gr8snkbite and I have talked in person about life after the military a couple of months ago as I retired recently and now have a "real job"...whatever that is.


Folks leaving the military often joke about having to get a "real job" or "figuring out what I want to be when I grow up"


Transition from the the military to civilian world after 20-30 years can be quite disconcerting and stressful. It's a totally different world than what we have been used to.


As he will soon discover, he is a highly valued commodity in the civilian world,. His biggest stress will not be "will I get a job" but rather "which job offer do I take".


No disrepect was intended for giving 30 years of Service to this nation.


Congratulations again and Thank you for the sacrifices you and your family have made for our freedom.
