Paul_G I'm a US Army Vet masquerading around as an international vagrant while pretending to be a Program Manager in Government and Defense logistics in the Middle East and Africa. I get to deal with the DoD, local governments and Ministries of Defense for logistics moves in support of FMS and other goofy stuff.

Kind of fun till you come back to the US and have to go through customs and you have a 1 yr old passport that already has three inserts and is full of dodgey stamps and you are always that random person getting checked and questioned.

I'm looking to get home at the end of the year permanently. Wife says it is 'no bueno' anymore so she already moved back. Till I get back she will drive my Rubi I picked up a few weeks back.....sigh...

To the toilets and sewers on base.
When I was active duty at EAFB (medic on the ambulance service) I also worked part-time at NASA in the occupation health clinic as an RN. We did the the physicals for the employees so they could use the gym facilities, flight physicals for NASA pilots, and general medical care. If I remember right the shuttle landed 3 times while I was there (1998-2001) but I always had to work on the ambulance rather than getting to go to NASA and actually watch from the flight line. EAFB is a great place if you like Air Force history and aviation.

NavyDoc:
Believe it or not, we have also been mistaken for astronauts since we wear royal blue flight suits.

No, we are a private ambulance service that has Air Methods as our aviation vendor. The med crew works a 24 hour schedule (3 shifts). We are nurse/medic crew configuration. We basically work the same as a fire schedule. When not flying, it's all free time. I got my BSN and MBA while getting paid to sit at work. I used to work per diem at a local hospital here in town, but gave that up to have more free time when I was in school. I don't miss it at all.

If you don't mind me asking, what hospital/program? Feel free to pm also. Are you still in the navy? I was an Air Force medic also.
