Pretty much the "oh sht" button on drilling rigs. Its pretty interesting so far. I just received my associates degree in industrial technology.
@greenheadkiller98

That's awesome and congratulations on your degree. Thanks.

I love working to make these guys and gals lives a bit better in their time of need. If you have a veterans home (or any retirement home ) around you, do yourself a favor and visit with the residence.
@my67falcon
Awesome. That is good. Thank you for doing what you do for the veterans. Thanks for sharing too.

Here are some photos of what else goes on. Our main transportation is a Bell 212 on and off, and occasionally we have to ride the boats in or out. I also do all of the flight scheduling and assist with loading/unloading cargo and bags.

Thanks for sharing. Wow that sounds awesome and exciting at the same time. Look kinda scary too.

Thanks for sharing. Cool looks like you working the ships and stuff. Before going into IT, I used to drive 18 wheeler and used to go into the ports in Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA a lot.

Okay cool. I pulled in the ports over here on the east coast back in the 90's. I did it for a while then went back over the road. Dealing with looking for a good chassis got annoying..LOL

Farming. One of the most unappreciated jobs ever. Without them we might just go hungry. Rock on.
