    Former US Army Ranger. What else is there? Seriously.

    Well, though nothing is as cool as being a Ranger, some other relatively highpoints in my vocational past are: I was a youth pastor, in college I was a teacher's assistant, I was a security supervisor at a very large company, and now I'm a chaplain candidate in the US Army.
