Understood. That's why I mentioned "or other U.S. Government positions."

Self Deploying, Volunteering without an NGO Sponser and/o Freelancing is NOT the way to go.
Agreed, but that is vastly different from enlisting in military.

I know some of you know this information. I still like to post for those who haven't delved outside of Domestic Assignments.

Some Contract Work is very similar and the work the same;

You're on a Contract for a specific period of time, (sometimes guaranteed by a type of tour completion bonus etc).
You report to and are supervised by a person of Military Rank through a Military Chain of Command.
You command a Rank and are required to following and abide by the Command's Standing Orders and are in the Op Excrement working alongside U.S. Servicemen/Women.

Most of the time, as a Non-Government Employee Contractor you don't have the luxury of;

1) Disability and Long Term Health Care, (i.e. VA Benefits);
2) Disability Retirement;
3) Subsidies, (such as Housing, Medical Ins, Food etc);
4) Transportation to/from the foreign work site;
5) You have almost no U.S. Diplomatic Protection in the event Foreign Authorities bring an accusation of violating local laws, (or detain you in a Conflict Zone).

The upside is that most foreign contact work is temporary, highly paid and very little tax liability incurred at the end of the year.

I am too old to join the Military, the Military has an age cut off. I beleive 35 YOA with no prior service and 42 with prior service. I also have no interest in a 4 year long commitement. I don't keep cars that long. That in no way means that under hte right terms and conditions that I should not be able to go and participate in one role or another.

What job are you entitled to? It’s a WAR zone. They don’t need one month war tourists.

If you are looking for NGO Volunteer opportunities, Team Rubicon International was requested by the Ukraine Ministry of Health to provide teams on the ground in various locations including Lviv. They accept Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics, AEMT. Upon passing their 5 day selection course you become eligible for their 14 day deployments.
