MSgt, USAF, Retired, 1978-99. My first 12 years was in avionics sensors on the A-7D, F-4D, the occasional RF-4C, and the F-4E. If you watched CNN during the first Gulf War, you saw video from my IR laser target designator systems. We told the laser guided bombs where to go. I retrained in 1990 due to medical issues. Since I was spending so much time in the hospital, I figured I might as well get into healthcare administration.

My initial tech school was Lowry AFB CO, then England AFB LA, Kunsan AB ROK, Osan AB ROK, Elgin AFB FL, Seymour Johnson AFB NC, and my final tour was Ramstein AB Germany. They never did send me to Alaska in spite of trying for years, so I made them out process me here.

I'm now 16 years into my career with the Federal Aviation Administration and I've been an Administrative Officer in air traffic for the last 8-plus years for the Alaska Terminal District.

Army Infantry Vet here. Did 5 years active 3 reserve got out as a SSG. In my last semester of school now using my GI bill, getting a bachelors of science in Business from Indiana University. My army time is what got me smoking cigars. When I was in Iraq we use to get care packages full of cigars all the time, most were dryer than shit with the humidification devices dry as a bone but we didn't care.

If you are Active Duty or currently Activated, let me know. I would advise against telling the whole world what your job is exactly and where exactly you are, just for OPSEC purposes. But I'd like to know who else here is Active Duty like me and add you to my list of friends here on BOTL since we are already Brothers In Arms.

Vets-feel free to sound off too! After Iraq I gained a whole new appreciation for what Vets before me had done.

Being a previous OPSEC dude and Security Manager along with my real job, this is my advice. Just like mentioned speak in generalities. I wouldn't want anyone visiting the board to get their pee pee smacked by the IT geeks running the base commo. Those guys spend a lot of time during the day trying to catch people looking at porn and disclosing potentially classified info. They monitor everything and know who was signed in and at which work station it was.[/QUO
Hey we have better things to do at least the lifetime ago when I was in
