    KBR provides its own security now from what i've heard from their guys. might be worth looking into if you have the requisit military expirience. most the jobs they offer ot americans in supervisory though(basicly makeing sure the TCN's know what they are doing)

    Like any other job search, your ability to land a job depends on your background, experience and capabilities. Rather than target any particular company, do a job search with a location specification of the countries you might like to work in.

    thanks for the replies
    The pay isnt bad at all when you consider that the cash you are paid is walking around money or pure savings. You dont have to buy housing, food, or even clothing unless you elect to.

    If you're smart, you will come out with a paid for education, a nice resume, and plenty of experiance to land a high paying contractor job. You just might learn a thing or two beyond "liking shooting", good stuff that will keep you alive.

    If you want to make decent money someday, you have to pay your dues like everyone else.

    Right on, Sixto. And military service is worth a heck of a lot more than the money and the bennies (which are not at all insignificant). Heck, I'd do it again in a minute if they (and my wife) would let me!
