    Question Ex-Military??

    I was curious....how many of us are ex or active military? And what branch, when and what did you do? I was in the Navy from 96-00, in San Diego stationed with VS-41 and VS-29 as a plane captain and AT(Aviation Electronics Tech.). I made a deployment on the USS Carl Vinson for operations Southern Watch and Desert Fox. Anyone care to share?

    Cool

    Fully Recovered Ex-Navy Type. '82-'90 served aboard 2 submarines, a submarine tender, and finished aboard the USS Aylwin FF-1081. Working for the Military now though - MCAS Cherry Point Fire Dept. It's a lot more fun looking in from the outside.

    USN '89-'95, the Mars (AFS-1) for 3 yrs, flying squad, inport Scene Leader, and Repair 5 (main engineering space) Scene Leader. 3 more years @USCINCPAC/CMSA. Can't tell you what I did there, or I'd have to kill you
    I was a Data Processing Tech (computer ops) when there wasn't a fire/drill going on.

    Since then, back to college, and now a full time computer programmer. Live in the city (paid dept.) and can't work any surrounding rural vol. depts, due to response times.

    I was in the Navy stationed on an LHA from 85 to 89 and was a member of the shipboard firefighting team (imagine that). We had 1 fire in that 4 years, we also assisted the Iowa after the explosion that made the news.
