If you are an armed forces member and dam proud of it what branch are you in and whats your MOS.
I am in the U.S. Army and am a 13B ( Cannon Crewmember ) I am a Specialist and have been serving for 2 years and 3 months. I'v been deployed one time to Afghanistan for 12 months and am currently stationed in Schofield Barracks Hawaii.
How about the other service men and women?
Army EOD TECH been in for 2 years stationed in Germany
Many thanks, and thank you for your service!!!!
I am a Chief Submarine Sonar Technician (E-7) currently stationed in Bangor, WA on the USS Alabama, SSBN-731 Gold. My first boat was the USS Bremerton SSN-698, homeported out of Pearl Harbor. I have just passed 22 years and have about 300 days left until I retire. As far as deployments go... my closet is chocked-full of 'been there, done that' t-shirts.
As far as what my job is, watch the movie The Hunt For Red October, basically I'm Jonesy. 20+ years later, we still don't have the super-cool computer system that he had in the movie and it still takes 4 - 5 people to do the job he and Seaman Bowmon did...
Just for the record:
The coolest submarine movie: The Hunt for Red October
The Worst submarine movie: Crimson Tide
The best submarine movie: Dos Boot
The most accurate submarine movie: Down Periscope
Submarine Qualified, Chief Inducted, Navy Retired
You are one "Salty Bubblehead" Chief...... And thank you for your service as well as thanks to all who serve and have served....
I spent 5 years, I was a Data Processing tech DP2, (E-5) when I finished my 5 year hitch.... And my first year was on a Trident Class Sub Tender. Hence the jargon knowledge.....
Anyone who can do the full 23+ years deserves all the respect you can give them.... They have to move around a lot and to me Sea Duty can really stink... Spent 6 months in the Indian Ocean once without pulling into port.... You work 7 days a week at sea..... And you work lots of hours.....
But to all those out there, Be Safe and Thanks for keeping us safe...
Being a dependent of any military family deserves a thank you very much as well... It's no easy task moving every 3 years, long term separations and especially during these days where many are dealing with being in wartime conditions....Originally Posted by I_EAT_DIRT
Huge thanks to all the families of active U.S. Military!!!

@ "I EAT DIRT" - YES THAT COUNTS!!! I think you deal with more than most active duty. Dont worry, one day the military will give your spouse back! Thank you for letting us borrow for a while
Well, both of my grandfathers were Colonels in the Air Force; one flew B-29s in WWII, and I don't remember what the other one did...my dad was a Major and flew F-4s, and my brother-in-law is a Captain and a B-52 navigator. I'm thinking about joining later in life, I'd love to work on an AC-130, one of my all time favorites.
