    Default I'm an American Soldier, vet of the Iraq war and this is my first GMC truck!

    Hello all,

    I'm a SSG in the NYARNG, I spent 2003 and all of 2004 in Iraq. Not all did two year deployments back to back but some of us are lucky I guess. I live up in the land of snow, good beer some of the best food and awesome hockey Buffalo, NY. We do have a great shooting community up here as I shoot competitively in the Army and all service meets. I'm a regionally ranked shooter and won the NYS TAG combat arms match this year. I've been power lifting and bodybuilding for a good part of my life and enjoy throwing steel around in the gym and in the garage. I've got a few MOS's in the military MP, mechanic and engineer. I like turning wrenches on classic auto's as it calms me and ticks me off all at the same time. Love to hunt and camp with my family. I just bought a 2011 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE extended cab, Z71 5.3L, 6 speed auto with the max tow/haul package. I was a tech at a Ford dealer years ago, I know there are Always TSB's. Any info or links you guys got to tech info is greatly appreciated.
    I am a American solder, I am a member of the finest fight force on earth, I am the bump in the night. I will defend the United states of American Against all enemies both foreign and domestic. Repent now all those who would do my nation and it's people harm; For when we come it will be too late.

    Welcome to the club. Good Hockey maybe. I am not a hockey fan. Just please don't say good football. The Bills are just as bad as my Cleveland Browns. HAHA.
    Thanks for your service.
