    Sound off (Introduction Thread)

    I'm curious to see who my fellow veterans are here on DegreeInfo, so sound off and introduce yourselves. I come from seven generations of military and I have a HUGE affinity for veterans.

    I did a year of Army ROTC at UF, until they wanted me to wake up at 5:30am for PT. Works great when living on base, but living in a dorm at a state public university, not so well. Let's just say I missed a few of those....

    Of course, now I work for the DoD on an Army base and have to wake up at 5:30am to get to work by 7. Karma, I guess.

    *I was at FOB Warrior in Kirkuk, Iraq around the same time as NorCal! I was Army though so when I was on the FOB, I was on the "dark side" of the FOB. However, whenever we had down time we spent a lot of time at the Clamtina drinking slushies and enjoying the rowdy bingo games the Air Force sponsored!

    You must have been with all the MP's at good old Camp Renegade.

    I used to love the internet cafe on the dark, the Army never put up any filters like we did so you could surf whatever you wanted. Plus that mural the Hawaii Army Guard painted on HQ was really impressive. One of my biggest regrets was that I never got a picture of it.

And i just been interested on it and I think I can learn something on here again. Before I just seek for some information about online schools and now this topic got my attention so hello guys see you in the forum again.
