Welcome Marine, there's a few comm types on here. Do yourself a favor, read the rules & regs of the site, abide by them and as told to me when I joined, "read more, post less". Are you at Lejeune or Pendleton?

Thanks WGH, im one of those guys who reads everything before signing.

I live by the advice my dad told me years ago "you have two ears and one mouth, use them proportionally" The same applies online for me.

Im at Lejeune.

Hello Everyone. Just joined SOCNET. No military experience, I work for a large law enforcement agency as a civilian. I very much wanted a military career but my eyesight prevented that from becoming a reality. I'm looking forward to reading and learning a lot here.

Thanks for the approval. I'm a disabled veteran, served five years active duty in the Navy.

I mainly joined up on this site to try to get more information on an friend who passed away 22 years ago, a month before I enlisted.

I also want to give a big thanks to all our SF/Spec Ops guys that did what had to be done and also those still doing it.
