    You don't have to take my word for it. Google "Top ten job markets" and you'll see report after report showing all kinds of openings in the health care industry, now and projected, everything from nurses aids to lab technicians. Aging baby boomers and more people having access to health care are the primary reasons.

    Check out just a couple of pages verifying this.

    Don't forget moving target/aka loyalist of the slaughter machine.
    The flag folding skills come in handy...... if you come back in one piece. It's easy to tech them cool little napkin tricks when they set the tables for those in the medical profession.

    We have an aging, obese, or both population - of course there is going to be higher demand for health care.

    All ObamaCare does is divert massive quantities of health care spending into an overlord federal bureaucracy at the expense of direct patient care.
