    I would be willing to go to the front lines but the army will not take me because of age, the CIA is out as is the NSas &FBI as I do not have a BS or BS degree. I am a Vietnam vet so I would have no problem working a a peace keeper. I have 30 plus years construction management experiance but can't land a job with the corp of engineers or seabees.
