    I work in 65k/year position with the government as an LPN. The part that sucks, Is I am active duty so do not make the 65k my civilian LPN counterpart makes; However, I am getting out soon and have had 2 tennative job offers.
    1. is returning to the exact job I am doing now at 65k (contractor)
    2. getting my research certification and returning as a protocals nurse for 60k (but as DOD with benefits)
