I am new to the forum and just want to say hi. My name is Casey and I am a Staff Sergeant in the reserves. In SEP, I am going back to active duty as a 13f forward observer.
I was with the 101st from 97-01 as a 13f. In 99, I volunteered to go to Kosovo. I got out thinking college was the thing to do. 1 year and $18,000 later spent I dropped out because college cost too much. I joined the reserves as a 21b combat engineer to keep the military option open. In NOV 02, I volunteered to be deployed to Kuwait with a multi roll bridge company. We were attached to the 3rd ID and rode thru the war with them. My unit built a bridge along the Euphrates and then moved to Balad we were spent the rest of our time there. I found out that engineers get passed all over the place doing odd & end jobs. I returned to the US in SEP 03. After a bit I decided that the military is the place for me and I will be going to Ft. Carson very soon. Chances are I will be headed back to the sand box early next year.
Soon I will have enough college credits to become an officer. I have seen some pretty messed up things in the army. As an NCO, you can only do so much.
Well, that's enough about me. I'll be around

Welcome to the forum Doody. Sounds like things will be going good for you soon. I was stationed at Carson...I think you'll like it if you like the great outdoors. Best of luck to you.
If your attack is going really well, it\'s an ambush.

Col. Meyers: What\'s your assessment of this situation, Gunny?
Highway: It\'s a cluster ****, sir. Marines shouldn\'t be sitting on their sorry asses filling out requisitions for equipment they should already have.
Col. Meyers: An astute observation.
