    a few in the navy:
    MA (Master at Arms) = cop
    IT (Information Tech or something) = IT (noway :eek5:)
    AC = Air Traffic Controller
    AG = meterologist perhaps

    there are probably more but that should get you started.

    I have no personal experience with this yet, but how can having military experience really be a bad thing on a resume? Good schools + leadership + team working skills = win right?
