Thank you for your service, sir. And for being a Tennessee Vol. We've talked back and forth on the board a few times. Glad to know a little more about you.... I finished UT Knoxville up to my Jr. English exams, Engineering... all night school. Had to work through... my Lord had a different plan - graduated from Thomas Road Baptist Bible Institute (now Liberty University). Been preaching for 45 years, but I can still read a slide rule... go figure.
BTW, 2nd. Lt. 30th Armored Division. Got the tee shirt, wore it out. Tennessee Military Academy alum.
Most people don't use their actual degree for their entire career. I did electronics design work for a decade before moving to consulting and sales of electronics design software. Now I am sales management for the same type of software. Ironically I can explain what I do now easier than what I used to do!
Yes, BS Political Science degree in early 2000's. Came back to work for UT a few years later and got a (basically) free BS in Accounting and an MBA from UT-Martin. Itching to start a free PhD but that is a hefty time commitment while working full-time.
