    Hey bubba!

    I forgot that you were in the Air Force. I remember you saying that you were in Osan. That is pretty cool. I just got back from Kunsan and let me tell you it still sucks. But I am sure you had it worst.

    Here is some of my info.

    Air Force
    SSgt (E-5)
    Pavements and Heavy Equipement Operator/Demolition Team
    I enlisted back in 02 and I am kicking myself in the ass for recently re-enlisting.

              Six years in the Navy as a Nuclear Reactor Operator from '87 to '93. Left as an E-5. Served on board the USS Enterprise aka the pig. I still don't understand how such a miserable experiance could leave me with so many good memories. Or why I would do it again if given the chance.

                    How hard is to work with K9's in the civilian sector? Do you have to have alot of seniority?

                      Dirt if you are looking at this as a career path then I suggest doing it for the govt. You get experience and then you can always move to the private sector. Customs, Border Patrol, DHS..all offer entry level K9 positions and the pay isn't bad. K9 positions are very competitive and it always helps to have experience.

                        Exactly... very hard to get in a Civilian department... because you might only have 2 to 12....and hundreds wanting it... so senior members usually get it.

                        We have 2 dog teams, both old ones retired at the same time... 12 officers put in for the first position (out of 150 in my department), I was a shoe in to get it because I was here so long and very experienced... so I went into the interview and the board ask me... "you ever call in sick when you really wasn't?"... thinking honesty would win the day I said... "yes, many times", lol...

                        Needless to say I didn't get position 1, they all told me because I couldn't say that in a interview... I said, hey, what about honesty... it didn't fly...

                        6 months later they were ready to fill the second K9 position... about 20 put in, I went into the same board, they asked the same question and i said... "OK, do you want the board answer or the truth", they all laughed and by passed the question, and then I got it. lol

                          Prior Air Force here. I was a 2T251, or Air Transportation. I prepared and loaded cargo/passengers on the aircraft. I was at Travis AFB from 99 to 04 and participated in OIF and OEF on 4 different occasions.

                          Although I've been out for 3 years, the desire to return to service is too strong to ignore and I'm currently trying to reenlist into the Army. I should know something within the next few weeks!

                              Well since I started the group.... 18 years of active service, with only two more to go!! Spent the last half of my career in Special Operations. Constantly deployed, something they keep telling me about earning my pay?!!! I would not trade the life style for anything. My only issue is I get out soon and I will have to grow up and get a real job!! :row__631:
