Casper's Military BioBeginning August 2004
Once I turned 18, I joined the U.S. Air Force after almost choosing the Navy (that would have been regretful). After joining, I went to boot camp for 8 weeks at Lackland AFB, San Antonio, Texas (Southern Texas in August YAY). From Lackland AFB I was sent to Port Hueneme, California to attend Tech School with, that's right, the U.S. Navy (I just can't get away from these guys).

My first duty station was in New Jersey at McGuire AFB/Fort Dix. What a trade, go from Navy to Army. I spent sometime there while taking multiple deployments, joining convoys for the Army as their personal mechanic. (They don't explain how your gonna be whored out to different branches when you join the Air Force). I did spend one of these many deployments serving a Navy Seabees detachment (whored out again). But never once did I work with, along side of or any other fashion with the Marine Corps. I do not regret this, as my treatment was awesome thus far.

I enjoyed this so much, I volunteered for a year in South Korea. I chose to be isolated for a year just to get the next base and assignment of my choosing. I toured the country going from the Southern tip where I was stationed, all the way to the DMZ which divides North and South Korea. Near the end of my year in S. Korea I was given the choice to either Go Army or Go Home. Gee I wonder.
