Good evening Marines, Corpsmen, Chaplain, and veterans!

Remote work is something I have had a keen interest in for some time now.

I clearly recall a conversation I had with one if my operations supervisors way back in 2002. It had occurred to me that everything I was doing as a Fleet Managet pulled easily be done from home. I had all of the tools that I used daily at the office at home, but the angle I was pitching was how much overhead they could save if they allowed us to leave “the dungeon”.

“The Dungeon” was a keyed entry room where about 60 tightly packed cubicle were shoved into every available spare inch. In this florescent nightmare were housed all of the company’s CSR’s, Fleet Managers, Dispatchers, and Supervisors, who rotated in 3 shifts. This is where I was when 9-11 happened.

A cacophany of shouts, ringing phone lines, and the ever present1 mumble of us prisoners pleading with our drivers to tell us of their outdoor adventures. Almost daily there were outburts of anger where violence was a near thing, as logistics personnel were overcome with stress and frustration to the point where coming to blows over the last fresh poppy bagel seemed like poetic justice.

You would think getting rid of the expense to house all of us would he something the boss would jump at, right? Nope! In his words, “If you work from home, how will I know your working?” Full stop.

Times have changed, a lot. Interested in remote work from home or wherever? Check out the link below and explore! Dont forget to share this with your friends and veterans, in your groups, and around the web!

The 919 Jobs Update : VA Aquisitions

Semper Fi veteran, active, and reservist Marines! Ahoy Fleet Marine Force Corpsmen and FMF Chaplain!

Oooh-rah! To all of our motivated Auxiliaries, Associates, Affiliates, non-member veterans, non-veterans, and any and all who support them, I say, “well met”!

Welcome to the 1st 919 Jobs Update!

The 919 Jobs Update is my opportunity in the role of a Marine Corps League, Marine For Life Network Liaison, to share potential employment opportunities with Marines who are transitioning from Active Service back to civilian life.

Once a Marine, always a Marine is not a permission granted by any authority, it was an idea. We Marines are keeping it a fact, by virtue of our Service. Our Honor, Loyalty, and Commitment to that Service.

Help us keep “it real”, with substantial benefits within the framework of social, professional, and education environments. If anyone knows of a Marine coming to the area from active duty, get on your smart phone, or whatever is near, and make sure they know where we are, or how to find us. That there are benefits and help for them to be successful as a civilian.

There are challenges in making contact with these warriors; somewhere between their release and our notification of their arrival, the line of communication gets broken. Most of our efforts online are a part of our struggle to close this comms gap to Serve our brothers and sisters. We welcome any information that helps us to achieve our goal of connecting face to face with discharged personnel within the 1st 2 weeks of their arrival in the area.

Thanks and in the meantime, here are some positions with the VA!
