Welcome aboard Devil. You posted an intro before commenting on any posts so you started off on the right foot. What unit(s) did you serve with? Read the stickies, read more than you post, chime in when you have something of value to add to the conversation and don't step on any toes. Fairly simple rules, but some still fuck it up. Enjoy. S/F, Top

My name is Jerod. I joined the Army in 2002 whenever I was 17 and discharged in October of 2015. I started out as a Civil Affairs Specialist eventually re-classed to Infantry. I was assigned to a LRS ABN unit for the remainder of my career. 2 combat deployments. Looking for like minded people to share information and stories with. Currently I am a motorcycle technician in Texas. Looking forward to seeing what this site has to offer, thank you for the approval.

New member here. Civilian, but proud to live in the city that is home to the world's largest naval base, and near the home of the East Coast SEAL teams.

Joined because I have friends from that community, and because I have a possible case of stolen valor.

Happy to be onboard, but for obvious reasons I'll be doing a lot more listening than talking.

Hey DBS, a bit about you. Vague career path, hobbies, something.

Thank you.

Sure thing!

I'm a physician (anesthesiologist, to be specific). I'm also a staff writer for an English Premier League fantasy soccer blog. My wife of 25 years is a teacher. We have two kids in college and one in high school.

I enjoy obstacle course racing (Spartan Beast coming up this Saturday in South Carolina!), Muay Thai, bourbon, and craft beer.

I also enjoy recreational shooting (pistol, rifle, and shotgun, including a little bit of IDPA), and was privileged to receive a lot of my initial pistol training from the late Al Clark, who will surely be known to many here. (But please don't be misled--I have no delusions that I'm any sort of tacticool operator and I'm not here as a wannabe. Shooting just happens to be one of my hobbies.)

Anyway, thanks for having me--glad to be here.

How about a little background? Units, deployments, etc...

Thanks
