A big Thank You! to everyone for their service.

I am an 11B with 4 years in and I run a game with another army recruiter and two air force guys (some type of coumpter nerds). To be fair the high military concentration in my group is because we are near a rather large US Air Force base in Germany.

The 12B is now changed to the 21B Combat Engineer.

Army reserve 88M myself and no not going to list my term dates. :)

What is that? Seems we had some guys in my basic unit that were going 88M. I'm kind of remembering "Petroleum Distribution Specialist" or some such? I am woefully uneducated about MOS designations outside of the 98 series.

I guess I should give a shout-out to two of my group members who also served. One (female) is ex Air Force and the other (male, joins when he can) is in the Navy Reserves - recently back from the Gulf and (I think, but hope not) going back again at some point soon. He's about the best minis painter I know...when he can focus on it, that is.

Were you the one who had to remind 11Bs what "Face This Side Towards Enemy" meant?

As Ungoded said it was truck driver. Though I ended up driving a humvee mostly and driving our units commander around and playing secretary more often than not. But considering we was a construction unit it got me out of the harder work so not complaining.

As for what Warlord asked. I game with a PJ aka Parajumper the airforce rescue SpecOps guy. Not sure what the MOS is for them.

to all who serve and play...

well folks I learned to play D&D (3rd)onboard the USS Kearsarge while deployed in the USMC, I find military players are the funnest to game with, they are used to strangers.


In my first permanent duty station, Hawaii, our artillery unit had a slogan that seems appropriate now.

It was "Heleon". It was ancient Hawaiian supposedly and was supposed to mean "Drive On".

So I say "Heleon" To the past, present, and future military members and gamers.

USN 1999-2006, PS2

4 years on the USS Carl Vinson, we were on station before OEF started. My second deployment we participated in Foal Eagle, the semi-regular military exercises with Japan and Korea, during the run up to OIF. Turning a carrier around within 12 months for a second deployment is a lot of work.

3 years at NRD Minneapolis as the PSD Liason. I told my Master Chief that I was going home, so when he spotted that billet I was happy to take it.


I am surprised there aren't more Signal geeks in here...

31S/25S since '95 and still active duty.

Being Active Duty makes it difficult to get groups together, and when you do they die sudden horrible deaths: PCS/ETS/Deployments/Field... *poof* group is dissolved.

Been a while since I saw this thread. Looks as if all of us MI geeks weighed in early. Thanks to everybody who's out there keeping us safe. :)
