Welcome to ATS, and you say Ft. Sill in 06?
I was passing through there that year. They had us up in the old MP barracks, build where the hospital was that Geronimo was at.
Liked that place, the upper most level was chained up and padlocked. We were told the hospital beds and other stuff was up there. Pretty cool story,
and it made a few people uneasy, lol.
Called that place, Fort "Still"....wasn't too bad. Have some pictures (of Atomic Annie etc) around here some where, of my short stay there as I was
passing through, from White Sands then on to Hood, for Iraq deployment.

Everyone in the Military has a Secret Clearance
Not true, there are tons of people in the military who have no clearance what so ever, because their MOS doesn't require it.
In my unit we had a NBC guy who had no clearance at all, yet he was allowed in our toc where we had to have a secret just to use certain commo. "Need
to know" is more important than clearances, and those of us who are combat arms are more valuable in the field, than as a toc beotch.
Maybe every one a "sfwife" meets in the military may seem to have a secret or better clearance, but that is because they have to. Reasons being
should be obvious, hopefully the difference is too.
Just wanted to clarify for preventive measures. Some people might actually be lead to believe every military person has a secret clearance, and
trained death dealing super soldiers. when in reality, 99% of the military are personnel other than grunts, like kitchen staff, laundry services or
supply clerks. Not combat arms, sorry, and not all combat troops get clearances.
Hollywood is not reality, reality is not Hollywood.
