Re: Military career
The one thign I did like about the Air Force was that depending on your job you could make a lote more than the private sector, but conversly you could also make a lot less.
I was talking with a Flight doc who was a major with all of his bonuses and pays he claimed to be making about 120,000. That's low for a doctor, but he didn't have to worry about being sued or paying for anything typically used in a medical practice. Because of his position he sid he had to live on base, so he didn't have any mortgage payment, electric or water bills. He also didn't have to "prove" his competence by purchasing high priced houses, cars, clothes, or club memberships. He kind of had a captive patient list.
Then again my commander was essentially the Chief of Police and didn't receive the pay comensurate with that position.
You don't want to work. You want to live like a king, but the big bad world don't owe you a thing. Get over it--The Eagles
