    In the civilian world, I started with a little security officer work, then became a federal police officer. Afterward I became a municipal police officer, and like Sgt Lep, I worked in multiple positions. I retired as the deputy chief.

    Since then I've been involved with my kids and in Scouting. I co-owned a graphics company for a while. Went to college and got two masters degrees.

    Since then I've been primarily an autodidact and play at being a moderator here at LN.com. I work for Sgt Lep and he is a slave driver. He did promise me a 10% pay raise, but on top of $0, that doesn't add up to much.
    Yea alot of people on here seem to have joined the Police force. Grats on the raise!

    2571, now 2621, Morse Code Intercept Operator---best job I ever had, but does not translate well into the civilian world except for one particular government agency....so I ended up as trial attorney inner-city courts of Boston, a wonderful job where you get to meet plenty of very very nice people Monday through Friday. LOL.
    -And you did that for how long?

    I enlisted for avionics/electronics. The Marine Corps gave me legal services in boot camp. They then gave me a choice between the two. I had a D.I. who highly recommended legal, told me to bust my butt in MOS school and get selected to the next for 7 months. Told me then to bust my butt in the field and there was a program the Marine Corps had where they would send me to college. I took his advice and went legal.

    Initially was a notereader/transcriber and typed courts-martial from stenographic notes. Then went to college for 2 years (the program my D.I. talked about), and was a court reporter from '83-87. Got out in August '87 and have worked as a court reporter ever since. (As you know, I also coach, but that is nonpaying.)

    Sounds quite successful. A good friend of mine is looking into engineering as well. Also on a sidenote, I think I have seen you on Y!Answers before, unless it is somebody with the same username who is a Marine...

    Aww, now I'll have to promise EVERYone that! And I could be a freakin thirty star general as a mod and still make what Zulu does....what I make now LOL.

    Consider me a 'jack of all trades' renassiance Leprechaun.

    I weep for what this country is becoming, and fear for my children and grandchildren's future if any more democrats gain national office. We lose more and more freedoms every single day to creeping nannystatism and those who vote for Democrats only want to increase that. Anyone voting for a 'dem' is someone who likely wants to take everything YOU have worked for and mortgage your kids future as well.
