Thanks for allowing me to be on your site. Couple of years in CCT and a few years in HUMINT, with some LE sprinkled in.

This is a small world. Someone will be along shortly to connect with you. Welcome to the site.

Thank you for letting me visit your house.

I make music for a cartoon called Red vs. Blue, an experience which deepened my appreciation for armed forces and military slang, oh and the people too.

I'll mostly be reading here, but if you need advice on things like buying a guitar for your kid or setting up a home studio, I'm happy to help. (No, not to make money, always buy used.)

I’m grateful for your service.

Introduction

I never served in the military which is a life regret of mine. No excuses. Life got in the way. Having 2 active military son-in-laws has certainly deepened my respect for all of the men and women serving our country.

As you could guess from my forum nickname, being a safety professional puts food on my table and keeps a roof over my head. I train as often as I can and try to be a squared away guy. To keep balance in my life, I "give back" to my community by being active in some groups that respond to disasters, an active participant in a state-wide SKYWARN group and serve on a SAR Team.

I suspect I'll do a lot of reading on this forum but will not likely be able to provide much to the conversations. One thing that I might be able to help someone with would be ham radio.

Much thanks to the moderators and folks on this forum for allowing me, an average Joe, the opportunity to learn from you.

An Introduction

Hello, thank you all for the allowing me onto these forums. I work in the fitness industry and do not have a background in the military. However, due to having family that has been in the military and a relative that served in SF I have had a high interest in it. I have entertained the idea of potentially enlisting if I do not find my career advancing within the next three years, and thought this site would be of interest to me to browse.

Interesting, sounds like your family and relatives have done well for themselves. Enlisting is a back up plan? Perhaps, what you learn from your Brothers and Sisters, while serving, is your primary plan in aiding your career after an awesome 4 year enlistment. Otherwise you are potentially marking time. Allow your enlistment to be your launching pad. BTW: an 11x contract (near term) could potentially land you a ~$40K bonus for career/fitness ambition. Go for it! .02

Hey y'all,

I'm a 19 y/o working as an EMT-B in Chicago, looking to join the military soon. Checking out a couple options ranging from PJs to SEALs, hoping this site can answer a couple questions. Thanks.

Welcome. Take the time to read the stickies, look around and get the lay of the land.

Enjoy!
