Main Area > Meet and Greet


(1/8) > >>

This is something I have seen on other forums, and thought it would be cool to do here. I looked around and didn't see anything like it on here. I also think it would be pretty cool to get all the military folks, or anybody else who would want to to join in to do a ride in the local areas. Kinda like the Patriot Guard Riders but with out the Funerals and the Protest from that crazy church. So........

Sound off with branch of service, years of service , MOS and Active, Guard or Reserve.  I guess I'll go first.

Just missed Desert Storm 1,, crap,, I wanted to blow something up to!!
Participated in Team Spirit in SK, Reforger in Germany, 2 NTC tours and countless FTX exercises.

NCO, 1975-1981
Had two AFSC's. . . (MOS for you Army people)
1.) Radio Relay Equipment Technician, and
2.) Air Traffic Control Radar Equipment Tech.

Best duty location: Mount Pateras Greece. (Remote duty pay in them days)

Had a pretty interesting (boring) time stateside doing Air traffic Control RADAR at Rickenbacker AFB too.
KC135's and C123's all day and all night. Kind of boring after a while but the old AN/MPN13 & TPX42 RADAR unit (shown below) was kind of fun.


Then worked for a couple of years as a civilian on 5 GHz radio systems for a US Defense contractor (back when such work was plentiful).
Also did some overhaul work on the BPDMS ship based missile system, it was similar to the RIM-Sparrow launcher in the photo below.  (Man, I feel old)

O.K., that's my 3 minuets of fame.
God bless all you veterans!
