IM BACK! Repairing Appliances in the Army
« on: May 10, 2013, 11:47:35 PM »
Hey everybody.  I used to come to this website all the time then I stopped for a while.  I just wanted to let everybody know that I am back and strong.  I ended up joining the Army.  I just finished basic training and now I am going to AIT; where I am training for the job 91C (utilities equipment Repairer)  which is a fancy of saying that I will be repairing appliances in the Army.  I will be using this forum to keep everyone updated at what I am learning as I go.  Take care.

Awesome. If you work on some of the newer stuff keep us posted about them.Joining the Army is a great way to gain some valuable experience as well. When you get back into civilian life you will be a step above the rest.  O0

Very good, Ron. Our military has probably produced more GOOD technicians than all other schools combined. Be positive and get every school offered. You have a great future.
