    Default The Military Thread

    Seems as if there are a few of us on the boards currently serving and a few more who have previously served. Let this place be the place for story telling, questions, and any other non-political military discussion.

    Default For our Soldiers

    Since Davii and SeeingRed are both soldiers who are serving our country at this time, I thought it would be appropriate to have a thread where they could post from time to time to let us know that they are safe, and to keep in touch with us. Best Wishes to both of you - THANK YOU for serving.

    I have been considering doing the same in the AF. I'll finish my CCAF (2-year degree) while I'm in the desert. When I get back in Feb I have to go through ALS (Airman Leadership School, required when you make E-5), then I have to go to another 2 week class in Wichita Falls, but after that's all done I'm going to finish my BS in Business Administration, then apply for OTS. I think I'm finally frustrated enough with busting my ass for these weak paychecks that I'm going to do something about it.

    Well, I wasn't going to make it public domain, but i've been getting asked about it so I figured why not.

    I created a blog to keep people up to date while I am here in Iraq. Feel free to peruse and leave comments.

    If you have any questions about what you see on the blog this is a good place, I will come here and answer any questions you may have, provided I can answer said questions.

    Hey all, just a quick update on Seeingred.

    SR is doing well, he can't get to the site due to it being blocked where he is at, but is still trying to figure out a way.

    He is doing well and is "enjoying himself" down there and wanted me to let everyone know he says hi.

    Take care!
