First post, joined years ago but never completed the registration process.

Prior service in my profile for anyone who cares. Served under Reagan in an ELInt role. If you are active on any other forums you'll recognize my user name and biases.

Good Day,

I am currently in the Marine Corps. I just reenlisted and trying to battle with options for going Recon, MARSOC, or doing an interservice transfer to USASOC.

Hopefully with the help of you guys I can piece together the best/appropriate move!

Greetings to all community members. First off, assuming that because I didn't complete my profile to the fullest as was required, it took longer to be approved than was stated in the e-mail confirmation - my apologies.

Unlike the many millennials who enjoy sharing the dullest facets of their lives, I try to avoid that, hence why there's little information provided on what I feel is relevant to my bio.

Anyways, I'm here to learn as much as possible from you gentlemen and women to help me in my journey of overcoming difficult obstacles.

MOD EDIT:Take your silly question to PM, and unless the poster is a personal acquaintance or friend of yours, you don't need to welcome everyone to SOCnet.

The moderators (like myself and others) can handle the greetings as necessary.

And no, I don't need a PM saying you're sorry


Thanks

I have been a member here since 05. Now I'm pretty sure I posted an intro in the proper thread 9 years ago, but I can't find it. So since I don't work for the IRS, and can't use that as an excuse, in the interest of not ending up on the extract bird, here it is again. Former Canadian Soldier, worked on both Dyn and BW WPPS details for 3 yrs starting in 05. Now to answer the question before it's asked, I have dual US/Can citizenship, which is how I was able to get the proper clearance to work the DoS contracts.
Thanks, Robert
