C'mon! Stand up for all those things you believe in! Spread freedom to the world!

Plus, it's about the best safety net you can land in when you've done your time. Free health care for life, guaranteed mortgage, tuition reimbursements, etc.

Go for it.

I considered the Air Force over here for awhile as I wanted to train to be an air traffic controller.

You were considering working as an air traffic controller? You're nuts.

Have you seen the movie, Pushing Tin?

Gotta agree about the insurance jobs, that and financial advisor jobs.

I had a second call from a major insurance company this week who I already interviewed for previously out of curiosity. When I told the cold caller I'd already seen Mr so and so and been interviewed she did not know what to say.
I'm sure some people do very well in insurance - just seems like a lot of turnover
