In what branch of the military did you serve, and why did it allow you to train with spec ops soldiers?
I joined the US Air Force and was flagged to work with what is commonly known as "Joint Services" -- in the basic sense, all branches of the US Military and government.
I was given an extremely high clearance and training to match the objectives assigned to me. My official title was Wideband and Satellite Communications Systems Spec, with a concentration on Engineering and Installations.
I also worked in Base Installations Security Systems and a host of other duties as needed. It was not all technical by far. I learned many things during my time in the service of my country. Some of these were "spooky," to say the least.

Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

Maybe it has something to do with his incredibly thick glasses. Hmm, obsessed with martial arts, guns and knives...this would have to be the only man in the world with penis envy.I'm not drowning my sorrows, I'm preserving them in alcohol.

EDIT: What's the bet this guy tried to join the military but they wouldn't have him because of his eyesight.I'm not drowning my sorrows, I'm preserving them in alcohol.
