That doesn't sound right to me. My buddy I mentioned earlier who worked on rigs out in the Gulf got his underwater training alongside guys in the Marines (as I recall he said either there were SEALs in the class or the instructors were SEALs). He also went through the underwater demolitions course with them at the same time. This was back in the early 1980's and he had some killer pictures and the certifications on his office walls, so it wasn't just a BS story.

Anyhow, my point is that he trained with the military and went directly to working on oil rigs, mainly in the Gulf but also in the North Sea and the sandbox (before the current wars).

I would definitely look around if I were you. Lots of welding jobs out there that pay good money.

Sometimes we get bored at work and amazing things happen.

Sorry to hijack but trying to help a little;
I'm a superintendent for a large industrial construction company. We build ethanol plants, concrete plants, corn seed plants, pet food plants, grain elevators (large scale), grain shipping facilities on the gulf/great lakes, on and on. I have been with this company for a year, the previous company I was with for about 14 (started as a superintendent and was as project manager the last 3). I like working in the field so I went back to being a superintendent.
There are tons of jobs out here if your willing to travel... That means in most cases work 3 weeks go home and travel back in one week (on the average). Google/Yahoo traveling construction welding jobs or use LinedIn. I know tons of companies always looking for welders/millwrights (arc welders 7018/6010).
