    I would like to welcome all the prior service and active duty members here on DegreeInfo. I'm sure I speak for many of the veterans here when I say that if any of you have any questions or need some advice, please seek out our veterans here on my board and we'll try to point you in the right direction.

    I wouldn't consider myself a "senior member" here on DegreeInfo, but I have been around this forum for a day or two, so PM me if there is anything I can to help. I am a firm believer in supporting our military personnel, as we always tend to take care of our own.

    I do want to make a career out of the military, but I'm planning on comissioning one way or another.

    Active duty USN 2007-UFN
    Quartermaster (for anyone who's Army, that's not supply it's navigation)
    I served onboard the USS Essex in Sasebo, Japan for 4 years.
    Transferred to Assualt Craft Unit 1 in San Diego, CA for 2 years where I was a LCU Navigator and deployed with the USS Peleliu
    and now I'm on Shore Duty closer to home at NSA Panama City where I feel like an overpaid maid and O.B.

    I am active duty Coast Guard with almost 12 years of service. My rate is an Electronics Technician. I have done 2 land tours and 1 afloat tour plus small segments of training here and there. Honestly the best decision I ever made. The experiences alone are great not to mention they paid for my Associate's Degree and almost my entire Bachelor's Degree with TA. My last 4 classes TA only covered 75%, which is still good in my opinion. Also I was able to transfer my Post 9/11 GI Bill to my wife, she is halfway done with her MSN from Benedictine University. Thank you Uncle Sam for providing me with a career and a means to pay for my wife and I's education.

    I earned my BS with TA while on shore duty then I earned my MA on my next shore duty. I completed my MDIV with the GI Bill during my last duty station.
    Thanks to all who have served and continue to serve.

    I've been on Active Duty with the Air Force since 1994 with no retirement plans in the near future. I started out in a medical career field and did a late career shift to aircrew.
