Hi, I'm Chris and I am a Paratrooper I was looking for cool Airborne tattoo designs and came across this site. The fraud section made me laugh so I was what the hell why not join. I served from Aug 21st 2001 to Feb 9th 2006, did my basic at Fort Benning and AIT at Fort Gordon. I don't remember what my unit was at basic but I do remember it was pretty damn easy....LOL... not really a important part of my Army career as you can tell. My MOS is/was 25F1P....yes I was signal and loved it, I attended AIT at Fort Gordon at E447 and graduated April 8th 2002. I then went directly to jump school with my girlfriend now wife and we both got our wings on May 3rd 2002. And we both when to Fort Bragg, I went to 35th Signal BDE (ABN) and she went to 112th Signal BN (SO)(ABN) in USASOC. I do like to tell the wife went to ABN school story with me because its weird so please bare with it...LOL. So anyways I was then part of the invasion force in OIF 1 and did a partial OIF 3 tour. I was on jump status the whole time after jump school and got a nice set of Polish jump wings out of it too (Toy's for Tot's rocks). After I got out I went directly into the DoD contracting world and went directly back to the Middle East Area and I have been in the Middle East ever since. I am currently doing my thing at Joint Base Balad in Iraq (its not called Anaconda anymore), so thats about it for me. Oh one more thing I was a Corporal (P) in a signal unit and that is the worse thing to ever happen to me it sucked so bad. Its rare to have a Corporal in a Signal unit and I found out it just doesn't work well.
