Here is September 2008 with my Platoon of Truck Drivers and Fuelers before we deployed.
I am on the far right, My partner(PLT Leader/LT) is on the far left.
FANTASTIC group of guys and gals... SOLDIERS all of them.
The kid behind the flag in the front row is my Soldier who lost his right foot below the knee. 5 others were Purple Heart Recipients during our deployment.
My LT on the left was in Command of a Company this past year in Iraq.
She was medevac'd when her base was bombed and she was blown up.
You heard about it on the news, the worse rocket attack in many years and killed 6 Soldiers.
They were her Soldiers.
I LOVE MY GUYS!!!  
Headed north from Kuwait to Iraq, I was in charge of this whole plane load of Soldiers.
Sometimes it feels like herding cats! lol
In Kuwait, on our Unit Concrete Barrier.
 
GOTTA get pumped up before you go on mission!!
 
 In the Army for over 20 years running 5 days a week and THIS was my first 5k race... in IRAQ! lol
 
GOTTA LOVE CAV!!!
Cowboy Hats and Spurs!!
 
Not a great smile but this was my Bronze Star ceremony.
 
How's that Jeff?
Does that show who I am?
OH WAIT... that was all the serious stuff!
Now here I am with Andy after we cut up the white 73 GTS...

I travel quite extensively to producer locations, both out in the field and to corporate offices. Some of the areas are great, some require that I carry firearms. I absolutely love my job!






Typical compressor station




Typical well site











Typical Appalachian well access roads. This is why I build Jeep Cherokees for my business use!









Typical Appalachian wells

BTW, I am not in these pictures but will post some in the members pictures section. I would never trade jobs with anyone, as the folks I deal with are great, the job is a constant challenge, and I drive through some of God's most beautiful country.

Well, the guns and Jeeps are mine, but the quads are supplied. It is great except when the locals decide that they don't want you poking around certain areas and decide to confront you with assault rifles or you look down on your chest and see the tiny moving red dots. Then it gets dicey.

You guys have pretty interesting jobs. I'll counter that My technical title at work is "warehouse manager", for a small three store chain of pharmacies (no I can't get you drugs, only OTCs and seasonal items here, ha). Unofficlally it's jack of all trades, from setting up computers, selecting items for purchase, designing planograms, setting retails, etc etc etc..

 I am either seen with a clipboard taking inventories, a two wheeler, or in front of the computer with Excel open.

I am a Union Electrician, and I love my job. To watch construction come together is pretty awesome. The project that I am on now is one that we are not supposed to talk about. I just wish it were closer to home. I will post some pics when I make it to my moms computer. Seems all of my work pics are there.
