Thanks, but we still have plenty of guys in so worry about them, I got out a long time ago and it's what I always wanted to do. :D

The army was a blast while I was in.

 

 

 

 

Get it? (I try to be punny.)

Airborne infantry, and thanks to a few to many of these detonating on my truck I'm now a stay at home dad dealing with veteran's affairs:

Hey dal, I've recovered quite a few that were in a similar situation.. Don't have photos though.. It always sticks in my mind turning up to a truck that's so deep the driver is sat on the roof :D

Wait, you were the Iraqi that pulled us out of the Tigris with some little Cat dozer? :D

The pic was taken after the canal collapsed and we tried to pull it out with two humvees. It originally slid in sidewise, thank god everyone didn't have mraps at the time or it could have gotten ugly.

No I didn't help recover any humvee's the only one I recovered was an m1abrams that got taken out by an RPG :( .. Some of our recovery mechs also grabbed one of the American repair/recovery tracked vehicles.. Don't know what they were called

That stinks the only time I saw any abrams was when one almost ran us over on the long dirt road leading into the base in Telafir(sp) and one did route clearance infront of us as we were leaving Balad/Anaconda.

I am currently an inventory auditor.... basicly I go into retail stores with special equipment and I count how much product that they have in stock.  But I am hoping to switch jobs soon.

Well I have done a bit of everything really. Did a lot of technical stuff in high school (CAD) and the I went to college for Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering. My goal was to work for DARPA on advanced energy research and weaponry. I dropped that, because I didn't feel like spending my life in such an uptight atmosphere.

 

Next was the Army. Joined and was supposed to be Counter-Intelligence... but I was a year too young so they switched me to Human Intelligence Collector (97E)... basically an Interrogator. Sever family issues made me leave the Army early, and I can't say that's a bad thing looking back. I love the Armed Forces, but hate the bureaucracy, and taking orders from idiots who no longer care about their jobs if they're not in combat. Yeah, I'm jaded... my CoC sucked, and lots of UCMJ laws were broken regarding me in my short time there.

 

Did various jobs, and then went back to college again for Game Art and Design... til I ran out of money after a while, and that failed too. :( I think that is probably my passion in the end. I'm pretty good with digital art and have a knack for game design. I still do a lot of alpha/beta testing for a company, and know the brother of a guy who helped make the Unreal games.

 

I spent about a year and a half with a major bank handling property preservation most recently, and had a unique role there that has helped my resume... which got me the job I'm starting tomorrow at a Bioscience company. It'll be doing order processing, helping re-write procedures, and hopefully assisting in their international market. Pay is decent (for a family of 5 with 4 dogs and a cat), but I have high hopes.

 

When it comes to it, I can do basically anything, test great on everything I test for and am a jack of all trades. I'm great at walking into a job, learning it, and helping improve things afterwards. I just have a hard time being challenged, and getting bored easily when nothing changes.

Personal trainer and martial arts instructor here. I specialize in strength coaching and sports performance in mixed martial artists and BJJ fighters, but my bread and butter is weight loss. When people ask why I do all day I usually say I spend it "yelling at the 1%".

Cable guy here. No relation to larry despite what the kids think! Been doing this for 5 years now and I love it. Not what I'll do forever but for right now it's perfect! I get unfiltered access to people's lives. I mostly work by myself and I get to meet very interesting people on a daily basis. Not many jobs like it!

I work at Microsoft as a Global Critical Situation (CritSit) Manager. When Microsoft's Premier customers call-in for support after they break things, and if it's outside business hours, my team and I manage the cases. CritSits are cases where production services are down, affecting users' ability to work and/or losing the company lots of money.

I plan to go into a support engineer role to actually be able to work on cases as a technical contact, not as a manager.
