I am in the area as well. Been doing the Active duty gig for 21+ years now. I started out in the Navy, did 6 years, then switched to the Army. I was an Electrician's Mate (EM) in the Navy, then for the Army I started as a PATRIOT Fire Control/Radar Operator/Maintainer, until I got bored (about 3 years) then switched to EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) and have been doing that for over 12 years now. EOD is by far the coolest job that I've been fortunate of doing. Been deployed to both theaters, done the whole SPECOPS thing, and love every minute of it. I'm here for any questions/assistance or whatever.
