    I noticed a lot of other military folk on the forums. So let's hear it, what's your MOS (or whatever your respective service calls it), rank, time in service, etc?

    Branch: Army
    MOS: 35M3LN7PF (35M = interrogator/HUMINT collector, 3 = SSG/E6, L = linguist, N7 = strategic debriefer, PF = fluent in Persian Farsi)
    Rank: SSG...I'm on the promotion list for E7 (SFC) since last year but I will probably just decline the promotion when my sequence number comes up and ETS
    Time in Service: Jan 11th, 2001 (just over 9 years)
    Current Duty Station: Fort Huachuca, AZ
    Current Job Title: Instructor
    Previous Deployments: Afghanistan 06-07, Iraq 03

    What about you guys?

    Don't fret Matth3w, after I got out of the marines, I joined an Army Reserve CI unit in PHX(yeah yeah Blasphemous) during college. Went through the agents course in Utah not AZ.

    You work with a lot of the guys I deployed with in Sierra Vista... TF Deuce, not the best name in a deployment I agree.
