Gents, not trying to offend, but don't kid yourselves. Not sure what positions they are looking for there, but doubt it's 'inside wireman'. I think the big demand would be for linemen and you'll be an attractive target - unlike you would ever be in any US city.
And sure the pay might be 100X's what you would get as an E-3 1141/2 in the Marine Corps, but you would have a better funeral. (knock on wood.) And statisticaly a better chance of living. IMO Considering Marines have 799 dead to date, relitively few of which were from engineer battalions , most are 0311 grunts and Motor-T vs. 647+ civilian contractors. And the Marine Corps and Civ-Div contractors have almost equal numbers there... roughly.
And this from a guy who was in the middle of installing an over-head drop to an old hanger at Mogadishu Airport when rounds came over the fence..... I jumped down!! Somalia was a relitively safe place considering.
Not saying this for political content, but well over 600 contractors have been killed there..... Not including wounded. It's just not a very safe place.
Iraq has thier own electricians, let them do it.....
Get yourself a job with your local POCO or EC.
