My Grandfather worked in construction all his life. It was terribly hard, backbreaking work, but back in that day, the money he got paid was damn good and we never went hungry. We never got rich either, and the hard labor took it's toll on Grandpa, may God rest his soul. I joined the military, and it was tough, but i got through my initial hitch and went back out into the civilian workforce. I wish i had stayed in now. I would have been retired at 38 or 40 with a good pension and medical and dental benefits and still be able to hold a job and make even more money. If you do decide to go the military route, my advice would be to stick with it. Just don't expect it to be a cakewalk.
