Introductions to start

This is not for your typical FF intro. Let's do it the military way. What branch, station, how long you have been in, MOS/AFSC/Rate/ect, and what you drive of course.

I'm in the Army Reserve with the 401st Engineers and work as an Air Force civilian at Tinker AFB as an Aircraft Mechanic. I've been in 9 years now, both Air Force active side and Army Reserve. My MOS is 21C / Bridge Crewmember, my old Air Force AFSC was 2A152. And I drive a black 02 SVT Focus ZX3.

Im in my last year of ROTC until i get to graduate and become a butter bar for the US Army. I'm looking at doing branch detailing Infantry and then signal for the rest of the time. I love being in the military as you meet people and have a bond that you will not get elsewhere. I've gone to Airborne & Air Assault school which both were a good time. I highly recommend doing the rotc route because there's nothing like living the college life along with the Army.

I'm an E-5 in the Air Force with 7 total years in (6 active, 1 Reserve). I took a year break after active duty and signed back up last year. I work in Fuels at Dover AFB. Minus a few deployments and schools, I've been here since 2002. My civilian job is a night manager for a beer distributor.

I gave My 4 years to the US Army from 91-95 with the 160th based out of Ft Lost in the Woods(Leonard Wood), MO. Spent 17 months in and around Kuwait City for the Storm(MOS 15Y) keeping Apaches in the air. Now I just smile knowingly when I see one overhead.
Oh, and I happily drive an 07 ST/SAP for fun and an 06 Lincoln Town Car L-Series for work.
