Introduction

Postby joeyxnoir » February 12th, 2017, 5:31 pm

Greetings,

My name is Major. i am former Active Duty USAF SSgt (8 years), and a current Texas Army National Guardsman. During my USAF time i served as a Emergency Manager, and later on as an Aerial Transporter. I have been stationed in the United Kingdom, Japan, Korea, and the god forsaken place that is New Jersey. I separated in June 2016, and joined the TX NG slotted as an 11B in December. i am scheduled to ship to OSUT mid may, with Airborne afterwards. my contract is for 3 years and my goal is to get back into active duty and hopefully serve in the 75th Ranger Regiment. i look forward to reading and soaking up as much knowledge as possible from the community, and hopefully being able to help out in areas i may have expertise in. Thanks for having me!

Thank you for the welcome Jim and CharlieRanger1FFV.

More about myself, i am 27, and currently attending college while serving in the NG, until i can get back on AD. I've always wanted to serve in the Army, but somehow i got roped into the Air Force :lol: . During my time in England, i was on course to switch over using the Blue to Green program, but was ultimately shot down due to "manning". During my transition period, i was put in touch with an SF MSG who was the SEL at JSOAC-E, which was right down the street from my unit. i went through a sort of preparatory course, and while talking he asked me had i considered Special Forces. I told him that i wanted to be a proficient Infantryman before anything else, and that is when he recommended the Ranger Regiment to me. It has been a goal of mine to serve there ever since. There are actually a few soldiers in my NG unit that have been in the Regiment, and i'm hoping between this site, them, and of course my own will i will achieve this goal. Thanks for listening!

If you kept your stripes when you came over to army the amount of work and expectations of you are going to be immenseley higher... especially if you earn your way to Regiment. Welcome here and good luck on your new found jorney.
