Spent most of my time in the Zhari district in Kandahar which I am sure many 10th MTN and Marines are used to since 2007
Went to college after leaving the military to be a paramedic.
Looking to maybe do some contract work in Afghanistan or possibly join the reserves and take a break from civilian EMS and do some mentor work before we pull out in 2014.
Any contractors can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.
Old thread, but dang, it's nice to see that there are other infantrymen on here.
