    Greetings from Iraq

    I am an International Police Laision Officer in Tikrit, Iraq. I retired from a Midwest sheriff's office after 22 years of service. At the time of my retirement I was a Det/Sgt supervising seven detectives. While here in Iraq I work with the Iraqi Police Commanders and investigate suicide bombings, homicides, kidnappings and any other "important crimes." If any of you are considering an International Police Mission, feel free to contact me. Stay safe and God Bless.

    Interesting job. I piss my boss off he tells me he is going to have me replace one of the stop lights for a few weeks. What did you do to get sent to Iraq?
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    Why

    After I retired from law enforcement I became an Assistant Vice President of a bank. That was like watching paint dry. So I decided to do this. Basically I had pass a physical fitness test, psychological test and complete 2 weeks of training in Virginia which was conducted by former Special Forces Officers. And so here I am.

    He volunteered...

    He's apart of the IPG. It's a group of LEOs that take a contract job over seas basically as FTO's for fledgling Police Departments after war or major shift in Government. They get paid pretty damn good too. When I was working for a contractor in 2000 to 2002 I was making close to $100k a year for an assignment in hte Middle East. It's a lot more now!

    Just remember to meet the test for tax exemption you

    MUST REMAIN OUT OF THE US 330 DAYS IN A TAX PERIOD OR YOU WILL BE TAXED!

    If you are in a hot zone you may still make tax exemption with less then 330 days; but they always make changes that requirement it seems.

    When I took my vacation I went to Moscow, Ciaro, & Brisbane! Had a great time.

    While your out there if you can make sure you hit Abu Dabi & Dubai. Doha Qatar is also a fun place.

    My hat's off to you both, mocopiniraq & AgentParsons.

    Anyone (Military, Civilian or LEO) who volunteers to set foot in that shithole deserves every dime of pay they can get and a lot of respect from all of us.

    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    Is your company like Dynacorp?
    "We're surrounded. That simplifies the problem."
    Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller, USMC

    If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.

    DynCrooks! Oh buddy your screwed!

    If you have the profit or 401 (k) program with them pull out all your money while you can. I worked for them ONCE! And will never do it again. They treated us like shyt and once my contract was up and I returned home I got a nice little surprise. They withdrew all their matching funds from my 401 (k) and Profit Sharing Plan. Over $8 grand

    Still fighting with them in court to get my money kack and its been 5 years now!
