    New soldier on the forum

    Hi, I've been a gun enthusiast/hunter for many years(well as many as 24 yrs old will get you haha) and have been serving active duty in the Army for almost 5 years. I'm a SGT and will be leaving the service after this current tour to Iraq is finished. I'm at a Patrol Base in Lutifiyah IQ in the media known as the triangle of death region. I have about 8 months remaining on a 15 month tour. This is the second time I've been deployed to Iraq. I love riding motorcycles in my free time and currently own a 2006 Yamaha R6.

    I own the following
    H&K USP .40
    Romanian AK-47
    4 shotguns
    3 Hunting rifles
    3/320th Field Artillery
    3rd brigade RAKKASANS
    101st AIRBORNE

    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    Welcome from Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Thanks again everyone. I'm looking into law enforcement when I get out. I call franklin county home in PA and live on the MD state line. I was thinking of either PA or MD state police. Anyone have any insight or would recommend local law enforcement instead?
