I've been doing a little research on what companies hire US civilians to work over in Iraq. I see that KBR isn't exactly the most desirable to many once they get over there and see how others have it. Any suggestions to specific companies to look into for employment? Looking to get my hands on some of that money.

You sound like a prime candidate for Blackwater ;)

Blackwater isn't any better if not worse... try SAIC.

Check into ITT and DynaCorp

There are a bunch of companies contracting work over there. Do a google search and you'll find them

What do you do now in the military? If you have any aviation background with sheetmetal or mechanics, L3/Vertex is always hiring.

My friend at work is a sheetmetal guy, and went to Iraq...he's getting $150k/yr. My other buddy at work just left for Iraq last month...he's a helo mechanic and they're paying $190k/yr!:rock:

If I wasn't married w/kids I'd go there....

I've been trying to get employment with the Army who is looking for civilian Intell Analysts out in the sandbox. I was a 96B and trying to apply my skills to the job they have advertised. It pays about 85K a year and its a temp position for 1 year.
85K tax free+ single guy+ no mortgage = BANK
