Hey, everyone!  Just got accepted to the community.  I'm an Air Force LT working as a Nuclear and Missile Operations Officer; in other words, operating ICBMs.  Look forward to being part of this group!

Sounds good to me. Got a buddy who wasn't wen back yet before he enrolled in a masters program in China. Said it was legit but he felt like an asshole surrounded by 22yo coeds. They really didn't stand a chance against him an his beard.

I have a few things I am looking into. I am going to either get a job that involves travel or use my GI Bill to get my Masters degree............or both.

After 9 years as a Reservist and 18+ years on active duty I am now officially retired!! A long haul to be sure but well worth it.

How Bad Do You Go to Achieve Good for Yourself?

In most matters, or at least for others' peoples perceptions of you, the guiding principle should be to do what you feel is right, fair, and just, and to behave in a polite, friendly, and respectful manner.Now, here is the…See More
