Any U.S. Veterans on this forum?

(1/6) > >>

Zak Sparrow:
I thought I would start this and inquire as to how many veterans there are on this forum? I have met several while visiting the phils and know the veteran community in the phils faces a unique set of circumstances living there. I would be interested in sharing these experiences, if anyone else is? looking forward to your replies.

I did spend 4 years in Iraq an Afghanistan as a civilian contractor working with Army HQ units dealing with knowledge management from an IT perspective.
