Ugh, sucky. I've learned in the last few years, if you can get into a Union of some sort, you usually make really good money.

aw that must really suck. i never got into the military because it didn't seem like itd interest me either. id say do what you can to try and get some more schooling done even if its online or a few credits at a time. on the upside it sounds like you've got a good income for now until your ready to leave the military. i know the feeling of not having any time to do anything but hang in there, anything is possible :)

Would you be interested in being a nurse at all? I graduated making (I think) a base rate of $24/hr 7.5 years ago. New nurses now I believe start around $30 at my hospital, and if you work the weekend program you make a lot more. The fact that you can only work three 12 hour shifts a week or even just Saturday and Sunday on the weekend program is great when you have kids.

I was actually enrolled in college for nursing & dropped out when I got pregnant 6 years ago. I really think I would enjoy it but the science I saw (when my SIL was going to school) scared me! lol
