Home again, and ready to take on new challenges.  If you’re  like me, a couple of days off, and I was looking for some serious work. College was not for me. But what to do?  May I suggest futures trading. You may never have heard of this, but it is a huge part of American Business and plays a big role in keeping prices steady and affordable.

Glad to be home again?

Do you remember the day you put foot on American Soil; after being deployed for what seemed a lifetime? That feeling of relief and now; “I can let my guard down a bit.” That  wonderful feel of air conditioning and the smell and sounds of civilization are awesome.  And , of course ; not being inside the wire just to rest.

I was gone for a couple of years before I flew home to Texas. Not because I had no leave time, but because air travel was so expensive on E-4 pay. I flew into Love Field in Dallas, walked off the tarmac, and kissed the hot Texas ground with a big grin. Wow was it great to be home! I even had a tear in my eye. My Dad had been waiting all day for my plane to arrive.

This was before cell phones and computers. When I wanted to talk to my Mom and pop, I wrote a letter, and told them when I could get to a phone. I checked and double checked the duty roster as to time and date, so I would not miss the small window to talk. Any call from home was a treasure for my mom, because my brother and I both joined the Army on the same day.  My dad would take the day off and wait around the house until me or my brother called.

The world is more connected now, but some things never change. If you are transitioning from active duty to civilian life; your world is changing before your eyes. At the end of the Viet Nam war,  many troops were sent home and released with very little notice. Then all of a sudden, you were a civilian again.  One nice morning, I found my self standing at the front gate with my duffle and my go bag . In a 24 hour period, I had been notified of an early release and told to clear out my locker. The next day, I had a pay check in my hand and a DD214!

Are you transitioning?   Moving to a new career or job?

You may have questions about where do I go from here. Do you have a life back in the real world? Will I find my old friends and family when I get back? I found out that home had changed while I was gone. Very few people I knew were still living in my old home town.  Some friends were still off somewhere in the War. Most had gotten a job or went off to college and gotten married. The world moved on while I was gone.  Coming home to the “real world” was a shock.

I hope your transition back into the real world is better planned and a better experience than I experienced .    Today, there are lots and lots of resources available  for soldiers coming home. Do your home work and most of all; Do not despair.  There are tons of opportunities out there. I have found one of the best.

The founder of the S&P500 Trading Group , Dr. Cast , is a veteran himself. He has found and donated scholarship money thru his corporation to serve veterans that would not have previously considered futures trading .   This way we can offer reduced cost and fees to veterans and law enforcement. Opening new fields to men and women so deserving of our help.

This is an amazing opportunity that deserves to be investigated. If you need some direction about what to do now, take a look at our S&P500 Trading Group. We have lots of veterans in our group, meeting online; and making money from home.

This is a great group of veterans, civilians, men and women exchanging ideas and opinions and discussing the work we do. We are very transparent in what we do, and can even offer you a “look see” for a couple of days to observe our live trading sessions to watch as we make money. Lets Talk

Being part of our group ; Feels like you’re Home Again.
