The sea-bees are hurting very bad for CE's (Construction Electricians) who are bonafide electricians that worked in the trade outside the Navy. Every unit should have an electrician, but they don't, and seabees and marines are going without heat, power, or the benefit of a safe installation.

Quickest entry would be as an active reservist, they'll even take older guys. The amount of respect and positive attention you will get from other service members because they need your skills, that alone makes it worthwhile, but the pay is good too, better than you will get anywhere except on a time-job. The payscales are meant to be deceiving and look alot smaller than you will actually bring in. Don't forget to add allowances for housing, perdiem, combat, seperation, and such, then the persian gulf tax-free zone. But, don't make up your mind based on pay, do it because its the right thing and you won't regret it.

And let me add that if I was going to be in that general area of operations I would want to be armed with more than a pair of Kleins.

You would need those weapons a lot more there in New Jersey, then where I am!

I do not leave the base, and have a few thousand heavily armed Soldiers and Marines looking out for me! Statistically, I'm much safer here than in any major city in the US.
