What was your occupation in the Military?


Recommended Posts

Yes, I was in Atsugi.

 

 
 I worked in the Marshall Islands for 5 yrs when I retired from USN. Lots of sensors there.
 
 

Are you in Atsugi?

Probably have a pretty easy job. Just reach around and pull some out of your diaper. Stop by again when you sober up. It's not often us old guys get to converse with a spoiled teenager. 

My dad spent a lot of time with the grunts. He was an Navy FMF Corpsman for 14 of his 20 yrs.

I jumped out of perfectly good airplanes.   When I got too scared to jump, they pushed me.

Best time of my life, so far.

USMC: 2814/2822 Telephony DCO/ ESS Mainframe Repair Technician. 7th Comm 85-87. Okinawa. In fact I meet my wife while being stationed on Okinawa I loved the Marines and would have probably served 30 if I had not ripped my knee. I earned the rank of Sergeant but was not allowed to reenlist and left Okinawa straight to SEPS. Honorable discharge and a service-connected disability. Bigger better times, too bad they could not last forever.

Had to look it up myself - missed that slang (but unfortunately not because of age).
