    Good Afternoon!

    I'm SSgt Andrew Forrest, USAF, 2011-Current.

    I've been stationed at JB Langley-Eustis, Va and NAVSTA Rota, Spain (where I currently am).
    I'm looking at creating a Local group here in Spain and was wondering if there was a few others down here. I'll be passing on the group to someone who will be here longer, but if you guys know anyone else in Spain lemme know!

    Thanks
