10 Babysitters / Teacher in Jeddah - ANCHOR INTERNATIONAL MANPOWER ...I joined the Navy when I was eighteen years old. There are a lot of people that said that I would have a hard time in the military because I was a woman. I proved them wrong and quickly went up in rank as I graduated from college while I was enlisted. From there, I went on to become an officer in one of the areas where women rarely went on to become a high ranking officer. I started to look for graduate jobs after I applied to retire from the Navy. When I put in my papers to retire, I was really happy to think about what my life was going to be like after I got out of the Navy. There were a lot of job fairs for veterans to attend to find a job after the military.
