What do you do for work?

Post by Marine grunt » Tue Apr 22, 2003 5:23 pm

Just curious how people make there living. Im a full time firefighter in a small city in massachusetts. I got on in 1995. Sometimes boring, sometimes fun, sometimes scary and sometimes sad. Best job in the world, wouldnt trade it for anything.

Just flipping through old posts. An interesting enough topic, so I figured I would reply.

I'm a computer programmer. Not the most glamorous job, but without people to tell them what to do, computers are worthless.

Thought you might like this. I retired in 96 and thought I'd take life easy. I enjoy doing auto upholstery. I do show cars and street rods. One of my cars made cover in December on Rod and Custom mag. Also make weekend trips to local drag strip in my "56 Chevy" runs 10.80's in the 1/4 mile. Loving life in West Virginia!

I am a military historian and author. In 2003, I published "The Gulf War Chronicles."

I have been working fulltime since last October on research and interviews for my next book, "Marines in the Garden of Eden."

I have interviewed more than 100 Marines from Task Force Tarawa and have collected thousands of pages of official and personal accounts of the battle of An Nasiriyah.

"Marines in the Garden of Eden" will tell the story of An Nasiriyah as seen through the eyes of the Marines who fought there.

what i do...

Post by combat crayon » Tue Mar 01, 2005 11:39 am

after they found out i could draw when i came back from the desert with A-1/505, they pulled me up to brigade to be the brigade draftsman a 3/82nd.

after that i became a multimedia illustrator.. stayed in 10 years and after a couple of years as creative director at Bank of America in NYC and some freelance record label work, I'm the Webmaster for the biggest Hip Hop radio station on the planet.. HOT 97.

Army training comes in handy when 50 cent and his enemies are shooting it out in the hallways.

haha.

HOOAH!

I basically poked around here and there, and finally settled on my current job, I am Head maintenance at a hotel, which really doesn't mean much since I am the only maintenance man here :D , but I do like my job, it keeps my mind occupied, I am a jack of all trades, master of none.
