 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
At present, I work a very part-time job at Academi, formerly known as Blackwater, USA.  It gives me something to do, puts a little cash in my pocket, and keeps me current on variations of the English language, as spoken by younger generations of the U. S. military. 
Other Comments:
Put 10 years into the Marine Corps, and then 12 more into the Navy (I know, I'm a confused individual). After retiring from the military, served 8 years as a Virginia Beach police officer until retirement (disability),  Worked for Blackwater USA, from 2002 to 2005, training Navy personnel in firearms skills. Deployed to Iraq, in 2004, as an independent security contractor for Blackwater. Worked for a different company, on the SBX-1, for 5 months (in 2006) as leader of a security detachment. SBX-1 is a sea-going radar platform, which is under the auspices of the Missile Defense Agency. At present, I  enjoy the luxury of choosing part-time employment that interests me.  I may be retired from the military, and civilian law enforcement, but I am too young to do nothing for the rest of my life.  My work philosophy now is "When it isn't fun anymore, its time to move on."  Member of Veterans of Foreign Wars, Fraternal Order of Police, Knights of Columbus, Sons of Confederate Veterans, and Military Order of the Stars and Bars.
