Used the money I got from the Army.....GI Bill, Army College Fund, to get a two year degree in Manufacturing (heavy in machining).

I love the work, but on occasion there are layoffs in this field because machining is much cheaper over seas. They can pay them with rice to run the CNC machines that I run here for a living.

Ditto on machining. Everyone I know that has a machine shop, at least in the U.S., cannot find enough quality help. People that actually know how to cut metal are in BIG demand.

All the Best,
