I’m going to be getting out of the military soon and I was wondering if anyone near Washington Illinois was looking for an employee? I’m willing to provide any information requested! Thanks for your time.

You might try monster.com and search for Peoria Illinois. It appears that you are around 10 miles from Peoria.

i certainly want to thank you for your service to this country, but a question i have is these times seem to be kinda hard to find jobs, did the military just not agree with you , it seems like it was a steady paycheck…i’m just interested in why some folks don’t stay in and make it a career…i hope you find success in finding a job, what is your background, what training are you offering

After 12 it’s indefinitely from what my helper told me. He was army. He did 8 but artillery spotters are in low demand in the private sector.

Thank you everyone for your kind words it is very appreciated.
Grizzman: I have been in the Air Force for 8 years as an aerospace ground equipment mechanic. I am universal hvac certified and work on diesel,turbine, and gas engines. Compressors, nitrogen carts, flood lights, generators and pretty much anything mechanical. I have achieved the highest technical expert level for my career. Supervise 20-50 personnel daily performing maintenance inspections and service on equipment. Spent a year as a deployment manager responsible for worldwide deployment of more than 2000 personnel and $12 billion in Air Force assets within a 72 hour window. Am currently a vehicle control coordinator ( fleet manager) for 341 vehicles and trainer of more than 800 personnel for airfield driving. I got injured on the job some years back and had to get spinal surgery last year where unfortunately the doctor cut my spinal cord and as a result I’m permanently in a wheel chair which is why I have to retire from the military. I’m after a supervisor job but my biggest passion is woodworking. I have a degree in cabinetry and furniture making and have an expected graduation date of spring 2015 for my associates degree in applied sciences. I’m 1 class from completing that degree. Thanks again for your time, here in Japan it’s time for me to head to work.

wow…understand i can understand your problem, i would imagine you will get the highest amount possible from the military for the rest of your life, at least i hope that is what happens, i have no idea how a dr does what he did to you, but i can tell you have gone forward doing the best you can and learning all you can, God bless you brother, i do hope you find the right job that you want, thank you for sharing all you did, im very impressed with what you have accomplished, it is stories like this that make people understand what people give in order to serve this country, again, thank you for sharing so much, and God bless in your quest for your new life and career…and thank you for the service you rendered for our country and our freedom.

First off I want to thank you for your service, in offering up to your country that blank check which was payable up to and including your life! (Thank god that it wasn’t cashed).
I am a Canadian, but I can still appreciate what you have offered for not only your country but mine as well!
Having said that, From the sounds of your experience, I don’t think you will have a problem finding a great career. If you do … come on up to Canada, we would be blessed with a man of your knowledge and stature!

I would certainly try to get work at Caterpillar. It’s located on the SE side of Peoria along the Illinois River. Email their HR Dept. and tell them your story and qualifications. Thanks and good luck to you.
