Re: Member intros- everyone reply here

Hi, I'm Z. I've got no military or engineering background whatsoever but I read as much military history as i can get my hands on. Much of what's available, especially the television documentaries seem rather one sided, for example; how many documentaries about the battle of the bulge have been aired, yet there are few about the battle of Kursk.

I'm no revisionist, but the gaps in the information just make the curiosity that more intense...

Re: Member intros- everyone reply here

Don't think I've introduced myself here, so I might as well now.

I'm Jarrod, 18, from South Australia. I stumbled upon this site looking for details of military hardware, just out of interest, and the database here is really quite good. I'm not in the military, but have been close to joining the army reserves (never did, obviously).

Anyways, gday all, glad to be here

Hi Jarrod, welcome to DT and thanks for joining!

The database will be better once we're done with it. Currently, it doesn't really have much but slow and steady its coming along.

Enjoy

Re: Member intros- everyone reply here

I haven't replied here yet either, im J from NSW, Australia, 21 and had been planning to join the Air Force since i was like 12 or so, but literally months before i was going to join at 19, i got type 1 diabetes and so not only can i not join the Air force but apparently i can't join any part of the defence force, so thats pretty crap..

So now im studying biology and biochemistry and thinking about learning some computer languages like C++

large private company,

I am sure you could guess if you thought about, but we arent supposed to talk about it. I am sure you understand.

so anything I say is just my POV and has nothing to do with work.
look 4ward to some interesting debates

Re: Member intros- everyone reply here

Hi everyone!!

Thought id better get an intro in too. Im from New Zealand although i was born in Fiji.

Ive had Air Force experience cleaning toilets and rooms at my local base (holiday job). That makes me qualified to speak on military hygiene matters haha.

On a more serious note im gonna join the Air Force after i graduate from uni later on next year. This site is great! I hope to learn a lot especally from people like gf.

Thanx
