Hello AFpj,

I tried to PM you, but I think there's something a tech issue.

I am new to overseas contracting and I'm trying to figure this thing out.

I see that you are doing a DOS contract in Erbil. I am very interested in coming aboard and have a few questions:

1. Is the position PSS Medic in Erbil still available?

2. If so, what is work-life like?

3. Being a DOS contract, am I able to bring my own gear, such as a scope, level 3 armor, helmet, night vision, IFAK, etc?

4. Is this an armed position?

5. I see that the rotation is 105/35 or 84/42. Is this all paid time if spent OCONUS or are you only paid for the 105 or 84?

6. Any other info would be great (job lead, advice, etc).

Thank you for your time,

Berry

How about you put the brakes on and go and do your intro like you are supposed to do. No questions just do it.
