Hey all,
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
