    Just wanted to say HI to all the vet's here. I'm retired Air Force 423x2. Retired from Nellis back in 93. Kind of miss the service. Dealing with civilians is a pain especially the ones who have no clue what it entails to wear the uniform. The ones I deal with are dumber then a box of rocks but I guess that's everywhere. Oh well, enough of the ranting. Glad to be here with fellow service men and women.

    Retired in '99 and with what I see today, am damn glad I'm out. Have no idea what the career field designations are today, but I was a T3C0X1 when I retired. :D

    You're a computer guy. I miss dealing with the people in the Military. People that I deal with are not to smart and they think Common Sense is something you buy.

    Retired in 07 and was a 3C1X1 - Radio Communications Operator. I've heard my career field was shut down and merged with the 3C0s into a new career field 3D0.

    Checkin in too.
    US Air Force; '76 - '96 15 yrs as enlisted flight crew on E-3(A-C); master wings.
    It took me 5-6 yrs when I got out to find a boss I respected and got along with. One of my co-workers was a Navy vet. And even then, it took a few yrs for us to understand ea other.
    One thing that took me quite a while to figure out; in the service I was trained on everything, then tested on it and then signed-off that I was qualified to do it. And then... I was given the responsibility and authority to do it, with a clear understanding when and when not, etc.
    In civilian jobs; they look for initiative - but, only allow for so much!
