actually i just got back from a jobsite, and this "skid" we're working on is going to IRAQ.
Many, many of the civilians here are ex-military..I thought you were an MSF instructor.?. Its tough to be gone from family for so long.. If I had a newborn , dont think I would have come here. I got 3 boys 4, 5, 7 and they all boys...They all miss me too. Wife saying she dont think she can do it any longer...But she is shortsighted--I have a longterm plan here. I work in foodservice/ admin/warehouse. not glamourous but the troops gotta eat and i take good care of my soldiers! Whats a "skid"? who/what you do?

yup, w/ that kinda $, and the taxes setup for overseas, it can set you up financially for a while.

nothing wrong w/ what your doing.

electrical designer, design heat trace for plants. we keep pipes at temperatures to keep them from freezing. whether it be 32 deg. F or 500 deg. F

a skid is basically a structure that has a few pieces of equipment, vessels, piping. and they move everything in 1 piece vs all of them seperately.

MSF is part-time weekend job.

hello spectre.. Another expatriate reppin in the middle east.
Nice to meet you...what do you ride for a bike?
I think its easy to get on here cause the turnover is high--and if you got the skills/experience for some job classifications expect to be hired on the spot. Look for the job fairs that the company puts on in Houston.
My sons -father was the HR manager for all Iraq, he just went back home.

roger that FOB Rustamiyah just a few clicks south of Sadr City
on the edge of the T.O.D. triangle of death. Funny how peeps can talk the talk but when that 1st night of incoming they forget how to walk the walk. 50 demobs? Dammmit! Didnt they listen to the speeches when they processed in Houston?
