Introduce myself and pup

Postby green-hntr » Sat Feb 23, 2008 4:48 pm

Well I am recently separated from the Navy and have a 1 year old LAb, moved back to Lincoln to take a job, originally from Kearney. Its good to be home after 8 years of moving around. Havent been around this area for a long time so I am guessing scouting is gonna be a huge thing for me next season. If anyone needs a extra person or whatever look me up. Is there any local dog training groups around?


This was the last day of the season in New Jersey where I was last stationed.

Glad to hear someone is back! I spent 4 years recruiting in Kearney just so I could get back home for a while. Still have just under 6 years to retirement and then it's back to Northeast NE (that's where the wife is from). I grew up in SW NE but lived north of Kearney about 30 miles for the last 4 years. Good luck with the hunting. Let me know if you'll be SW ever. Still got a lot of buddies with some prime locations for duck/goose.
And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:

Most of my family is in Kearney still....I appreciate the offer. What do you do for the Navy? I was a Master-At-Arms. Good luck and be safe out there. If you are anywhere close to New Jersey I have plenty of people that would take you on a hunt up there.

I'm a Master-at-Arms too. I've been in since 94 and been a MA since 96. Back when you had to be an E-4 to be a MA, things sure have changed. I used to know most of the guys/gals in the MA community but since we went from 1500 to 9000...its a bit more difficult. Where were you stationed before NJ? I've been on the TR, Sewells Point K-9 (Norfolk), Recruiting, and now I'm at Mobile Security. Thanks for the offer. Might have to get together for a hunt when I'm home on leave.

I was a OS when I came in in 2000 and then cross-rated to MA in 2004. I was on the west coast on the USS FORD before becoming a MA and getting orders to deploy.....I mean NJ. I spent a tour down in Gitmo....which was loadssss of fun. I tried to go K-9 as a E-5 while at Lakehurst, NJ but that was a no go (too much seniority) or thats the story I got at the time. Oh well....the Navy was good for me and a heck of a stepping stone. Anytime you are here you are more than welcome to come along on a hunt. Stay safe out there.

NEBHunter,
That's great! I'd love to do a hunt sometime. I'll be in VA until next summer and not sure where from here yet. I'll be deploying before the season starts and miss it all :sad: . Trying to get orders to Omaha or Tinker AFB in Oklahoma. We'll have to stay in touch. My wife and I both ride. We never did rodeo though. We were with the Mason City Rodeo Club while I was back. Actually thought I was going to be home on leave for the Homecoming Days this year but my leave had to be pushed back. Stay in touch and Good Luck with the rodeos and Huntin' season.
