Re: Resume language
One would think. But many of the skills vets learn are as much about procedures as technology, and on systems that are unique to military operations.  So familiarity with using SMEPEDs, for instance, (Secure Mobile Environment Portable Electronic Devices) on classified networks just doesn't translate easily in the civiliam world.
