    United States Navy Vet here, Spent 2005-2011 on a Fast Attack Submarine (Fast, Black, and never coming back!) based out of Norfolk, VA. 6 years and 5 deployments was enough for me...

    I was an Electronics Technician (Navigation).

    Any other bubbleheads on here?

    Just added my 3rd deployment last year. Ended up going to teach the Ukrainian Armed Forces how to do combat first aid. Spent 6 months mentoring their instructors.

    Please accept this thank you from all of the civilians here at XN. We thank you for your service and the sacrifices both you and your family endure while serving. If I ever meet any of you in person while at events, I will shake your hand and say it again in person. Thank you.

    I did my time 6 years USAF. There I was electronics mechanic. Then I did time in Utah ANG as a 13E. That was not enough so then was in USNR as a aviation electrician on P-3's.

    Right here. US Army air defender from 1/91-6/95. If it flies it dies! Was a 16R and then 14R series.

    I spent 1 year at Fort Hood, then another 3 glorious years in Kitzingen Germany. Was a magical time....
