    Numbers 1, 4, and 5 explain me pretty well. :agreed:

    Joining the Military was and is the best thing I could have ever done.

    Now here I am with 4 months shy of 19 years. :thumbsup:

    It took me 14 years but, I do have a general studies associate degree.

    BS degree plus a number of peace officer certificates. Can't say any of it made me smarter. Some....maybe most.... of my smarts I think I gained despite going to school.

    I don't think degrees makes one intelligent necessarily. The main commonality of "organized education" I think is it teaches a common language, communication skill set, and reference system so you can easier and more precisely communicate ideas and technicals with your peers.

    Unfortunately lots of stuff gets lost in translation sometimes.

    Bachelor's in mechanical engineering, Tech school associates in industrial maintance. Truck driving school certificate. A few certificates for short courses in stuff I forgot and/or don't use anymore.

    High school, US Navy and some courses here and there that I needed as I went along my (sometimes not so) merry way through life as a mechanic, p.t. farmer and mech design engineer. Mostly I went to the school that taught me to recognize an opportunity that was presented to me and don't live with regret for the ones I might have missed. The best learned value? "Hard work is it's own reward".

    I don't like to talk about it too much so I'll just say; trade schools, University, Military and a bunch of other stuff along the way.


    That's all just the jumping off point though.

    It's what you do with it all that matters.....

    Dieseldad97 I now know why.

    I done get thhrew hi school. Thats it.

    With the career I've had as a printer, I've done alright. Any more schoolin and I would have to move away from my home town in order to find a job. I love living in my small (3500 pop) prairie town. I don't think I'd change things if I had the chance.
