    I'm a 32 year old Marine Veteran. Served from 2004 to 2012, EASing as a Sergeant. Deployed to Iraq twice, as well as a MEU.

    I'm married and have twin 2 year old boys, a 6 and 11 year old boys. I live in Nampa, Idaho. trying to lose weight and get back in shape. Having a difficult time adjusting to civilian life and keeping a job. I currently work at a inbound call center assisting customers with quicken for Mac.

    I enjoy helping people, but at the same time I have a VERY hard time being around civilians that never served. Most people don't seem intelligent and lack common sense or are just plain idiotic.

    Hello to you sir! 32 is a good age. It is a age where you are still hungry and see life differently. Sound for me that you need some goals and you feel a bit stuck.
    I know how you feel when it comes to civil life. I have the same problem. You meet few people who is smart and thats the way it is. But for even smart people you need network and people you can talk to. Just find people that is much older than you.

    If you want to go back to military or thinking about it. You need to fokus on what you know you are good at. And when you get older you also sith with advantage compare to people who is 24 years old.

    Feel free to ask any question sir! And i will try to help you as best i can :)

    Have a nice day when you read this.
