I WORK ABOUT 2,400 HOURS A YEAR, PAID VACATION AND HOLIDAYS, COMPANY TRUCK,GAS CARD, UNIFORMS, COMPANY SUPPLIED ALL TOOLS, COMPANY CELL PHONE,FREE MEDICAL BENEFITS, BOSS PAYS PENSION AND 401K,

Many websites reveal that the contractor experience in these zones is not the same as the military personnel experience. The commeraderie, chain of command, and belief systems are not in place in the contractor environment. One site described a great deal of lying and workeplace political intrigue, without redress.
Well ok...I can understand that, however many of the contractors are prior service?!?...I get we are not military anymore but can't we still look out for one another during the transition?!?...afterall, who is going to welcome me into the civilian side...cause the military is for certain done with us..any contacts?...Thanks for the reply, its been the only one I have recieved so far.
