Just a stupid question here.... have you / will you be checking out the car [thoroughly] before you buy it?

I only ask because used Subarus/Evos/Mazdas are... well, often abused. Think of the owner demographics.

Oh geez, I'm in your sig. Haha.

that was an awsome quote


The thing about the car is this:

The current owner has been the only owner. He is in the Navy and is currently in Japan and doesnt know when he will be comming home. He drove the car for about a year and babied it. The car only has 14,5XX miles on it.

After he PCS'd to Japan, his father has kept the car in the garage. He only drives it to and from church on sundays and bowling on saturdays. The dealership said that whenever it needs fluids changed just bring it in and they would take care of them. It has already had the 15K service performed on it and is in almost new condition. No mods done, never raced or launched, NOTHING!

This car is pretty much perfect! Never smoked in, never taken off a paved road. This guy bought it, got orders, then left it to be garaged. He said since im military he is selling it to me cause he knows a lot of people in the military are anal about ****. He wants to know someone will take care of the car cause he liked taking care of it.

I think its a good deal

but trying to get quotes or financing from overseas is a pain in my ***... im just going to have to wait till im back home

definately

my buddy built one as a gift for himself while he was in the Marines. he said total when he was done was about 12K but it is a NICE chopper.

I can afford the car. Im single, live in the dorms, and will only have internet, cell, insurance, storage unit, and gas forthe car to pay for. and rough calculations put me at a little over 800/mo WITHOUT my downpayment im going to put down. So im totally going to go for it

ive always liked these cars so im getting it... period(dot)

USAA will hook you and work well with you no matter the location! Call your JOC DSN or base DSN and have them patch you out to the 800 number of your calling card or of USAA. No cost to your for the call except for your time.

Man thats crazy. They usually bend over backwards and then sideways back forwards for servicemembers. I would try again, you never know. I had state farm for almost 10 years, loved them and have even thought about switching back, they rock...if they could only beat USAA's rates. Sometimes they do but usually not.

Even if USAA's rates went up, I would still stick with em. Their customer service is outstanding.

what part? are you going to northern toward Bagram or southern where im at (Kandahar)?


KAF is ok... its a total cake walk. nothing really worth shooting really. unless you go OTW... there is so much cool **** man its incredible.
Dont know where yet. ACC just needed to fill 100 slots and SrA who havent been deployed are at the top of the list.. and sure enough thats me. Im excited. I should get to go outside the wire. I just have to be a smooth talker

I know! I am a USAA fanboy. My co-workers make fun of me, but **** it, USAA always beats everyones rates and they have never given me any problems ever. I have filed 4 claims with them and every time they came through for me.

Hell, They would finance me for a $50,000 loan at 5.9%... That is tough to beat.

so tell about your guys' tech school (info & oreo)

how long was it, was it hard, and what does it count toward for CCAF? also how many volumes of CDCs do you have for 5 level?

Im thinking about cross training and I want to think of that as one of my options. What exactly do you do during your duty day and duty week?

Tech school as prior service is awesome. (its halfway between baltimore and DC at Fort Meade) the barracks you live in suck (it an army base) but it is a 1 minute walk from a huge Class 6.

It will be about 3 or 4 months.. It is an Army school and you attend with all services.. So thats a unique experience.

http://www.dinfos.dma.mil/index.asp

As far as CCAF I cant remember how many applied but I think I got at least 12 credits.. there are 4 CDC's

Vol.1 COMSEC/OPSEC/ EMSEC/ COMPUSEC/ basic customer service stuff
Vol. 2 Optics and light theory I think.
Vol. 3 Operational Photography (this is the meat and potatoes of the job)
Vol. 4 Computer and electronics info. also info about printers.

Quite easy. I finished them in about 2 months averaging 90's... It took almost 1 year to take my test though because my supervisor at the time kept making us wait.

A typical week varies from base to base but for the most part we work banker hours: 7:30 to -4:30. always have time to take PT and it is really easy to get time off.

I work in an office with 4 other photographers and I happen to be the highest ranking so I kinda of play the NCOIC role, without all the power. But We have 2 photographers each week go out and spend all week with a specific flight on base and just stay and shoot them. Every aspect of their job. at the end of the week they will come back to the office and put together a picture story. (you will do this in tech school) For example, they shot the phase dock last week.

1 photographer will be in charge of studios for the week. They shoot official portraits and full length photos for special duty assignments. They shoot print and get the pictures to the customers.. think of Walmart 1 hour photo.. except we have have more time to turn the photos around.

Then the other 2 photographers cover the location jobs. this can include group photos, pictures for Public Affairs or the newspaper, just anything that doesnt fall into the previous categories. My office re-wrote or OI and we dont shoot retirements or re-enlistments or anything like that unless there is an O-6 present. it was taking up too much time supporting events that arent mission requirements. especially because everyone and their mom has a 8 MP digital camera these days.. they dont need us..

Other than that just a bunch of odds and ends and random jobs. Depending on where you get stationed the mission will be different so its hard to say.

think that about covers it all.

wow great post. it sounds interesting. now im actually compelled to search out the guys back at seymour to talk to them one on one.

but i dont think i could give up being a cop. we get **** on a lot and people talk **** about us but you know what... this job kicks ***. and if i leave i wont be able to come back. but if i stay i wont be able to leave unless i seperate... so i pretty much have to think about it hard.


in other news... i dont think i posted this. bit my Seagate that i had all my photo/video stored on took a dive the other day. I lost over 200 gigs of photo and video from this entire deployment. there is a 99.9 percent chance i wont get it recovered. it sucks... there was some good stuff on there too

Info is never gone for good. It's always recoverable but at a price.

Agreed pretty much the same we only cover retirements for E-9 or o-6's and above... I Just don't have the time to do that crap. hell we only have studio's on Monday's.

Don't forget Alert Photo (I like this part the best, being aq firefighter and all)

We take all crime scene photos used to prosecute military personnel in court martial. Theft, break inns, drugs, murder, rape, child abuse, damage to government property. we take it all.

Whats the most fun taking photos of crazy protesters.
