Age is but a number and an annoying one at that.

Carpenter by trade. Got a shipyard job as a carpenter at a painting subcontractor and I've since started painting for them. I'm about to get a job in another shipyard's outside machine shop and hoping to get into the local navy shipyard's apprenticeship. Luckily I'm 19 so I can jump around a little, what with my adultly responsibilities and such 😜

I'd say the other major group is tradesman.
in the past alot of dodges have been used for military use, guess its just a carrying tradition

My grandfather gave me this truck before he died and he was retired Army and I'm in high school.

I was in the Air force to. The Hobby shops are nice when you need to use a lift. I now work for the GOV as a 911 dispatcher

I'm doing electrical work with a small electrical contractor right now, got the job in high school when I was 17 through co-op and still have it almost four years later. I'm trying to get a job with a railroad at the moment in my same field.
