My Captains brother in law is there right now...making a BUTTLOAD of money, doing NOTHING.

He is actually in Kuait, staying in a compound that was built by OSAMA BIN LADEN's daddys construction company.

The upsides:

Great money, little work.



The downsides:

One of the big suicide bombings that made the news a while back, happened there...he sent back pics of the dormitory building next to his...leveled.

He was under the impression (I dont know why)...that his money would be "tax free", as long as he stayed a certain amount of time....WRONG....as he recently found out.

I think I recall him saying something about never being allowed to leave the base.

1) Wackenhut is not the only FF contractor (not saying they're are bad, just wanting to let you know it's not the only company in the sandbox)

2) If you REALLY want to know what it's like & what to expect - try talking with some folks who are there.

This is an ongoing thread that has a few FF in country now talking about conditions & such. Should be quite informative.

Best of luck to you.
