You’re Hired


As an infantry Marine veteran myself, I can’t recommend the Post 9/11 GI Bill enough. Many people enlist to gain practical skills that they might “transfer” over to the civilian workforce in the future.

Not me.

As an artist, I just wanted to do something difficult and shitty. The Marine Corps infantry was the only option for me.

The great news? It actually doesn’t matter what you do as a Marine, because you’re granted a second life once you EAS. The GI Bill enables you to pick and choose your career path to literally anything you want. You’re not defined by your enlisted path in life.

Go be a pilot. An engineer. A journalist.

An artist.

Infantry Marine turned Combat Artist turned animator turned bestselling author turned dad.

  1. That’s a damn fine EAS beard for one month’s growth.

  2. Hello from PDX,

    0351/0341 here. I’ve been a mechanical engineer and now I’m a software engineer. The GI Bill got me here.

    I still deliver grief to people, at a distance.

  3. Man, I wish more people used the GI BIll. I just don’t get the alternative.
