    Hello everyone. My name is James. I am a SSgt in the U.S. Air Force working jet engines on the C-17 Globemaster III. Im currently Stationed at Charleston AFB, SC. I have been in 8 years now and still having a blast. I came across this site a few years ago, but I have only recently started making post on the forums. This is a great site and everyone in the forums seems to be full of information. I hope to make many more post and maybe share some of the info i have with the rest of the world. :D

    Hello James: Welcome to the forum. You will find lots of active duty, reserve, ex-military and us retireds on here. We have USA, USAF, USMC
    and probably USCG as members. mkloby is an active USMC pilot,
    lesofprimus is an ex-seal, Der Adler is ex-USA (helo crewchief), I'm retired
    USN [retired in '71].... and there are others, too many to name. Plus we
    have Wurger who is active duty Polish Air Force, and guys from all over the
    world. Some will be along to welcome you in person.

    Beware the "diggers" [Aussies]..... we got them too !!
