    Sigh, me too. I really don't have a lot of marketable skills....

    I'd probably get a law degree. I found I can think on my feet better than most lawyers I've encountered in court.

    Seeing how much they make, I'd try my hand in being an accountant, I'm pretty good with numbers, I am have pretty good attention to detail, and I don't mind math all that much. That, or I would try my hand again at my first love, computers. So many different things I can do with computers and its a field that is always growing.

    Real estate sounds good in theory, but only if I owned 10+ houses that I didn't have to make payments on.

    Gah, who knows. So many options.

    I would have stayed in the US Navy and re-enlisted on the east coast and toured Europe and then retired after 30 years. I would have been out by 1990. I could have still joined the PD for 15 years and been vested for another retirement. THAT, or I would have been a plumber as my father in law wanted to get me into the union. I refused and joined the PD but had I taken the plumber job I probably would have owned my own company or been retired now BUT I have a friend from high school that owns his own plumbing company and he can't retire and always involved and doesn't enjoy life. This is a shame and not what I would have wanted. Sorry to babble on!!

    My back up plan has always been Probation, but thats kinda LE related so it won't count for this.

    I'd probably teach, High School or higher (Can't stand other peoples little kids) Probably Civics or something. In fact, I still plan on doing that once I retire, and work on my Masters / PHD in the next 18 years before I retire :P

    I had a few good Criminal Justice Professors in College. One of them was an EX cop, and he really had a different and refreashing perspective on things compared to the purley academic guys. So I wann take my experience to the classroom and do what he did. But thats a good 18 years down the road.

    I would love to own a bar, the kinda that all your locals bring in stuff to stick on the walls and every hour on the hour do a toast and sing along. If that bar didnt work out then one on the beach with hot woman and thirsty tourist would work as well.

    And in case you don't speak Latin.......If you want peace, prepare for war.

    I've been places, seen and done things that would make most cry. I've fought along side and against better men then most I come across day to day, i've put my life on the line more then once for things you take for granted and for those you have lost respect for. I don't tell you this for your pity or respect but for you to remember me.

    Teaching. I would teach college for those that would be considering getting the LE field. There are a shocking number that didn't know that crime scenes take a while to process..

    I'd strip to put myself through law school, then have my political future ruined when my sordid past comes back to haunt me in the 2030 presidential campaign...

    Or, maybe I'd finally put my film degree to use.

    I'd open a liquor store in the ghetto... Seriously, those guys are getting rich. I see lines nearly out the door of those places even at odd times (like 7am on a Tuesday). Wonder if they'd all still shop there if they knew an ex cop owned the place? might have to open it in another city.

    And, if I wanted to completely sell my soul, I could sell those "souvenir" mini-flowers in tiny glass jars (err.. pipes) and travel size cans of gold paint (never know when that might come in handy, and why wouldn't any self-respecting liquour store want to carry such a fine line of products?).

    On the other hand, I like my job... maybe I'll leave the "recreation" business to someone else.
