    go over there. I value my life and my loved ones too much. apparantly, he (and the others who go over there for the $) feel
    about family and money than I do. Some people are easy to "lure", I guess.
    One of the few local jobs fitting my skills that I deliberately did not send a resume was one with a subcontractor supporting the Army Rangers based at Fort Lewis. They wanted a web site developer to travel with their deployments.
