If you hold a current Chief, DDE 4000 or above & have or can get a TWIC, there are many positions in the oil industry open in the Gulf. Most are based out of Louisiana, but air travel is easy in & out of New Orleans. Most work schedules are 28 days on / 14 days off. Once hired you can usually find even time options. Day rates vary but range from $700 to $1,000 p/day plus benefits. Contact the 8th district for more info about required certifications if interested. Good luck & thanks for your service!

he forgot to mention he is over 6 feet tall, per federal regs, so if they sink he can wade ashore.

GO NAVY!!
Indeed, I did not meet the "regs", so after two years in the engine room of a 210, they sent me to NAVY flight school.
The NAVY trained me well, but you forgot to mention that the CG is the hard nucleus about which the NAVY forms in time of war............lol
