don't have a date yet. I'm somewhat interested in getting one of those contracted security jobs somewhere in the middle east. The problem is that I don't know the names of a lot of these companies, the ones I've heard of (Dyncorp, Blackwater) want former operators. I do have security experience (member of security team on 2 ships, qual'd on just about every small arm we use), I've just never been deployed to Iraq. I'd be more than happy to get a job in Qatar, U.A.E., Kuwait, etc. Can you guys help me out? Let me know what you think of these companies, honestly. I don't really have a lot of job opportunites due to my rate/mos. I don't like air traffic control, plus i suck at it. And there's really no civilian version of Operations Specialist, except maybe janitor (heh). Yeah, so any input would help.
