It would depend on your priorities or not. If you've never been in the military or have had a secret security clearance, you won't be a canditate for these positions.

On the plus side, the first $80k of your salary is not taxed if you're overseas. It gives a chance to squirrel away some coin.

I detect just a wee bit of flaimebait in that post. I'm sure some people are taking these jobs. No guts, no glory!

I have a friend that is single, no kids that is over there doing machine gun maintenance and he signed up for another year. It seems to work for him. I have another friend with a wife and kid that is thinking about it. I hope he changes his mind. Best of luck with whatever you decide.

Where upcountry?

I grew up near Kula, off the Haleakala Highway. Do you hate bicycle tourists by any chance?
