Greetings! I am COL Glenn Goddard, an Army officer with more than 29 years in the service both Active and Reserve. My partner is LCDR Andy Sheep, more about him further down. RHIP.
I enlisted as an E-3 after college and worked my way up through the ranks to Colonel. I have lived in Korea, the Philippines, the United Arab Emirates, and Iraq. I performed two tours of Iraq for a total of 24 months BOG.
As you rise in the ranks you start flying. A lot. I got into this frequent flyer game back when I returned from my first tour of Korea in 1987. Didn’t progress a lot until the late 90′s and then started quite a bit. I have been a 1K on United continually since 2003 and an MVP Gold on Alaska Airlines continually since 2004. These are my two main programs, but I am enrolled in almost every domestic airline’s program. For hotels, I am a Platinum in Marriott for the last six years straight, but also Gold in Hilton, and dabble in all the others.
I command the 354th Civil Affairs Brigade and just relocated to Arlington, Va. Sad to leave Hawaii, but it will be nice to be on the East Coast for the first time in my life. It also means that I must be more creative in racking up my miles since it was easy in Hawaii and Alaska as everything was a long distance flight from there! I do look forward to now attending more events since I am closer to a lot more cities than before. Hope to see you at one of them!
Hi, my name is Andy Sheep, and I’m a LCDR in the US Navy. I’m a doctor, currently doing an outservice residency in Emergency Medicine at UPenn in Philadelphia. I joined the Navy during medical school at Temple Med School, also in Philly, going through the HPSP program. I did an internship at the National Naval Medical Center (currently Walter Reed) in Bethesda, then did 6 months of training in Undersea Medical Officer (UMO) Candidate school at Groton, CT and Panama City, FL. I did two UMO utilization tours, two years in Bahrain, two in Guam, before coming back to Killadelphia…sorry, Philadelphia
Planning to start my own website, I saw that the good COL Goddard had already created one very similar to what I had envisioned; I asked him if I could join him instead of start from scratch, and he was cool with that. I joined this website because I’ve squandered many past opportunities to collect miles during military travel, and wanted to save my fellow sailors (soldiers, marines, airmen, coasties, etc.) the same regrets I have.
