    Where did you get your waste water training? The reason I ask is our little community college here in town has a great training program. We have students from all over the world come to study here.

    My handle pretty much says it all... or did for 15 years. Now I'm about 2 weeks away from a medical retirement.

    What will I do now? Good question. No too much call for disabled tankers in the civilian world.

    Basically I've had two careers, or lives as I call them.

    I spent about 21 years in the Army, 19 of them playing with unexploded bombs (EOD). Also managed to get a couple of college degrees while in the Army

    After retiring from the Army I ended up working for NASA as a contractor. So now I help analyze and put together spacecraft at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. I've got about 4 of them up there right now.

    Security/Exec.Protection...basically I'm "stationed" at the personal residence of the guy who owns a big national company that's based in the area. It's not the most glamorous job around but the pay is okay and I've gotten some good training for free.
    I also teach part-time at a martial-arts studio...lots of fun.
