    Just curious, thought it would be cool to find out what every one does for their income. I would say what do you do for a living, but some of us dont really consider it a living, more like a matter of life. Ok, I'll go first. As most of you already know or can tell I am a United States Marine. Been doing it almost 8 years and have a few more to go. I have achieve the rank of Staff Sergeant (which was no easy feat in such a short time) and i am stationed in Yuma, AZ. What about the rest of you?

    Joey,

    Thank you for the service to our wonderful country, stick it out for the 20 if you can cause having that extra income will be nice when you retire. If anything join the reserves when you get out to get your 20. Now for me I am a subject matter expert (SME) for Trainers that train Insurance agents for one of the top companies. I started out at the help desk fixing the agents issues now Im trying to get it before it starts. And you are right it is an ends to a means right now, civilian life is very different so when you do get out make sure you have all your ducks in a row and always CYA :crazy:. Again thank you for your service.

    I work in mental health also?
    Most of our patients have charges pending and it's part of our job to get them ready to go through the court system.
    I've been there about 1 1/2 yrs.

    I also run a few web sites, which I've been doing since 1999.

    I'm an automotive technician. and it makes me crazy at times. (hence the screenname) i work in a chrysler/jeep dealership. we're a full service dealership. that means we work on EVERYTHING. until recently i was the shop foreman. but, i gave it up to go back to being a flat rate line tech. i make much more money flat rate. there's no money in lower management in this industry.
