Hey guys, Im new to the EMS life and waiting to hear a reply about my application to a local medic program that begins in august. Im pretty excited for it. But I have a couple of questions. I was in the Navy as military police for 5 years and then got out. Being in the Navy I never got the feeling that I did much for my country or really anyone else, and I applied many times to be deployed and to go on special assignments that not a lot of people wanted to go but I was denied for each one.. So when I got out I felt very unfulfilled. I have always wanted to be in public service and I'm pretty dedicated to helping people anyway that I can. After looking at medic instagrams and such I saw a lot of pictures of medics in war zones working for a particular companies but not for the military. Usually they do not have the company advertised and give very little information on how they got a gig like this. I have tried to direct message some of these accounts and never got replies back so I guess my question is have any of you worked for a private company contracted by the military or another organization to work overseas in any controversial areas? How was it? How long are the contracts usually? What are some companies I can maybe look at when I am done with medic? I appreciate any response guys. Thanks!
