Military environmentalists in the Navy, Army, Air Force, Marines and National Guard protect the planet and other military personnel by performing such tasks as inspecting and taking care of human waste disposal and sanitation of drinking water. Environmentalists work in all branches of the Military and easily transition back to civilian life in similar home front careers.
US Navy Hero Training
Nine weeks of basic training is required before specialized training begins for the various Military jobs. After initial “boot camp” training, future Military environmentalists begin training courses in things such as waste disposal, detection of hazardous materials, disaster planning and techniques for defusing bombs. More courses for Military environmentalists include sanitizing and managing the use of drinking water, performing health inspections of food and safety inspections of military facilities.

Navy Retirees: Civilian Hero Careers
Experience in the military will open up many career opportunities to Military environmentalist retirees looking for civilian career positions. Experience may help the candidate have an upper hand on other applicants without experience. Careers the retiring environmentalist may consider as a civilian include advising to government and private organizations, managing water treatment plants, inspecting landfills, monitoring sewage treatment and planning for natural disasters on home soil. With the wide range of civilian careers, salaries will depend upon areas of expertise and years of experience. Average reported salaries for environmentalists in different disciplines in 2006 was between $37,000 and $58,000.
