When I graduated high school in 2005 I went right into the Marines. I got to serve with 2nd LAR driving and operating the turret on the 14 ton LAV-25. It was a cool job. Went to Iraq twice and once to Afghanistan. I am married, started college after getting out, and started having kids in that time too. Now I have a Creative Writing degree and have worked construction the last five years. I am not averse to hard work, I just hate getting paid very little for the wear and tear I'm putting my body through. Trucking seems like my way into a career where I can have more independence and reward for my work. I appreciate this online resource. Has been my number one spot for researching my future career.
