Joking apart, if you are leaving or have left the Army check out the Lockheed Martin job page.

How did you manage that?
Catastrophic failure of the mushroom spacer in the right drive sprocket on the way to Sarajevo airport at about 45mph. Very lucky to get out of it, since we weren't able to get inside the turret.
