Topic: US Marine transitioning to civilian life.
Posted: Sunday, April 05, 2009 5:38:58 PM
I am a U.S. Marine, do to retire medically after 4 yrs of honorable service. My name is Alex, I am 23 yrs old, and while in the corps I served as a Military Police officer. I have one tour in 05-06 in Al Taqaddum as EOD security. I lost my MSGT, SSGT, and my best friend. It took about 6 months before my friends and family finally convinced that I had been changed. After losing rank, and my wife of three yrs. It was time for me to swollow my pride and ask for help. In July 2007 I was dianosed with chronic PTSD. After 2 yrs of treatment, the corps and the navy finally desided they didnt need me as a Marine any longer.
Because of this decession I can no longer be the person I wanted to be in life, a police officer. So I desided to dig into my past and find the person I used to be. I loved that person and loved the things I did. My father is a fine wood craftsmen, as well as a cabnet maker. My experience in the wood craft field is limited, but I have always enjoyed this field of work as a youth. The Marines taught and showed me another love in life, that I never knew I had... teaching. I would love the chance to do what these shop teachers have. I just need some Guideness in the right direction. In how to become certified for the job. All I know is the corps anymore and forgotten much if not all of my resource granted to me. I know I have the GI bill. Can some one point me in the right direction. I live in San Diego, off of rancho mission rd.

Thank you for your time...
