@ NETGUNNY
Thank you for the kind words! I too have the utmost respect to the Marine Corp! You guys did amazing stuff in Iraq! The living conditions were horrible and your men had a superb attitude. I would break my neck for them any day (Ooorah)!

I do not know if I would "toot my horn" about being a 02J if it is what I think it is...lol. I was a 2T432 when I came in, known as Allied Trades or The Body Shop. But I got out as a 2T470 which was basically just a supervisor in over all the shops, so it is like mid management I guess since I still had one spot over me on site...lol

What was your job in the service?
I posted my MOS already (02J) and I'll tell you what that is after I see a few others.

Served for 27 glorious years with the US Army Special Forces. Traveled extensively (moved 22 times). Came in as a dumb/punk Private from Spanish Harlem, New York City. You could say that the Army saved my "bacon". I not only successfully completed Infantry OCS, but was sent to get both an undergraduate and Masters Degrees. Have no regrets, since I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. HOOAAA!! For those that served, I thank you for your service to our wonderful country. For those that didn't serve and could have, your loss.

Bill

US Army. Got out in August 1996 after serving honorably for 11 years 4 months and 11 days. Last assignment Bosnia. Operation Joint Endeavor. That was a Charlie Foxtrot if ever the military had one without a useful purpose IMO. Proud to have served!!! Glad to be out!!!

@KILLRBEE18

I have an extra measure of respect for FMF Corpmen and SeaBees! You guys ROCK! When everybody else is taking cover you guys are up and 'attem' doing what you do, which doesn't involve cover. I tip my hat to you!

Semper Fi!

USMC 1975 to 1997, you can probably guess what my final rank was. Was 0311 (Infantry Rifleman) for four years, serving two of them on sea duty aboard USS Enerprise (CVN-65). Remaining years I was 2871/2874, TMDE Technician/Metrologist (ground calibration). Did two years as an evil Drill Instructor (8511) at MCRD San Diego, 2nd Battalion. That was instense, but fun.

Thanks to all who have served, and are serving, in the defense of our great nation. Few who have not served fully understand, and appreciate, the sacrifice that is made by the men and women who pledge their lives to defend our nation and our way of life.

Ooorah Killer . . . Semper Fi!

@GRAVELRIDGEBOY
I think you're right! By the way, there are teams for military people. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the teams, even though I have some listed under me; I had a bad experience with them.

I think that "weight loss" is usually geared to the women so that will stop many guys from coming here. Plus, I used this site for a long time before I found the forum part here so there might be more military guys just using the food/exercise trackers and reading articles. You might get a bigger military turnout if this question was in the general area where most of the females are searching...but then it would not count the males who only come to The Guys Lounge here...lol

@ GRAVELRIDGEBOY,
Oxnard wasn't bad! It's a nice place to visit. The weather was in the high 60 to low 70's. Heck, I even came back home with a sunburn!

@KB18: Yeah, Fort Ord had built "Impossible City" around that time and by 1987 were using it for urban warfare exercises, it was a fantastic site, about 10 square city blocks of burned out buildings and abandoned cars/trucks.

KJFITNESSDUDE,
Can you believe I did my High School JROTC (Army) boot camp there (1985)? I must admit, I had a killer time riding around in the cattle trucks and running the obstacle courses!

I served in the Army as an MP from 92 to 97. When I got out I was a Sergeant (E-5). I was placed on a permanent physical profile for a bum knee so I got out instead of staying in with very limited promotional opportunity due to the medical issue.

Thank you for your continued service.

Has anybody served or is currently in the military? If so, which service did/ are you serving in and for how long? I am currently in the Naval Reserves. I am with the United States Naval Construction Battalions "Seabee" (NMCB18). I have been in the Navy for 22 yrs. Six of the those years were served on the USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) --- active duty and the other 16 years were served with the "Bees". I am currently an E6 (First Class Petty Officer). I have a green light to retire but I am planning on staying in (I love what I do). Until then.......
