Q&A with an Executive MBA StudentWish I had some great resources for you, but unfortunately, I never came across any, which I found frustrating as well.

Por que Drone Strikes?There's a lot of hate on here.. let it go. I've spilled blood in the mountains and the desert and I've lost many friends. I've spent the last decade living this war... 9 deployments and almost five years spent in the region. So I've seen it all first hand. Many Muslims have died serving with us... 2 years 8 months

I strong caution people thinking of joining the military after starting a solid career elsewhere anyway.[/quote] I think your insights on enlisted life would be... 2 years 8 months
Break in the Track for Military Service[quote=holla_back] Anyway, I don't understand the "little BS you need to deal with as a junior e-man" part -- the bullshit you're sometimes forced to eat is absolutely fucking astounding, especially when you're a reasonably intelligent, overachieving enlisted guy. .[/quote] Exactly my point... 2 years 8 months

You'll have more control in your role, more flexibility, and less bullshit to deal with.[/quote] I'm really curious what makes you think this.

Interesting industries/spaces to experience growthCyber security definitely. I also believe something big will happen with online TV/media. I think places like Hulu and Boxee are just the tip of the iceberg. Somebody is going to break the paradigm and cable is going to go the way of the compact disc... or so I hope.
