 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
I tried the usual government contact jobs after taking a full week of retired life. I found out that it is true - tigers do eat their young and went back to doing what I enjoyed most - helping people. I started work with MWR. It's not exactly the same, but it feels good to be a help to the Sailors and Marines. It also keeps me off the streets making the city safe. Now if I can just figure out how to stay ahead of the cost of living out here. That's my never ending challenge.
