    Hi Everyone, especially the vets. Being out of the service(US Army) now for a year, I must say I am not missing it as much as everyone said I would. I guess having a new baby arrive while in Afghanistan sort of dampened my motivation to return to the long periods away.

    I was surprised to find a site were it seems alot of vets discuss(?) all kinds of topics, from my favourite Aircraft to war politics, I hope I can add some constructive points along the way. Being an OTR Truck driver now, my time at home is limited, but I do intend to add my 2 pennies from time to time.

    Alittle about myself, Born and raised in an RAF lend family, from my Grandfather, father and both uncles, I married an American and immigrated. After we seperated I joined the US Army, which I enjoyed for the most part.
    In 7 years service, I attained Sargeant, and exprienced Kosovo (7 Months) and Afghanistan (9 Months). My entire service time was spent with the 10th Mountain Division Ft. Drum, Ny. For you vets I was an 11B which you will know was not a good MOS for most overseas Deployments.

    Well I have given you some info on me, I will endeavour to do this site justice and participate as much as possible.

    The one I am married to now is great, she was my wife for the last 18 months of my service, and put up with alot of crap, upto and including having the baby without me here. So I would say that maybe 99.9% of American 'Women' are bitches.

    If any out there am willing to be proven wrong and lower the percentage:!:

    Welcome to the site.

    What years where you in Kosovo. I spent 10 months in Kosovo and then 14 months in Iraq. I am a 15T Blackhawk crewchief, SGT, and been based out of Germany my whole time in the US Army which has been about 6 years now.

    I completly understand why you got out man. I am getting out in about 80 days now as well. I look at this way, I served my country and now it is time to serve my family.
