Im catm2005 / Moderator #11, I used to post on here as Methodeous but changed my name due to the many PM’s asking if it was a type of drug name. Well its not!

So anyway, Im a Staff Sergeant in the USAF Security Forces/ CATM ( combat arms training and maintenance ) I’m a firearms instructor and weapons maintainer for a large, high ops tempo Security Forces squadron. I enjoy my job for the most part, however I’ve chosen to get out of the military in mid May just as soon as I get back from Iraq. I’m currently in Iraq right now, this is my 3rd tour in this lovely country. I’ve been interested in LE for a long time and have had a hard time trying to decide which dept I’d like to work for; or where I want to live for that point. So I’m actively looking at this point. Putting in inquiries and applications in everywhere, even England.

Ive been on PL since April of 07, however I usually dont say much because I will never talk about something that I’m not 100% sure of. I dont blow smoke up people arses and I expect the same from others towards me. I’m pretty easy going guy, as a moderator ill try to help anyone out on any topics here, If anyone has any questions at all, feel free to PM me or send a anthrax letter.

Oh, and I dont have a troll wackin stick, I prefer a .357 Magnum, Troll Special :)

This is the wet season. I was there in 04-05 and we got drenched the last month we were there. Sucked packing pallets in the rain.

The best time of year to be in Iraq. How did you like our christmas turkey catm? Or was the line too long ;-). When do you leave here by the way?

Good luck finding a department to join! I'm on the same quest but I think I might have already found my next home.

Sure do. I was in the 421 EFS. In fact I was at Balad on 11 Sep 04 when the SF was hurt by the mortart attack. There was a call for O neg. at the hospital and I was taken down there by our med tech to donate if necessary. They had so many folks, they turned people away.

I was an RTO for one of the squads during the 1041 mission. I really liked Balad, had a nice movie theater and subway. PX wasnt bad at all either. The chow hall was excellent as well.

Chow halls were all much better than AUAB if you have been down there. BX is also small and lousy, but the theater is brand new. I recruited a kid who is an SF and was down at Moody. You might know him, send me a PM, I'll answer when I get back from my hourly patrol.

an MRE?? Ouch, I haven't seen one of those since I got here and I'm real happy about that. Why didn't you take the Subway alternative ;-). Next time come visit me at the Convoy Guard Force and I'll hook you up with a Halal Meal, some of those are better than MREs ;-)
