    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.
