Its not the years that count...its the quality info


Well, never aspired to be anything but an enlisted man...but i was a pretty unusual enlisted man to say the least.

21 years active military service in the United States Air Force.

primary specialty - 16 years as a nuclear, biological, and chemical warfare defense specialist assigned to the deployable medical assets (Air Transportable Hospital (ATH) Air transportable Clinic (ATC) and DEPMEDS (Deployable Medical System).

Secondary specialty - 5 years as a Military Training Instructor, Air Training Command. Taught Field NBC Defensive operations, Field Hygiene, Disaster medicine operations, and preventative medicine techniques to Health care providers at the all services Joint Medical Training Center at Fort Sam Houston, Texas.

Job while waiting for something to happen: Industrial Hygiene, occupational medicine, and health physics technician.

I was a jack of all trades, and a master of a few...as a Technical Sergeant (E-6). Sometimes, i think the guys who shoot have all the fun...sometimes.

Conflicts involved with: Sudan, Persian Gulf, and Bosnia. Plus that big Cold War thing with Soviet Union.

Neat Places i have been to that i would really like to forget (not really): Labador (goose bay, Home of the 30 foot snowfalls) Iceland, Netherlands (Camp New Amsterdam anyone?), Sudan (this really was a wild wood forward area), Oman (Home of the best british mercs pilots), Spain (when we had the base there...it was great), Azores (another Island with great wine), Italy (San Vito de Normandi AB, RIP), and the Aleutian islands, Alaska (Sunny Shemya Island, the 2 x 4 mile grey bar resort).

you guys continue your course to be Officers...cause its better to wave the stick then to play the music. Trust me.

My experience info


I am not actually in the U.S. Navy but I am in an organization sopported by the Navy. The organization is a youth program for the Navy called the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps. You get treated as if you were in the Navy. It is for ages 11-17. So you get disciplined, you also have and co, xo, lpo etc. You get paygrades and rates also that are the same as the navy but you do not actually get paid. You where the uniforms and everything. The URL is www.seacadets.org

Haha, thanks guys. No, I don't think they know yet, but they're about to find out. But since they decided to phase out the Abrams, and I switched my first choice to Infantry, I guess they won't have to worry about me running anything over.

Heh who da known there was Sea cadets down in the states.. well whatever i'm in the RCAC(royal canadian army cadets) and the ages is for people 12-19 we do get paid and uniforms are manditory unless the entire corp has combats, my corp specialises in repelling, bush craft and Rifle shooting, I myself am still debating wether to wait until i age out of cadets and work as a staff personal for my corp or head into the reserves.
