    Kudos to you Zina for re-inventing yourself. This is a little unorthodox. But I am a participant in President Obama's W.I.A (Workforce Investment Act) the stimulus money form the President that our looney Governor finally let us use. I may be going to school to be a Customer Relations Specialist or for Project Management. One thing for certain. After my 10 yr military career in the Air Force police/personnel/Special Operations I am in desperate need of a good paying/benefits & job security job to help my wife and kids.
