Ok, now that we have a few service members here.....

What did you do while you were in??

This thread is just about jobs not duty assignments. We'll get to those in another thread.

I started out in the Navy as a Nuclear Electronics Technician. After far too much school and a generally piss poor attitude, I decided I wanted to just be a normal "joe" and elected to go to the fleet as a non-designated striker. After a couple of years of that, I liked the excitement and stuff of being a Boatswainsmate, so I went ahead and made 2nd class fairly quickly. I spent 5 years on USS Ingersoll (DD-990) then elected to be a 9545, security specialist. Did a couple of years at that and then applied for the Army warrant program, where I was an 880A2 (Marine Deck Officer)........Made CW3 and retired.

Was in Finance (73c20 mos)at Ft Bragg NC. Home of the 82nd airborne. Went to Ft lewis Washington and did in processing for guys comming back from Nam. Saw a lot of unusual things. Last few months worked in processing insurance papers for the fellows that gave all for their country.

76 P (Supply and Support)

I was Sgt. E-5 in charge of the Class II and IV yard at LZ English, Bong Son, RVN '69-'70. Our main admin units were in Charang Valley, several miles to the south and they, of course, had higher ranking NCOs and most of the admin officers at that location. Us E-5s were more expendable so that's why an E-5 was in charge of the yard at a forward area. (Either that, or we just got the job done better... take your pick.) It's amazing how many friends a supply sergeant makes and keeps.

I was a 57150 in the USAF.
Fire Protection Specialist.
Better known as a Firefighter/Rescueman for...well...everything.
We are trained for every kind of fire/emergency...such as buildings, aircraft, rescue, munitions, nuclear, vehicles, HazMat, terrorism, etc.
I did 4 years active duty, in San Antonio, TX, 1 year Reserve (MSP airport), and 20 years as a Dept of Defense civilian firefighter (ND) supporting every war/conflict/peace time deal we've been involved in during my 25 years of service. (and counting)
I will probably 'hang up my helmet' in another 6.5 years.
I work directly with military troops everyday, 24 hours on, 24 hours off. (72 hr weeks)
I love my job, and can't imagine doing anything else. Helping people is in my blood.

Anyway, cheers to you all!

I spent a little over 20 years as a member of the Submarine Force. Would have stay in longer but had some problems with reoccuring blood clots so decided it was time to retire (couldn't go back to sea). I retired from Submarine Group TWO in 2002 where I served as the Administrative/Personnel Officer.

My 18 year old son enlisted last week. He will ship out in August, after he graduates from high school and spends his last carefree summer. He is going in as a 14E, Patriot Missile Operation and Maintenance Technician. He will be stationed at Ft. Sill, OK for boot camp and Ft. Bliss, El Paso, TX for AIT (29 weeks).

My wife and I are very proud of our son!
