    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. WTF old vets just don't count for much these days

    why in the world do you allow someone to put a resume in one of these comment blocks? it's a tremendous misuse of space and certainly won't positively impress a potential employer

    Suggestion for all of you wanting a Government job. CPOL.ARMY.MIL it is working for the Army and it's agencies. You may need to travel abroad or to another state to occupy a position; but there are allot of positons. You could be working as a Park Ranger under the Army Corps of Engineers... Key is don't be so picky about what you start out doing and use your skills and knowledge to advance... Once in, you can apply for other positions as they become available... These are GS positon and my require security clearences or other special considerations.
