Special Announcement

Recommended Posts

I have been offered a job with the Kwajalein Police Department. Kwajalein is a coral atoll located roughly half way between Hawaii and Australia. The Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Test Site is a military base located on that island. The Police Department is a government contract job under Alutiiq Global Solutions.

Kwajalein Police Department General Information

They want me there on the island on April 19th. This means I will turn in my two weeks notice tonight (Done) and that will give me three days of house clearing and packing before getting on a plane.

The advantage of this job is I'll have NO LIVING EXPENSES! I'll be issued a dorm room, food card for the chow hall, no state or federal taxes (FICA, Medicare and a local tax only[13% total]) 80% tuition reimbursment (I still have GI Bill money too) free dial up in the dorm (high speed at work), etc. With bonuses, and money saved I'll have roughly $140K saved after 3 years! With that I can buy about 10 acres of wooded land, and build my log home W/O a mortgage!

I WILL still be making kilts. As the island has NO fabric store, I will be ordering everything and having it shipped or having my customers buy it and ship it to my APO address.

I'll get two trips a year as well. One to HI (I can go somewhere else and pay the difference in airfare) for a week and one home (Louisville) for a week.

Grats, from what I've heard about the place, it's not bad at all. I almost shed a tear thinking that you would have to stop making kilts, because you are on my list of ones I want.
