Hi everyone,


I am Jake Rhoads, currently active duty in the Army. I'm posted at Fort Bragg, NC with the 82nd Airborne, 4th Brigade, 73rd Cav, Delta Co. I have been in the military since 1999 as a reservist and in 2008 I went active duty. I just got back from southern Afghanistan (right next to the Pakistan border) on September 10th of this year. While deployed I managed to get my rank of SGT, which is pretty quick for my MOS. I'm currently a 92A, automated logistics specialist however, since being in the 82nd I've not done my job one day. I've been a cav scout cause there isn't much need for logistics guys in the 4/73rd. I was the RTO for the CSM of the Squadron and the SCO when he accompanied him outside the wire. I'm coming up on the end of my contract in 01NOV2013 and I am trying to transition into the civilian police force in Texas (more about that in a relevant discussion). It's nice to be here and I appreciate all of your hard work and dedication to our country and it's people. God Bless.

Welcome from the great state of confusion Florida!  Ft. Bragg was my first duty station and in the late seventies it was not somewhere I wanted to stay! My Father retired from the Eighty Duece and my younger brother also was in the 82nd, the 1/325th IN if I am not mistake.  I served with the 18th ABN Corps until I got my GT score up and got the ell out of there.. Thank you for your service and good luck in your search to join another tight but sometimes disfunctional family!

Thank you! I was actually in the 18th ABN Corps here at Bragg for my first couple years before I could get a transfer to 82nd side. I was in the 44th Medcom 28th CSH. It was like a soup sandwhich in there, no joke. 24 months in that unit and I never received one evaluation. When I went to 82nd I had all my evaluations that I had wrote for myself, and my 1SG signed off on them cause nobody had anything else to send me to 82nd with. Since getting here to 82nd I was immediately groomed to be an NCO, taught and mentored. I love the 82nd with a passion because of their professionalism.
