Iraq, for now...
Hello everyone,

I enlisted in the AF back in 2006, currently in Iraq, though stationed on Eglin AFB, FL. I am a 3D1X2 (Cyber Transport). Basically, a computer nerd... Anyway, I don't like to think of myself as a stereotypical nerd. I absolutely love fitness and pushing myself. I am also in an Air Control Squadron (think computer networking in the dirt/tents). A lot of guys in my squadron have gone on to crosstrain into CCT/PJ's, so there is always a "what-if" feeling in the air. I find your community very interesting, which is why I joined. I hope to learn more and who knows, maybe teach you guys something. About computers, or something. Maybe not.

An ACS? You must work in their tech control facility. I've worked with the 603rd and 606th out of USAFE. I prefer to describe an ACS as a "poor man's AWACS." The BC3 classed you guys up a little. :)

Welcome.

Welcome. Just don't bore us with Lord of the Rings banter.

If you ever refer to anyplace as "the Shire" I'll get Pardus to ban your ass. Computer geeks :doh:

This ring and no other was made by the elves, who would kill their own mothers to have it themselves......

The -23's are the bomb....or need a bomb, something like that. The ones in Kandahar were cramped beyond belief...and to think they were designed for 4 controllers.

Yep, it's crazy. What's insane is, they keep trying to cram more random shit in there. More phones! More screens!... So glad I don't work on those anymore :p:
