Back to the Sandbox

After wrestling with thoughts of rejoining the Army, due to sitting down with a recruiter while he interviewed my Niece Helen, and tried to get me back in, since apparently, I'm not too OLD at 46 with 8 years of prior service.

The thought of having to go through Boot camp again, after being a civilian for 21 years, is just too much for this slightly overweight, worn out,cigarette smoking, old fart.

While I WANT to do my part, getting back in the Army is not the best way to go about it.

What to do? Well I'll tell Y'all.

Fired up this puter and hi-tailed it on over to KBR's web site, and applied for about 10 Heavy Truck Driver positions, in Iraq,Afganistan and Kuwait, last Sunday.

Monday morning, I get a call from a KBR requiter, who wanted to flesh out my application.

Fine I say, what do y'all need to know?

SSN#

Am I willing to go to Iraq? Why yes I am!

When will be available? How about August.

Good Class A license with Haz Mat and tanker endorsements? Of course!

Clean Driving Record? Clean enough. 1 speeding ticket in the last 5 years.

At this point, I'm thinking, she must have not read my CV.

Oh, I see that you listed that you have worked for us before, do you remember your employee # ? Why yes it's !@#@$%^.

OK,Great, Let me contact HR in country, to see if you are on the rehire list.

Why did you leave? My appendix burst, the Army operated on me in Balad, and Medivaced to Germany and then y'all sent me home to recuperate.
