Google Earth

Does anyone know the specific year of google earth views? Seems like maybe 2000. Sorry everyone, I somehow posted my intro outside the: first post goes here thread. Served in the Army (RA) 74-77, Army Reserves 79-80, Army National Guard (AGR) 89-92, Air Force (ANG) 80-84 and Air Force reserves (Tech) 89-89. Nope, never seen action in Iraq, etc. Too old for second Iraq and too young for Vietnam. Have lost all contact with former soldiers too. Guess everyone goes there separate way after out-processing. This web site is very well done. It's a great source of information and with any luck; I might bump into a friend or two from my past.

I have enlisted in the Navy and I am leaving in september of 2008. I am going be a rescue swimmer which will hopefully lead me to succeed in BUD/S training later on in my career. After the Navy, I want to be a firefighter.

I seemed to have skipped this step earlier so I apoligize if I have violated the protocol. I am a retired 11B and working in the Security field overseas. I am leaving my current contract soon and always looking for new opportunities. My replacement is the one who introduced me to this site and I am very impressed so far. Thanks for all the shared info.

incommin to rt nail

Greetings to all,

I was here a couple of years ago, at least it seems like a couple of years ago, under the handle of incommin. Last October I retired from the sheriff's office where I had been serving as a crime scene/ID tech.

I am a retired CSM with 24 years service. My experience with special ops is limited to a year with 5th SFG, CCS (MACV-SOG) in 1968-1968. I also served in the 7th and 10 Special Forces Groups. I am a published author with more books in the mill...... writing fills my days now along with shooting, fishing, and enjoying my family.

Thanks for letting me take part....

Hey Everyone, new guy here!

Hello,
I'm AE3 Hicker of VFA-122 at NAS Lemoore, CA. I started my military career in the Oregon Army National Guard as an Infantryman (11B.) I served in a Scout platoon for the 1/186 Infantry for 3 years before requesting release from the ARNG to go active duty Navy, so I could pursue my goal of becoming a SEAL. Being a Recon soldier really flicked a switch in me and I realized that I loved every part of the job and had to do it full time. So I looked at Ranger, Army SF, and SEAL, and decided that being a SEAL was the best choice for me.

While I was in the process of enlisting in the Navy, a buddy of mine enlisted under the SEAL Challenge contract. He ended up getting injured at BUD/S and was sent to the rate/place that the Navy needed him, without much say in it. This kinda got me thinking, and I didn't want the same thing to happen to me. So, I enlisted as an AE (Aviation Electricians Mate,) so that if I got hurt, or DOR'd, or whatever, I would at least have a choice in what job I did afterwards. Its a backup job I guess you could call it.

So, I'm doing my job for now, but am already working with my CCC and my CMC for orders to BUD/S. My command wants me to complete a year here first, so Hopefully I'll be heading to BUD/S next fall for the winter class.

I look forward to lurking around and gathering as much info and advice as I can about Special Operations over the next 9 months to a year.

Thank you for the space.
