Anyone on ATS currently in the military? If so, what branch and country are you in and whats your MOS?

I'm currently in the united states naval reserves as an aircrewman third class petty officer (AWF3/E4). But i'm nearly finished with college and almost finished with my officer package.

Careful with that one, you know what you are going to get


'Yeeeeaaahhhh.........I'm with Delta....not supposed to talk about it.....but I will anyway. So there I was, eyeball to eyeball with OBL, Saddam Hussein, and The Joker. I had just done a HALO from 120,000 feet out of the Space Shuttle. I had my finger on the trigger and guess who comes over the net telling me to stand down?....'

13-Echo Cannon fire direction control Specialist.

"STEEL RAIN" "dont run you will just die tired" "artillery men do it with a bigger bang" " The gun line gets laid every single morning in the field" " Ya, I aim the worlds largest sniper rifles" " I got your grid, I got your ass"

Been out since 06, miss those big guns, nothing like shooting hundred pound bullets, the smell of the smoke from the breach of a 1niner8 in the morning is invigorating, I recommend pulling a tail to anyone with a big enough pair to stand next to a breach while it kicks back faster than sound a few inched away from your left flank.

I'm not in the military anymore, but my application to Starfleet Academy should be back any day now!

Never been in the military, too much of a girls girl.

My dad served in Vietnam, grandad in WWII.

To all the soldiers here....you have my admiration, support, and RESPECT.

Since they upped the quota for Special Needs cadets, I'm sure you'll be in next year's class.


Think of it now: "Cadet Beezer reporting for duty Sir"


It just sounds right...

Cadet Beezzer didn't beat the Kobiashi Maru scenario...he broke the simulator though. So many times they let him pass, just to get him out of their hair.

The instructors were overheard muttering something about his fascination with red buttons and pressing them.


Damn Red Shirts!

Been out for almost 12 years now, was NEC 5352 for 12 years and was stationed stateside, NAB Coronado, John C Stennis Space Center (SSC). I miss it a lot and would probably still be in but suffered an injury that resulted in a discharge.

That's awesome! I probably would have given swcc a shot if i didn't want to go straight into the reserves. If i don't get a commission, I'm probably going to cross rate and get into dive school, or rescue swimmer school, just to fly the UAVs.

Dive school is friggin awesome man. I started out a diver, was a Diver Second Class E-5 before I went into SWCC and was stationed at the Experimental Dive Center in Panama City Beach FL. That was an awesome time there man, single 22yo guy and being at one of the best beaches in the world......lots of fun in my younger years. In fact my ND-2 rating is what got me interested in SWCC since I had already been attached to the NECC working with SDV's alongside SEAL's assisting with deployment and recovery of the SDV's.

The Navy dive training is pretty brutal but is well worth it in the end. If you work it right there's a lot of skills to be learned that will make you some serious dough in the civi world. After I left the Navy I worked as a deepwater commercial diver for almost 8 years and loved it.

SWCC was fun as hell too, lots of adrenalin packed action there. IMO you cant go wrong with the Navy. Another great thing about being a diver as well as in SWCC is the availability to qualify for rapid advancement, or it least it was when I was in. That may have changed now though, been a lot of changes since I was in. In fact now SWCC and SEAL's train separate now, wasn't like that when I went through BUD's.

Lol....nothing crazy about us. We're just adrenaline addicts that require a constant daily dose of excitement and stimulation to get our fix. The more danger that's involved the more exhilarating it is, you never appreciate life as much as you do when you are facing death.

You guys are the ones that worried me, getting hit with an active sonar ping is a bad, bad deal. That was one thing that was always in the back of my mind when doing sub deployments or hull inspections....."Man I hope that STG knows we're out here".
