First, thank you all for serving our country, and many thanks to all who appreciate those who've served.

I'm an Army veteran myself, 11b (hoooooaaaaahhhhh!!!), initially 10th mountain, then f/51 lrsc which ended up getting folded into the Cav about a year before I ETS-ed. I served a surreal eight year enlistment. I reported to the 30th AG in January 2002 (should be able to guess why I joined) and my term of service ended in 2010.

US Army, just a bit over 3years (extended for the Spec 5 'Umbrella'). 84C20 with a 84G20 secondary.
This was way back in the 70s, that 1970s (my daughter likes to kid me).
Grew up in Military family and went to 16 schools before I graduated high school.

Thank you all that served. I have a question for pilots that might have flew the AH-64 Apache Attack Helicopter ? by any chance the ones that served in Desert Storm did you have any training on the AH-64 Simulator unit ? some went to Fort Rucker and some went to the battle fields, the reason i ask is i helped design & build that unit with the help from Ed Buzzy the buyer, if his last name sounds familiar thats because his sisters name was Ruth Buzzy what a small world. I was one of the first people to give that unit a try and some of the head chopper pilots standing next to me said i kicked the tanks ass not to shabby for my first time flying a AH-64 sim unit any way any feed back would be cool regards Craig.

So far 6 1/2 years in the United States Marine Corps as an MV-22 Avionics Technician. Deployed once with the 13th MEU on the USS Boxer, and got one more dirt det to go before I get out. Probably getting out at my 9 year mark, might extend out to ten if things in the civilian job market don't quite go as I am hoping. My goal this year is to bag a mulie out of D-14 and a turkey somewhere in san diego county. If you wanna help me out with the location of some turkeys in san diego I would be more than happy to give up at least half the meat :)
