Without my chair I am nothing.
E-3 Ramirez (E-4 in August)
Airforce active duty
1N051 Operations Intelligence
2 years and 3 months service currently
612 Air operations center
Marksman, airforce 43/50 to qualify.
Lackland AFB for boot camp and Goodfellow AFB for tech.
No current deployments.
2 cents? Never go into intel straight from boot camp, cross train when you're too old to keep up the pace at career fields that require a lot of physical work or special forces. Also attempting to cross train out of intel to go to TACP.

That sucks. :hs:
Yeah...everything you have ever read or heard about it completely true.

Its a cool time to come into gunships though. I am really hoping I don't stay on the Whiskey forever. I would like to go to J models and then hopefully go to Hurlburt. There is so much uncertainty though about when the J's are showing up and where they are going first. The 16th SOS (AC-130H) is shutting down as the H models are at the end of their lives, but there is talk about sending the new J's to Hurlburt to replace the U models.

It also looks like the J model schoolhouse might go to Kirtland which would be a great place to live.

This changes daily though and depending on who you ask you get a lot of different opinions. For now, the 30mm, SDBs, and Griffin missiles are a pretty fun toy.

At least I knew i was coming here though. We have a few that spent time in the AD squadrons in Little Rock that were given (or not given) the choice of W's to Cannon, or move on to a pred.

I dont, but im also not in the ops squadron (the 73 SOS) yet. They have a training squadron here that you go to first. Its the 551 SOS and they handle all the gunships, Dorniers, and RPA types so thats home for me for now.

I visited OT a few years ago, lost interest when life got interesting, but i'm back now.
I guess that means life is getting better again. Since it has so long since I was active here I figured a fresh introduction was in order, so here goes.
I signed up at the recruiter on my eighteenth birthday, September first, 2001. I was supposed to be shipped off to boot camp in november, but after the events of the eleventh I was able to persuade the recruiter to bump me up. I ended up entering great lakes on september 27, 2001. After graduating Navy boot camp I was shipped to Pensacola (NATTC) for avionics technician (AT O strand) A school, followed by F-14 FRAMP and wire connector repair school in Oceana Virginia. I then reported to my first command, VF-154 in Atsugi, Japan. I started my fleet time in the line shack, earning my plane captain qual for the F-14. I was sent to the (Integrated Weapons Team) IWT shop in preparation for our Jan 2003 cruise. We cruised to the persian gulf, where we participated in the air campaign portion of Operation Iraqi Freedom, with a total 320 tons of ordinance expended. After coming home to Japan, my squadron transitioned back state side as they needed to pick up the new Super Hornets, and as manning levels were dropping, and the new squadron coming in needed AT's, I was able to wrangle a second tour in Japan. I completed my five years in the Navy with VFA-102, working as a team leader in the avionics work center, working on the F/A-18 F. I left the service as a Aviation Electronics Tecnician Second Class Petty Officer (Aviation Warfare). Thats a mouthful an a half. AT2(AW) is a lot easier. I made a total of seven deployments, all aboard the USS Kitty Hawk, and I am particularly proud that all were on the flight deck. I spent a total of five years in the Navy, separating in July, 2006 at my EAOS.

Since the service I have worked on the F-22 common integrated processor development team for Raytheon, and as a NDI inspector for the oil field. I finally gave in and went back to college as I saw how my lack of a degree was holding back my career opportunities, and I have about two years left on my bachelor's degree. Love that GI Bill!
