    So lately i've been considering the idea of either going back to the desert, trukey, or any other country as a civilian contractor, probably for dynacorp

    Reasons for going: make more money, bout 5x times what I'm making now a month, provide better for my baby on the way.

    Reasons for not going: Won't be here when she's born, always away from home, might not make it back to see her grow up:

    Decisions decisions.

    Dude,

    I'm a government contractor and I have the same dilemma. I say don't do it because family is the most important thing besides Honda's. I was offered a job back in Pakistan at 250,000.00/year tax free and I turned it down because frankly I almost died there twice and I don't need the third time to be the charm. Stay safe and alive, pick a country like Qatar and bring your family with you. You can still make oaround 100K to 150K tax free and be safe.

    Fuck that. 12 Hours a day. 6 days a week. In Baghdad? Sounds like army just for a lot more money.

    Yea I'm used to it though, that's almost the same shifts I worked when I was there in the air force, plus just about every base AF cops go they work 12 + hours a day. It's not the hours I mind just the risk
