    If you want to make a ton of $$$$$$ and travel across the US with no home life, at all. This is the gig for you.

    I know a few, it pays well, the real gig is travel from x to a naval base back to x then rotate to a training cycle that is 100% tactical and stuff. Then back to escorting nukes across the US.

    Its fun if you like that over a family. In 365 days, plan to be not home 270 of them.

    They've taken this off the US Marshals' plate?

    Years ago I worked DoD security for awhile at an Army weapons depot that had nukes. Most stuff came & went by air but some by truck.

    One night when I was new on the job I stopped a Suburban with 6 of the scruffiest looking characters you've ever seen in it, but sporting US Gov plates which puzzled me. When I asked for IDs they all produced US Marshals IDs & badges. The veteran officer that was on the gate with me said they were escorts.

    Am I missing something? I see $55K-$71K...which I wouldn’t consider “a ton of $$$$$$”.

    Yea, overtime/holiday/bonuses/night differential/per diem pay is not figured into the base salary. I don't know what kind additional pay they get but I can tell you for a fact these types of jobs do not list the entire "pay package" as the base pay.

    Occasional exposure to potential dangers from explosives and radioactive and toxic materials.
    This position is for SRF ONLY. Applicants must attach a copy of their SRF certificate in Required Documents/Other Documents. Sounds like a good job for somebody with the credentials.
