I'd love to do something like Blackwater did, but I do not have any military experience. I am 27 years old and am willing to go overseas for 6 months to a year at a time. I know those guys make a lot of money, and with this tough economy, the real estate scene is just not what it used to be. I have a 1 year old daughter, and I want to be able to provide the best life for her that I can, so she doesn't miss out on things that I missed out on due to growing up in a poor home. Can anyone point me in the right direction to sources or people who hire for private security jobs overseas, such as in Iraq or Afghanistan? I know these jobs are dangerous, but from the accounts I've heard, they make 80-180k a year, so it's a worthy risk for me. Hopefully someone can help, and that this doesn't come off as a dumb post haha.
