WOW Robyn,
As my service was wrapped up my spouse and I found an Army PhD program, but we decided to take a trip to Fort Bragg and OEF instead.  It is very cool you were able to earn a PhD and from MIT is even cooler!


US Naval Academy Class of 1960
Four years on ADM Rickover's engineering staff.
Two years on an old Talos guided missile cruiser
Five years at MIT graduate school - Masters, Professional, and PhD engineering degrees
Two Supervisor of Shipbuilding tours
A Spanish Navy shipbuilding liaison tour
A naval logistics tour.
Retired on 20 as an O5 - Commander
34 years as a Navy contractor - all in the same program. Project Manager: Once as male and twice as female.

I had a good run until I fully retired six years ago at age 77.

Robyn
June 2021: Orchiectomy
July 2020: Full Time
Aug 2019: Started HRT
Dec 2019: Hair Feminization Surgery

I ETS'd out after 10 years and 6 months of service in the North Dakota Army National Guard in December 9th, 2019. E5 but not pinned, Master Driver, Crew Served Weapons Instructor, and Allied Trades Specialist. Full time serving for 3 years of the duration of my service. I miss it but what I've become since then I still can't believe it's real.

@Danielle Atheria
Dear Dani:
Thank you for "reporting for duty and checking in" here on the Roll Call thread.
Your service is very appreciated, thank you.

I served in the US Air Force in my pre-college years.

Regarding Military Services... all are important and all are good outfits to belong to....
Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard and the new Space Force are the armed forces of the United States. The Army National Guard and the Air National Guard are reserve components of their services and operate partly under state authority.

Again Dani, thank you for your service and thank you for posting here on the Roll Call thread.

Really happy to be here! I suppose I should be more voluble about my career: Spent almost two years in training 1978-1980 due to "needs of the Air Force" - they taught me Korean and then decided they needed me more as a Spanish linguist. Spent 4.5 years at Offutt, then 4 years as an instructor at Goodfellow. From Goodfellow I went to Davis-Monthan for 3-ish years, and then to Howard AFB (RIP) for almost five. Moved from there to Hurlburt, where I retired. I spent a large amount of time deployed to Central and South American doing various odd things. After retirement, I went into IT and CyberSecurity, and spent about 18 years as a contractor. I'm 100% government-free now, working in Cyber in the civilian world and having a great time.

Cheers

D

Hey WELCOME Krista! 11+ years seems like an eternity . .

I was BORN in the Marine Corps, the rank of "Newborn", does that count(?) it's where my parents met in the late 40's but dad always said "don't ever VOLUNTEER for anything"!

I enlisted with "Pan American" instead aren't they the ones who taught the Air Force how to fly "trans-pacific" post-WWII?  ;D Actually worked at New York's flying boat terminal, met some of the Boeing 3-14 Captains . .

"But it's no use now," thought poor Alice, "to pretend be two people!
"Why, there's hardly enough of me left to make one respectable person!"

Thank you Chloe

And it feels like an eternity. My dad was also a Marine during the whole Vietnam thing.
Wow that sounds like it was an interesting job.
