I have been offered a job that would allow me to make alot of money in a very short period of time. I would leave for Iraq in Jan. and I have until Nov. 30, 2007 to make the choice one way or the other. It would mean I would have to leave my present posistion and with that I have no quarrels.
The job I have been offered is extremely dangerous and my chances as I see them right now are slim to none that I would return home. Yet I am faced with the fact I have never refused anything thrown my way. I do not kid myself I am older, my re-action time is slower not to mention that I am still not 100% from my surgery I had in April.
Yet I am an adrenalin junkie I love the rush like an addict loves a high, or a drunk loves a drink. I do not fear dying never have still I have reservations about this offer. What are your feelings on something like this?

This is just my opinion but i would say pass it up. i am sorry any of our people are over there. Money is not everything

I would love to find something like that. I am truly at a time in my life when the thought of dying is at times very comforting. Getting an opportunity to get away and face something like this may offer me the chance for the pain that is my life to finally be over. I may begin looking for something like that myself. As for you I say it depends on how you feel about your friends and family. If you have noone to feel your loss and you are comfortable with the opportunity then it might be worth the thought. if there are those who treasure and love you and want you to return then I would say definately not.

Its is a big dicision just be safe about it i saw your profile and you have a child probably grown but still Iraq is dangerous and if you know that you will not be comming back or you have doupts listen to your heart and i agree with the first post money isnt everything but family is
i know that some people love rushes but is that rush worth your life or leaving your child or grown kid with out a parent unless u have spoken about it to your family and they agree with it

Reading what you posted I don't think you would have asked if you did not have doubts or reservations. If that is the case then your "gut" is telling you to pass and I learned a long time ago that thinks always ended better when I followed my gut feeling.

What's the good in making money if you're not going to be able to use it because you are no longer alive.

take the job!

I can't speak inteligently about the risks. I would say that if I felt that I couldn't provide an "A" game, then I shouldn't play. Forget all the money and death.
If the odds are not in favor of returning, then your only going to provide a temporary game. If your not able to "add" to the team, your just dead weight. Don't go in knowing someone else is gonna have to carry part of your load.
I'm really not trying to be degrading, just pointing out the negetives.

Thanks Ash my thoughts exactly. To the other person I say this in the words of Ynot .... "Take your fucking meds."

You can't take the money with you if you don't make it out alive. Sure you'll add to your child's inheiritance but you could do the same thing here with some investing. We've talked about this at some length already.......you are the one that has to make the decision....but.........there are more ways to find excitement if that is all that you're missing in life! Just my .02!

The money may be good...But the ghosts aren't worth it...take it from someone who knows....
