    Hello All.
    I got out of active duty 4/70 after 21 months with 1st FSR/FLC Da Nang. Early in '70 the Corps was releasing some MOS's early on their Enlistments. I chased "Prisoners" from Da Nang to MCAS El Toro. Less than week later I was Honorably Discharged as E-4 after 31 months of 36 month enlistment.

    EliminatorXR7 from Powder Springs, GA,
    with a liking for cigars and cars. OK.
    Current calling is a coater/finisher, cars?
    Only firearm listed is a Springfield Armory 1911A1.
    A veteran of the USN 1992-2000 AMS2. (?)
    Not much to go with but a Vet with a gun is all it takes.
    MI .45 lists U.S Coast Guard 1970 - 74; service in S.E. Asia.
    Calling West Michigan home with an "original wife and three children", cool!
    He's into fly fishing, cooking, travel, reading, handguns and politics & Constitutional issues.
    Perfect, I hope the 2nd is your forte
    A food importer (hmm any Brit food there?) and packs a S & W 1911PD.
    More in line and will admit as soon as I see some info on their 'About me'.

    FT-2 (E-5) USCG. I'm told that Fire Control Technician (FT) is an obsolete rating in the Coast Guard.

    Thanks for the clarify MI .45 on the fire-fighting role.
    When I served the basic fall back for any soldier when the SHTF was 11Bush, Combat Infantryman or even woman, plenty of female soldiers in combat have gone for an M16 or M9, same for the USMC when on the ground MOS 0311, prolly reverted to fire-fighting on any vessel, and the same held true for naval personnel when the fires started everyone was a fire-fighter. I am not sure how the USAF played out their basic survival SHTF roles, way multi tasked jobs, but even as a medic we couldn't get to a casualty until the fire was controlled in a structure or vehicle and we often 'played' fire-fighter before we could access things many of us never forgot, very worse end-game is a flame-out.
    Thanks for the lives you may have saved and the kit you salvaged from the beast.

    Canis... a naval service "Fire Control Technician" operates and maintains the electronic aiming devices for the ships large guns. I was a glorified Gunners Mate/Electronics Technician. As you said, "everyone's a firefighter" when the boats burning but that wasn't my primary duty.
    Wished to clear this up as I don't want accolades where none are deserved.
