Thanks smokinjohn. I forgot I had posted that photo... ah it brings back memories
I was in the Army for a total of 8 years. I have done time in the Reserves, National Guard, but most of my time was Active Duty. I have a total of 5 MOS's and about a dozen or so duty stations. Kinda been there done that.
What Kelly said is totally true. The military is exactly what you make of it. I've seen some people have a hard time adjusting to the life, and believe me it is a BIG adjustment. I had some tough times in the army, but I also got to do some pretty cool sh*t. How many people do you know have repelled out of a Blackhawk at 100' with a full combat load? Air Assault!
If you decide to join I highly suggest you take one of us vets with you to the recruiters. I'd be happy to go on a day off. You want to get a good job, something that'll help you in the civilian world.
I was a computer graphics artist, an M1A1 Abrams crewman, a helicopter flight student, and an air traffic controller. I spent most of my time as a controller, and that's how I got the kick ass job I have now. I wouldn't be where I am without my military background, and if I had to do it all over again I definately would.
Here are a couple more pics of me I just came across. Can any of you military guys tell me where the first one was taken?
