

LoL!!! I think we've all had to perform that additional duty :(

My background is in backshop avionics...non flightline...secured building, test station type of avionics. I'm currently in Iraq as a civilian government contractor working avionics on the UAV Predator. This is the "I'm gonna kill you" Predator that our ground forces love so much. I'll be home for a short break here soon and i'm definitely looking forward to playing with my car some more :)

Glad to meet you folks....keep'em comin'.

Hi,

I'm Canadian Military. I've served almost 3 yrs as a reservist before I joined the regular force. I was a Supply Tech for 5 years then remustered to Military Police which I was for 12 years. Now I am becoming a Commissioned Officer with the military paying for me to go to university. My wife is an army nurse and we both drive a Focus.
