    Congrats Chris. Being employed and knowing that you can provide for your family must be a good feeling, even though it requires a pretty big sacrifice.

    Stay safe, and keep us updated if you can.

    Congrats, I have only been out of work since October. I hope that I too find something soon. Be safe over there, hate to hear that you will be away from your family.

    Congrats on the new job, sorry about the 'no family'. Everything happens for a reason.

    Good luck with your new job and I hope you are back with your family soon. I hope the job market will open up after the first of the year. My neighbor is out of work but has three companies wanting to hire her but they want to wait till after the first of January.

    First congrats and very best wishes. Second, I was once forced to work outside the US for a year because I couldn't find work here. Though I didn't like what happened to me, in the long term things worked out pretty well, and it was a good and interesting experience.

    Stay safe and feel proud of yourself. Though separated from your family, they know you are making a huge sacrifice for their benefit. That's something to be very proud of.

    Congratulations. Sucks that you will be away from the family, but jobs are a good thing. Make this an extra special Christmas. Good luck.

    Arrived in Kuwait 2 weeks ago. Weather is still good, hasn't started getting hot yet.

    Force Protection Training is going well. I should start full shifts 5-6 days 12+ hours per week.

    Miss the family and being able to log onto Defensive Carry every day.

    Good to see a few post today, to include the one about NJ, that state maybe not a total wash that I thought it would be when I left it. Good Luck NJ!

    I'll check in from time to time.

    Blessings!
