    Hi everyone, FNG here :) from Indonesia.

    I've recently been searching for something in Google (already forgot what), and stumble upon this forum, and I've decided to join in :cool:

    Prior service active US Army and Army Guard Infantry officer.

    I'm a Doctor of Chiropractic and own a small health care business, and collect guitars as a hobby.

    Looking for a military discussion forum with a more international membership and perspective. Lurking for now.

    Hi all I am prior service. I have served in 2 different militaries and in 2 different branches. I prefer not to say which ones at the moment, other than one was big and one was small.
    Here to learn and talk about military point of interest.

    Currently busying myself on a series of short military recognition videos. I have completed about 70 of a grand total of almost 500. I hope I will get them all finished but who knows. I think it will take me about 18 months to complete that many.

    Thanks all and see you in the forums.

    G'day

    Former regular poster as The Puss / The Puss MK 2 (I'm terrible at keeping track of accounts)

    I took a break from all things defence related when I left the R.A.N with 14 years service, 7 odd years ago and became a nurse.

    Had a look at the R.A.N thread and it looks like a lot of the old guys are still around so it will be interesting to lurk around a little bit.

    Cheers

    G'day and welcome back. Thought that you'd been quiet for a while. Always good to have an old salt onboard because definitely raises the quality of the membership. :D

    G'day all,

    Served in the Reserves in the 80's and currently working for an Emergency Service Organisation in Victoria. I've been a long time reader of this forum and have finally made the jump to being a member.

    Thanks for allowing me to join.
