I was 8 1/2 years in the Navy as an EW, I too remember CIWS going off above my shop SM3570. Did my last 3 years on active duty as a Survival Instructor at the Navy's SERE School on Coronado Island. I am currently still a SERE Instructor, just as a Navy civilian contractor. I am also going to school to finish up my Bachelors and move into a Masters program in Homeland Security and Emergency Management, hope to get a nice federal law enforcement job with it someday! I am still an active reservist in the Navy, wanted to stay affiliated and help out a little...

Decided to take the day off from my rebuild today and was browsing through the site and decided to let you all know what I've done and what I do now.

 

Spent a little over 20 yrs in the navy in the silent service (Hunt for Red October stuff) on both types of boats. First on fast attack looking for everyone and and then on the FBM's (Trident) hiding from everyone.

 

My next stint after retiring was to go into the computer industry starting off with MSFT, then STB Systems, 3DFX and finally NVIDIA. Been working with Windows since Win 95.

 

For hobbies I like working on cars and so far I have rebuilt a 78 Little Red Express truck that I found for $400.00, currently restoring my 73 Mach 1 and then I found a 71 Roadrunner which I plan to start next year sometime.

 

Also did alot of Salmon fishing up here but boats are worse money pits than cars :)

 

Well, that's about it, I hope to get to know you all better, tap on your extensive knowledge and help others when possible.

Spent 16 years at that base. The NW is really a nice place to live and I was lucky to have been able to stay in one area so long.

I'm an economist and employed in a variety of related jobs for 27 years. Everything I learned cost/benefit went out the window when it comes to Mustang parts (F1 parts, or whatever I am working on). Supply and demand still apply (unfortunately!)

I'm active duty Army and have been since 2000. I've been stationed in North Carolina 3 times, Virginia once (moving back in 2 months) and Georgia once. The Southeast US facilitates driving a class Mustang year round if you can deal with no A/C and blazing hot summers.

My Mustang budgets (72 Coupe & 70 Coupe) are funded by tax-free deployments (8 total) to Afghanistan and Iraq.

Veterinary Pathologist. That is I am a veterinarian and my specialty is pathology. I sit a desk all day with my face glued to a microscope, so working on my truck, El Guapo, and the mustang, Jefe, is a welcome change of pace.

Billy, a 1976 Ford Bronco, also needs a lot of work.

I'm the senior service advisor for a Honda dealership in Las Vegas. I've been with Honda for over 15 years. I've also managed a Honda service department in Cheyenne, Wyoming and a CARQUEST Auto Parts store in Ft Collins, Colorado. I worked as a parts counter man for a Chevrolet dealer for several years as well. I started as a lot porter in high school at a Lincoln-Mercury dealership back in the 1970's. Looking forward to retirement in the next few years, (I hope).
