I was in the air force, 2 yrs aircraft mechanics, 2 yrs tacp. Tacp is basically an airman attached to an army or marine unit as a soldier responsible for coordinating close air support. I did search and seizure missions with the 82nd and the 1st expeditionary marines, I suffered a shoulder injury which was not combat related, but it did kill my chances of being a a cop because I will more than likely reinjure myself detaining a large aggressive person. I'm still a bad SOB but I can't go around knocking everyone that doesn't want to go quietly. So being a responsible armed citizen and boxing coach for troubled youth is all I can do for my country and community.
