Intro - Boyd

Post by Ranger7 » February 27th, 2017, 5:39 pm

Howdy mates.

I served with C Co WPNS PLT as a mortar maggot from '87 to '90, then a short stint with the S1/PAC in HHC in '90, then B Co mortars from '90 to '92. I'm ETS'ed and was a cop in Detroit then Savannah GA until '98, while serving in the National Guard 20th SFG, A Co in Decatur AL from '95 to '98 albeit I never made the time to attend SFAS or the Q-course.

I came back Active Duty after 9-11 as an Infantry Officer and served with the 10th MTN DIV, 1st Special Warfare at Ft Bragg as I did make SFAS and the Q-course as a 41-year old man until my right foot gave out during Robin Sage and I was a med drop. I'm currently with the 4th ID at Fort Carson.

Name is Kevin and good to meet all! RLTW and Sua Sponte

Welcome Ranger. Been a long time but pretty sure we know each other. I was in HHC C/E.

Annnnd no, scratch that, just looked again and you were 1st Batt. We also had a Sgt Boyd in 2d at the same time. Welcome anyway! Good to have you here Brother.

Welcome here Kevin. Someone should be along shortly to help you get verified. I knew a few O folks who went to Carson over the last couple years... Know many Artillery officers who had time in Regiment?

The only one I can think of who is here at Carson is the current DIVARTY commander, he was in 75th the same time I was as a private. He clearly went straight to college, I believe the prep-school the USMA, and came in on the 'O' side years before me. I had a nearly 10-year break in service and a Major now.
