What's your 1st General Order?..lol

I have been Security Forces for 20 years. I'm actually retiring in two weeks. Good luck with your career.

Just cruising the forum, this thread was definitely interesting. I really tried to read your entire post... now my brain hurts!! I need another bourbon...

 

It doesn't surprise me that you are doing something at that level of science. Have you ever visited the Hadron Collider?? Not really sure if that is the same thing you're involved in...

 

Me, I'm a retire Marine Chief Warrant Officer, hung that up after 25 years and continued to work for Uncle Sam on Parris Island, SC as a Federal Civilian Employee. I won't be retiring any time soon, I have a 10 year old daughter and a 7 year old son!

Currently I am a Toyota MDT. Worked a Honda dealer for 15 years. Before that I was a New Products Quality Engineer for Digital Equipment Corp. I took the early retirement package at age 26. My senior year of high school I had school in the morning, worked at DEC in the afternoon and went to college at nights. I bought my first Mach 1 as a graduation present to myself in 1983. A green '69 Mach 1 that I wish I never sold. I traded my '70 Cyclone Spoiler for my '73 in '85. I still have that Mach 1

I'm a Cop, going on 26 years. Prior to that I was in the Marine Corps. That being said, it won't stop me from boiling my tires off of my Mustang in the right situation.

I am currently active duty in the Navy. 9 years now. I was trained as a Firecontrolman, basically and electronics technician that works on weapons systems. I operate, maintain, and troubleshoot electronics, mechanics, radar, high pressure/low pressure air, hydraulics, pneumatics, high voltage amplifiers, and other great stuff. My weapon system is a 20MM gatling gun, 6 barrels, fires 4500 rounds per minute. It is designed as an Anti-ship missile defense weapon, but has been recently upgraded to be manually controlled in a surface fire mode to shoot at small boats with a thumb controlled joystick. I did that for 5 years onboard the USS Ford an FFG out of Everett, WA. For the last 3 years I have been a recruiter in Coeur D Alene, ID. I am headed back to Everett this coming April and looking forward to getting back to my real job. I am an E-6 and will likely be taking over a supervisory position when I get to my next command, which means less time troubleshooting and more time watching little kids (I call them kids, but I am only 27 myself). I hope to have other guys in the Everett/Seattle area that can maybe help me with some of the little tweaks I have planned for this car. I am seriously considering a full build project if I get a place with a big enough garage.

 

Go Navy!

No "real" job, I do cash jobs for friends and family. Pretty much anything and everything: mowing lawns, snow blowing, yard work, car repair, fixing anything (that I can) and the list goes on. I went to a local technical school for auto repair and have an associate's degree in automotive technology, I got a lot of credits for free while I was in high school. Hopefully that's not too long of a description, it doesn't fit on a business card I've tried.

I remember hearing that CIWS going off right above my shop. Loved that. I preferred the fleet over shore duty.

I suffer from same disease as many others here. Namely, we can't make our mind up what we want to do when we grow up! I've got a bunch of completely unrelated qualifications which don't help when looking for work. Eg, 11 years as a dry cleaner, 15 years in IT, now bought a business with a friend making security doors and flyscreens. Go figure? As long as it pays for mustang parts, I'm happy I 'spose.
