The signal corps was my stepping stone into civilian government service, like so many other people.
You learn things in certain military skills that are not taught in colleges, the only way to learn it is to serve..When I was getting ready to depart
the service, I was talking to the civilian chief of the site where I was and he asked me a simple question..
"You're getting out soon.... you want a job?" All the civilians helped me get my application together and he was able to request me from the applicant
pool based on the veterans relocation act.
Walked out one day in uniform... came back two months later as a civilian government employee doing exactly the same thing I did in the military,
except for a whole lot more money.
I quit shaving and cutting my hair for several years.... hair got down my waist with a beard.... when people would come looking for me... they would
tell them... he is in the back,,, just look for Moses. lol Then one day I realized how thin I was getting on top and had it all shaved off the very
next day... keep it very very short ever since.
I stayed with the Dept of Defense until I was selected by the FBI for my last 7 years. I did a interview with the Secret Service communications team
at the same time I applied for the FBI position, but wasn't selected for the SS... good thing in retrospect.... those guys spend way too much time
away from home traveling... I am not a huge fan of constant traveling.
Although I do suffer from, as do many of my service friends...that urge to pack up and relocate every 3-4 years.
