Have you thought of school? With the Post 9/11 GI Bill you can get the monies you need pretty fast and steady as long as you're enrolled, further your education and build your resume and still have plenty of time to surf. I hated high school and Im loving college. If you need any info or guidance just ask, My brothers and I, our wives and a couple friends are all post 9/11 vetrans who have returned to school.
Next semester begins in January and registration just started.
