      i actually joined this thing to let other poeple know of my grief and to actually start writing about my day to day activities as a infantry marine thats currently not deployed and all the rediculous things that go on in my life. Oh and about my brand new adventure as a young husband.

    My dad and older brother were in the marines and my dad works for the government now. Having heard so many ridiculous stories about government "efficiencies" and military anecdotes, I can only imagine some of the things you have to say wink

    I'm in school so my job doesn't really count...

    Once your time is up in the military, you could go to school on a GI bill. My son spent 6 years as a Navy Nuke and after he was sprung, he took full advantage of the military benefits available for schooling. He managed to get most all tuition paid (and this was AFTER he got out). Plus, he got an expense check, monthly, just for going to school so he was able to finish college without working full time. It was a very generous benefit. He got a dual degree from U Of Washington: Astronomy and Physics.

          thats good but right now Ive been in for two and a half years and i got the same left so ima try some onlie basics while im in. Also I just got married and jumping out of the military and trying to find a job without at least 2 years of school would be tricky while also helping support our newly formed partnership. Itll probly force me to re-enlist so I have a little more time to save up enough money to comfortably transfer the civilian life.
