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.

Just saw this thread. I was USAF ‘98-‘06. Only one “real” deployment to Afghanistan, and was stationed in Virginia, Belgium, and Arizona.
