    Default My Introduction

    Hi

    My name is Nick , I served in the 356th MI Co, 20th SFG (ABN)(CEWI), from 87-90. then transferred to the 121st LRSC (ABN) until 1993. I moved back to the 20th SFG in HHC and stayed for 2 years there. I moved to a leg unit in an Airborne position as a Combat Journalist with the 413th MPAD until 2001. I was then moved to the 101st Airborne Division from 2001-2005, where I served in Iraq from the onset of OIF in 2003 into 2004. I left and moved to a Medical Command Signal job with the 332nd Med Bde from 2006-2008, A Garrison Support Unit for another year in Iraq from 2008-09, then to the 315th PsyOps Co (ABN) for my final 2 years of service.

    Of course I have Sr. Jump wings, I also have the Air Assault wings and Italian Airborne wings, both a CIB and a CAB.

    I have worked at various levels up to Division Command groups. I currently work for the Forest Service in Florida where I moved back home to after retirement.

    Welcome Nick. Pull up a stool, buy the first round and tell some alligator stories.
    At some point in your life you must look in the mirror and decide if you like what you see.

    Hi Nick.

    I was with B 1/20 SFG 85-87. Maybe I bumped into you somewhere.
    So the maples formed a union
    And demanded equal rights
    'The oaks are just too greedy
    We will make them give us light'
    Now there's no more oak oppression
    For they passed a noble law
    And the trees are all kept equal
    By hatchet, axe and saw

    Welcome. Sounds like you did a little bit of everything while you served.

    Welcome aboard Nick. As you can see I edited your post, due to PERSEC we don't like users giving out their full names on this board. I would also look into getting your user named changed as well. 'Fraid you'll need to see and admin about that, I'm just a mod.
