Yeah, My rate right now is E-1, Im working on taking the PQS test to get E-2. Im not leaving for about 7-8 months (ship date is May 21, 2009) So I have plenty of time to study and learn as much as I can for RT. My job is DC ( Damage Controlman) going to be a firefighter. I've done more research on the job and I like the choice I made. If anyone has any more information of this job PM me plz. thanks

Basically I had a FO relay to me orders from my company commander to call in arty on a house that I KNEW had civi's in it, told that FO that if he so much as touched his radio I'd kill him myself (don't advise that one) turned out the two guys that ran into the house that my CO thought were insurgents were just the teenage kids of the family that was in there... My CO still threw the book at me, forfeiture of pay blah blah blah...
