    I'm sure the pay is at a high scale, but certainly not 50K @ month. Search the web for job leads, I suppose. It offers adventure and danger.

    someone mentioned it to me today, I tried to look it up on yahoo but got nowhere, I'd want AT A MINIMUM, 2 - 45's 2- flak jackets worn at the same time and my HK and all thew ammo I could carry, not to mention the right to shoot anything that looks remotely suspicous, and the right to run over anything that wears a diaper on it's head and gets in the way. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Engineers can work out some deal so that you sign up for I think 5 years, come back with some intense money, but most of all civilian veterans status. Which means your medical benefits are paid for the rest of your life.

    I'm going to talk to a recruiter which represents several energy companies on Tuesday about going over to Iraq.

    They already told me that the same gun laws apply there to American citizens as we have to follow here in the States.

    So in other words...
    -If you DO apply deadly force to defend your own life, you could end up in jail for a long time, possibly for the rest of your life.
    -If you DON'T apply deadly force to defend your own life, you could end up the star of your own Internet video. Too bad it'll be a snuff film.

    A couple of my friends sent in an application but never heard from them. It was 2K a week, they provide you with a bulletproof vest, driving a tanker truck.

    Try looking here for Brown and Root (a division of Halliburton) jobs.
