Spent 22 years, 6 months & 9 days (I was not counting) in the Air Force. It was fun and wanted to stay in longer but due to injuries/health reasons, I could no longer stay on active duty and had to retire. VA realized I am physically done and was rated 100% service connected disabled. The Air Force and the VA is taking care of me as I could no longer work.

Being not able to work sucks but the good news is that I have all the time in the world to do what I've always wanted to do and that is shooting and work on my US vintage rifles.

I am a manufacturing engineer for a major defense contractor doing aircraft modifications. I am an old school dinosaur with no degree, just 39 years ojt. I started after I returned from the Army. No jobs for an airborne infantryman in the civilian market so I went to work for Lockheed as a structures assembler building L1011 widebody jetliners. i can fabricate sheet metal parts, install them, rig systems and do trouble shooting. I've worked on P3C Orion sub chasers, C5 Galaxy cargo jets, Convair 440's, corporate business jets, Boeing 717 jetliners, small jet target drones and full size aerial targets made from F4 Phantom fighters. Even did a short gig as an inspector on the space shuttle Discovery when it was being built. Just don't ask me about anything electrical

I have over 25 years with the Feds and over 27 yrs between active duty and the reserves. Currently serving another tour in Iraq and am on the selection list to pick up a Division as CSM. If I get it I'll finish out my military career with over 32 yrs and 31 of those yrs would have been as a current parachutist!

I'm steelworker at a galvanizing plant. We galvanize steel coils. You know, the rolled up ones. It's a pretty good job for around here. We've been working off and on all year but right now I'm off on sick and accident. Gives me time to reload and clean my rifles.

Retired engineer. Spent 35 years designing and manufacturing in precision metalworking. Last eleven years as a consultant/trouble shooter for Castrol traveling around the country. Seen darn near every industry in the metal working field. Now I stay home, work in my shop making gun parts and related items, reloading, shooting, and reading constantly. Life is good, just start saving for retirement early so you have money for toys when you retire.
