    Any reason you switched away from civil engineering? I am actually an intern with the city government civil engineers. I enjoy it but not so sure about the future for civil engineering. Id hate to go through that much college and end up not finding a decent job.

    Thats part of the reason for the switch, I started working mowing/landscaping for a guy during the summer, actually liked what I did for work, found out all my credits transfered, and it was cheaper going to a tech school over a university.

    One of my big regrets of my time in the service was not taking enough photos. Keep up the good work and thanks for letting others see the great opportunity that is Heavy Equipment Operating in the branches. Anyone thats looking into a career path in construction thats just out of high school should consider it.

    Found this on my friends facebook thought it was down right funny as there is a truth about it as well. I have to mention from earlier this year from the threat of the government shut down.

    Resize your pics to less than 2MB and don't upload too many at one time. If I don't resize my pics and/or try to upload more than 3 at one shot that I get the same security token message.

    thanks I tried it with just one picture and it worked. Don't remember the photobucket password where I uploaded most of these, which auto resized them.
