My friends son just finished 24 years with the U.S. Navy, 19 with Navel Special Warfare, the last few were in a underground bunker that analyzed intelligence. Guy is like 44, and has the body of a 70 y/o. So how he found time to get a BA in the Navy.

He is working in inventory control/supervision in a big wearhouse. The job is pretty much a no brainier, he says the tougest part is working with millinals, who don't have the same work ethic as his old Navy buddies.

One in a while if you try real hard you can change some kids life if you can communicate with them to stay in school, don't get into a gang, or involved in ileagle activity.
Felt like I was able to make a difference in many lives over 30 years. And now the pension makes a difference in mine.

So, What can be done with a bachelors or masters in political science? Opinions about this in general also
My wife is a probation/warrant officer, good pay and excellent benefits

I would suggest https://edureviewer.com/services/unemployedprofessors-com-review/ as a great source of informations. There are countless reviews which may be helpful.
I personally majored in Language and Literature which to me, was absolutely pointless. I wish I majored in Business or Law
