Hello from Kosovo

Post by Aikibiker » Sat Nov 26, 2005 10:55 am

I am a Security COntractor working on a US military installation in Kosovo.

I have been lurking on this site for almost a year and thought it was finally time to join.

If you have any questions ask away.

Thanks for the welcome guys. I have been lurking here for a while, it is a really good forum.

No need to PM me for employer info. I am not working for one of the really high speed low drag companies like Blackwater or Triple Canopy. I am more of a glorified security guard then anything else. Although I get to carry an automatic weapon and my uniform looks like something from Rommel's Afrikorps. I am working for Group 4 Global Risks. We are a sub contractor on this project for ITT. If you are interested in this kind of work I found the job listing at Wackenhut.com. If you come out to Kosovo IM me and we will get together and watch some Zombie movies.

As for the nuts and bolts of the job, I am afraid I can't say to much, but is more due to confidentiality then it being all glamorous and such. Kosovo is a rather low risk posting. The people here actually like Americans since we saved them from genocide. They are a lot more interested in putting their lives back together then in messing with us.

Welcome to ZS! Make sure to go and post something, especially in the Firearms and Personal Experiences forums. Something you know could one day save someone's life. Take care over there, and enjoy ZS.
