    Default Came looking for tattoo designs left joining site

    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.

    OIF III with 35th Signal? You had that bitch of a female CSM didn't you? I once saw her chase a humvee on foot to yell at a soldier for not wearing a helmet on a FOB.

    Whenever we saw her we avoided her like the plague.

    Nope I didn't have a female as a CSM the CSM was CSM Jordan (a dude) for the BDE and I forgot who the CSM was for the BN which was 51st at the time. But it was a dude and he was a asshole.... I never was deployed to support my own unit. It would be pointless to deploy a signal support unit to support its self...LOL. I was part of a SEN team (MSE days...yuck) and we got attached to whatever Airborne unit on Bragg needed us. So that said I was rarely around my own command structure our platoon was pieced out by team to whomever. It sucked sometimes but it had its up side.... the upside was our unit was never around and the down side was my team was always some other units red headed step child.

    Come to think of it my own unit seemed to hate us too. Since we where a SEN platoon and we sort of "did our own thing" we got treated like a red head step child back at garrison. Ah the good old Army days.....LOL

    Welcome aboard, and thanks for your service.

    Those things are called signature blocks. Someone will be along to fill you in on how to get one. I don't know where everyone else goes for them because I roll my own in Photoshop.
