Well, here we go. Hello all. I look forward to contributing to many of your discussions. I am currently in the military and have had two combat
deployments to Iraq. For privacy reasons I will not divulge my position or rank, but just so you know it is a relitavely mundane one. No I don't work
on top secret stuff or anything I am merely an average Joe. I have been serving for over 8 years and by the time this term is finished it will be 10.
That is a lot of military experience and knowledge that I can use to give insight to several of the forums here. I look forward to bringing that point
of view to related topics and discussions.
The forums and subjects I am most interested in are: Aliens and UFOs, US Political Madness, New World Order, Breaking Alternative News, Global
Meltdown, Ancient & Lost Civilizations, Survival, and many others. I am impressed at the number of intelligent people who contribute here and I can
see ATS becoming part of my daily routine. It is important to me to connect with like minded people and I am thankful to have found a place where I
can do that.
Over the past couple of years I have come to some conclusions that are causing me to rethink the nature of my military service. I used to believe
that I was doing an honorable thing by serving my country. Now after several years of following what is going on in the world and "waking up" I am
starting to believe that I am playing for the wrong team. I am happy to say that I will not be continuing my service after this term because I truly
feel like I am caught behind enemy lines right now. It truly has been a great moral dillema for me.
At any rate thanks for reading my very first post and I look forward to your replies.
