Finally a free man!!

Today I went back in from being on leave for the past 10 days and picked up my dd 214. I'm officially out of the navy after 7 loooonnnggg years. It feels so good even though I don't have a job lined up. Gonna be staying with the in laws until I find one. I've been looking a little bit but haven't really applied to any yet. Seeing that I was a nuke I already know I will have zero problems getting a good job. I've been offered a couple outside of Michigan but I refuse to move away from michigan again. Also, I'm gonna start using my gi bill to get my masters soon. Just wanted to share my joy with everyone. And I can say FTN without worrying about some dick head officer overhearing

I remember the day I got my DD 214. I was so happy. I had a job lined up though and started working it when I went on terminal leave. Drawing double paychecks for 2 months was awesome.

What do you have your Bachelors degree in?

Also, I wouldn't get your hopes up too high about finding a good job solely because you were a Nuke. There is so many Vets out now after the huge ramp up of Military personnel that just being a Vet, or a Nuke doesnt mean as much as it used to. Shit, most employers that have never been in the Military have no idea what a Nuke even is in the Navy. You'll find out that your degree means much more than your Military service. Although a degree accompanying Military service definitely will get your application looked at faster than a recent college graduate with no experience.

Enjoy being out though, its definitely a good feeling, but intimidating at the same time. Im up near the UP if you're ever up this way.

I read the title thinking you had just quit charging for your services and I was going to come over for a spell.

I read the title thinking he had just gotten out of prison. I see I was right lol


I'm actually happy to be in. And seeing how everybody in my career field is wanting to get out I am not worried about being kicked out at all.

I have my bachelor's in nuclear engineering. And being a nuke does mean I'll be able to find a job. I've already been offered a 120k job and I can live anywhere. Just don't know if I wanna be away every 3 weeks. And I've been offered another job paying 95 in ohio. So ill find something. Not too worried about it. Not many people can do what I do and there is high demand. Hence the reason I turned down a 100k bonus for 2 extra years. Fuck the navy. Haha

I got offered a job for 116k in Vegas but couldn't take it because I had 4 years left on my contract and the FAA had a hiring freeze due to the sequester. I wish I coulda taken it

Parson's corp or Vogtle plant down here near Augusta, Ga. Two nuke plants that are almost always hiring. Might be worth looking into. I've learned already that if you want to make the good money, you have to be willing to move around for it. I'm from Mississippi but I'm out here in Georgia now cause there ain't shit for work in Mississippi (at least nothing that pays like what this does out here).

I was a Russian linguist in the Army. The Army didn't offer any reenlist bonus, and my only choices for stations were theater (Texas or Hawaii). I told them if they couldn't get me in a tactical unit to deploy, I was out. You can figure out how that went. I literally went to work at the same building about 40ft from my old desk but as a civilian making twice as much.

That's a good one. I thought you were going to say some bull shit Military degree people get. Like a Bachelors in Vehicle Maintenance or something. The Military offers some pretty useless degree that people think will take them places when they get out. If yo have a BS in Nuclear Engineering, you'll be good. Just might have to move out of Michigan if you want to make good money.


You're nuts for coming back to Michigan with that kind of Money on the table. Money isn't everything, but there isn't going to be that kind of money offered in Michigan for Nuclear Engineering. Especially in central Michigan. I'd take the 95k job in Ohio, you're still only a few hours from home. Doesn't hurt to look in Michigan though, that for sure. Especially if it doesn't work out here you could quickly jump on one of those.

Well I don't wanna work in a nuke plant anymore. Any hydroelectric plant, water treatment facility, or beer brewery is what I'm really looking for. I was a chemist for the reactor and steam plants and I actually loved my job in the navy. I have a buddy that works in Dearborn that is trying to get me a hook up but you never know if it'll work out. I'd be starting off at 80k there with all sorts of perks

That's not bad either. I'm hoping to get a job in Dearborn as well when I'm done with school.
