    Nothing.

    I am not going to spend the couple months a year I have in the rear working 2 jobs.

    The pizza guys seem to make bank though.

    unless I get a 2nd car that won't really work, my car isn't the most fuel efficient vehicle :o

    I'm trying to pick up a geo metro right now for the daily driver

    You could try looking into security jobs(ones for special events, concerts, conventions) that are "at will employment". Meaning they'll work around your schedule and you can work as little/much as you want.

    friend of mine goes to all the exchange stores (got one or 2 for each branch on the island here) buys EVERYTHING thats on sale, then marks it up and sells it on ebay for like 100-200% return and they are still dirt cheap, hes into buying in bulk as well, he makes close to 10k a month doing this with his wifes help for shipping and stuff...pretty crazy, met alot of people that just work night jobs at random places aswell

    What exchanges is he going to because I haven't seen any here that sell items for that cheap. At least not cheap enough to turnaround a 100% profit. Especially being here on the island.

    As long as you pay taxes on any money you make, it shouldn't be illegal :dunno:.

    You don't pay taxes on the items you buy.
    The exchange and commissary are privileges, they are there for the military member and their dependants. Not there for you to make money off of.

    See also Armed Services Commissary Regulations (ASCR) C4.2 RESTRICTIONS ON PURCHASES

    When I was active my unit was the same way, not that anyone outside of our headquarters battery could have ever had time to hold a second job.

    Bootleg DVD's and CD's. Porn is the big seller. If we go underway it's instant profit. I do a lot of laptop repairs and ps2/xbox mods too...
