I am no longer in the service I did this just to see how this works. I think if we all follow suit it will be better for us to contact one another and we can file through to see if someone is stationed near us. Thanks again Lee

Great idea for a forum, I am currently 3 1/2 yrs removed from active duty. However, I still live mere miles from where I was stationed; Camp Pendleton, CA. I was in the Marines for 4 tour in Iraq (Ramadi-2004) and 2 tours in Okinawa Japan. Looking forward to meeting fellow veterans on the forum!

This seems like a good idea so I thought I would add my bit, I am currently living in Sydney.

Riding is life!

US Air Force...15 years active duty so far.
Career field: petroleum oil and lubricants (POL)

Yokota AB, Japan - 3 tours
Osan AB, South Korea
Kunsan AB, South Korea
Fairchild AFB, WA - just 12 months
RAF Lakenheath, UK - leaving soon
Misawa AB, Japan

Too many deployments and TDYs (temporary duty assignments) to list and probably will list them out after my service to country is done. Better to be safe but I feel I have been lucky to be able to see as much of the world as I have.

POL slogans:

"if you can't truck it...F**K IT!"
"what the f**k...BIG GREEN TRUCK!"
"Without fuel pilots are pedestrians"
"He who controls the fuel, controls the world!"

I am stoked this section has begun. I would also like to say a thank you to Lee and Saphena for taking the added responsibilities in moderating this section...thanks guys!

Sometimes the grind can get to you, especially with the ops tempo and the direction things are going in but it has been my honor to serve my country in the Air Force. Something I will be grateful for and will never regret it. A few more years and it will be time to take the uniform off though. Heading back to New York so I can go on a Hudson Valley pizza run with Lee

Actually I sent a PM to Saphena, Wombat, and HiD asking them about this. To their credit and my appreciation, they jumped right on this and got it started. I think it was a matter of two days from the time I asked the question and this section appeared; thank you very much for this guys! I started thinking about this because Doodledog and I were able to meet up after finding out through some random thread that we are both career military and don't live that far from each other. It was a great meet and I feel fortunate to have that opportunity. I still owe you that rootbeer too Doodle and I will get it to you before I leave It just made me start thinking that this could possibly be a great network tool to have for the people serving. These kinds of things are great for someone like me who has been doing their entire time in service overseas and having this chance to meet up or talk with other Trumpeters is awesome. I am definitely the odd man out on base as I ride my British twin alongside a sea of Harleys

So a big thanks to everyone that made this happen and to both Saphena and Lee for taking this portion of the forum under their wing. I will also try my best to get some Japanese RATS in here as well once my move is over. You would be surprised the following Triumph has over there. I think a lot of people make the assumption that there isn't much of a following because of the strong hold on the bike industry they have but there is a good sized following on the western bikes. There is the language barrier when it comes to membersip on the forum but who knows until you actuall start looking around...
