Yeah bro i have alot of family over there right now with no college degree making more than that...they do work 12 to 14 hours a day every day so if u think abuot it if u did that here u could make the same about if u hustled...just my take on it. I almost went over there for the same reasons when i got out of the air force 6 months ago but the cons out weighed the pros....

That and it will look good on a resume for future jobs. It tells a potential employer that you will literally go to the ends of the earth for your work.

I got a job offer in iraq....you know what? I won't do it, too many risks, many long hours...if i work the same here, I would make about the same, plus, i will have my wife and kid with me....that's very important to me.

If I were single I'd leave tomorrow.
I've got friends with the Blackwater Group that could put me to work right now.
The pay and experience will be like nothing you've ever seen.
Is it possibly dangerous?
Yeah, it can be, but it's up to you to decide what kind of life you want; boring and routine or something different.

I would and have picked the latter every time.

Did it most of my life and I have no regrets.

Ricky, I seen your dads name through the company mail. Its not Halliburton anymore. Its all KBR
If you go try to get to a bigger base. Less action, if you know what I mean.
I dont know how it is at FOB C1 but if its like where I am at. Not a good place to be.

Ricky you wanna leave? I guess it would be a good move and I agree with Jason that it would look good to an employer reviewing your resume. And if you go be careful. Very careful
