I would like to start by saying hello to all and thanks for letting me be apart of the board.

3 years in service
34 yrs old

Yes I joined late in life at 31. No regrets at all...

Oh and one other thing, I am not your stereotypical MI weenie, No World of Warcraft or any other MI weenie stuff here. MI is great but DAMN they are a different breed to say the least. Especially the damn linguists!!! And I'm a linguist!!! WTF!!!

Good evening all,

I'm currently in the Marine Corp reserves drilliing until Jun 2012.

Exploring possibilities within 18x, but will most likely be unable to pursue them due to Prior Service business rules. I like working out, motorcycles and reading(military history).

Thank you all for taking the time to contribute all of the guidance and information here on this online community.

Hello all I'm currently stationed in Alaska with 25th ID. I had posted an intro into introductions IV, but I guess it got dumped. Thanks to everyone who runs this board, it has helped more than just about any other resource.

Hello, my name is Robert, I’ve been a member here for almost a year. My original intro disappeared as well as my post count reset to zero. So to be on the safe side I’m reposting my intro. I currently hit my 18 year mark in the military. My first three years were with the Navy Reserves and then I transferred over the National Guard back in 1997.

I started out as an Engineer (21R Interior Electrician) moved over to Military Intelligence back in 2005. I worked active duty National Guard back in 2003 with the Counter Drug Program. It was a great job but only lasted me for three years. But thanks to the National Guard’s buddy system and a little nepotism, I was able to land an AGR job with my current unit.

I posted my intro back in November but it has disappeared so I'll post it again.

My name is James and I'm currently a college student. In the future I plan on applying to OCS and developing the situation from there. Hopefully I'll one day earn the right to wear the green beret.

I posted my intro back in December 2011. It looks like the thread has been deleted.

I am proudly enlisted as an 11X and I go to OSUT on 20120828. I plan on applying to go to SFAS before the year is over.

I wanted to thank all those quiet professionals who have served and who are on this site sharing their insight into a really tough mos. I am a college graduate with a recreation degree and I am currently in DEP for the 18x program and am really excited to have my limits tested. This is my first post and I will take THE REAPER's advice and go gray so that I can get a feel for how you all interact.

Hello to all and thanks for having me! I am 23 years old and I am a PS 82nd (2/504) guy. I was (still am ?) a 25U(commo) and deployed once to Iraq. I plan to re-enlist into the NG SF pipeline and I am here to observe and absorb as much useful info as possible. Im from Providence, RI and have my sights on Aco 2/19th SFG(A) as my "dream job". But, for now that will remain a dream. My current goal is to do whatever it takes to prepare physically and mentally for SFAS. Any like-minded individuals, preferably close to my location, who would like to share a word or two, feel free to PM me. Thanks and I look forward to seeing you all around the forum, and abroad as well! Im gonna go do me some PT ! Later!
