  • Absolutely,

    I actually found out about it through John Penn. Not sure if you know who that is. He's a SSgt that's getting out from here next month and he has a buddy that works down there. As for the networking absolutely! This is why I feel lucky for the "right place right time" for a change but now I have to see "who I know" so thanks a lot bud for any help at all.

    No, March Air Base is actually going to be hiring 5-6 conrollers by the end of the year. I am trying to do all I can to get in there. Be 25, get in as a DOD and live in SO CAL. Life would be great!

    I wanted to get in contact with you because I am still up here in "the suck" that is 29 Palms and my time is coming to an end as my terminal has been approved and I will be out of here Nov. 18th. Now, I am selected for the FAA and just sitting and waiting for my FOL now but I wanted to contact you because I just got some good information that March Air Force Reserve Base down there in Moreno Valley (i'm sure you know where) is going to be looking for between 5-6 people by the end of the year. I am trying to do all I can to see who "i know" that can help me maybe get in there. It would be an absolute amazing opportunity and I love that area and would love to get one of those slots. Like I said I am selected for the FAA but would turn it down for this job at March. Is there anyone you may know I can contact or maybe even better? I know I'm coming out of the blue with this and I am asking a lot but I really want one of those spots.

    SSgt Young,
    After reading the prior messages it is you! It's Peters, though you may not remember me the only way you would is back in 06 I ran a 300 pft and you were there doing the timing being supportive as ever. Anyhow this is a good way to get in touch with you. How are things and where are you now? I'm a Sgt now and picked up pretty quick getting two meritorious's after the school house in Oki and now I'm in 29 Palms and can't wait to leave this place. Don't ask how I got here b/c I don't know and no one else does either. Been in 29 now for a little over a year. I'm actually here with Justin Rodriguez.. Gunny now and I'm sure you know who that is. I recently just got selected during this last panel for WI and my EAS is not til December so I'm pretty lucky in that sense. Anyhow, hope all is great on your end and hopefully the name rings a bell.
    I guess I dont know you after all, lol. I was supposed to go to Yuma for MACS but they ended up sending AC1 Butler, in 06ish. Maybe you were my POC for Yuma... if not I probably heard one of our junior guys talking about A school and I heard your name. Manny, Hendrix, Green, Cruz, Desouza, Mcdaniel and Payan are all of my younger guys. Chances are, you know some of them. Thanks for the help with Gunny Seals, she had a major impact on me.
    SSgt, I feel like I may know you. When were you an instuctor? I've been trying to track down Gunnery Sergeant Seals for a while now, she was my primary back in 01. lost coms a few years back. Any chance you can help me with that?
    SSgt Young...this is Cpl Generette. You were my instructor at the school house but I'm sure you get that all the time. Anyway, I'm getting out later this year and I'm looking for a job. I never thought it would be this hard but I've already put together my resume for the FAA and now I'm looking into what it takes to get into the DoD. Seems like you're the man to talk to around here so I'll be seeing more of you.
    Well I applied for the VRA announcement on March 4th and recieved letter of consideration March 31st. Had my interview April 24th and recieved my tentative offer letter. The main hold up was the fucked up psych eval but finally got my clearence in December. Just recieved my Firm Offer Letter last month when a school date was madw available. As long as you get selected and don't fudge the MMPI (whack ass psych eval) then it shouldn't take that long. But shit your only a few more years from retirement then with all your connections I'm sure you can get a DOD spot wherever you want.
    I opted to get out last August. Recieved an offer for Nor Cal TRACON last March and am set to class up finally this March. I'm from Sac and it's a level 12 facility so pretty hard to turn down, even with the bonus and getting selected for Gunny. That TERPS billet was really the deal maker for me, I would have enjoyed being in So Cal and it would have been very beneficial for my career. Instead they were pushing recruiter duty and I didn't want anything to do with that.
    Well I hope all is well with you, keep in touch. Semper Fi!
    SSgt Young I would definitely appreciate that. I was given the number to a Major Burnsen (hope I am spelling that right) but no answer when I call. I would love to work there since my fiancee lives in Triangle and going to grad school in Fredericksburg. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.
