    Default New member - nothing special

    Hi there,

    Just thought I would join the crowd and see what everyone is talking about. I left active duty a few years ago and started RallyPoint.com. Glad to be here!

    Edited to give more info: I served 10 years of active duty, with my last assignment as an 18A at 5th Special Forces Group. I currently live in the Boston area.

    Welcome to the forum RP, great to have a Special Forces soldier on board as we get a number of questions from young people with regards to Special Forces which we serving and former soldiers of the regular kind cannot fully answer or answer at all.. We had another Special Forces soldier introduce himself ("green beenie" was his handle I think) and then faded into the background with great stealth... he was so stealthy we still cannot find him..

    Hope you enjoy the site and am looking forward to seeing your contributions going forward.

    Best Regards

    Welcome to Army Forums, Rally! I'll check your site out a little later today after I take care of some moderation duties.

    Glad to have you aboard from a former SEAL & retired Paratrooper.

    Mr. Weiss, seems like a thread was created about your company a while back on this forum.

    RallyPoint - Social Networking for the Military

    https://www.rallypoint.com/static_pages/about_us

    I have 23 years of service with nearly 14 years of active duty from my Army, Marine and NG activated time.

    I worked in the civilian sector for many years as an IT professional and when I retire before this decade is over; I will start networking again for that good civilian gig.

    Why did you not open a new thread to ask a question? And FT Lee is not a basic training but AIT location. Yea, that is a wives' tale which you have seen in old WWII training movies like Band of Brothers.
