Not to be intentionally rude, but really. . .”Im afraid i cant provide details about what I do as im in the DOD”
Many of us here served a career in the military. We know the DOD. We know who does what, where and how well. We also know GS scales.
We spent an entire career serving this great nation while at the same time fighting career bureaucrats (GS) as they went about their business of finding reasons they can't do something.
The worst GS examples of this approach are found in DC, to be sure.
At any rate, bottom line, saying you are in the DOD and can't talk about what you do is not really accurate. Every DOD organization and job, with very rare and limited exceptions, even those in the “black” part of the budget, has an unclassified description—how about yours?

Your not being rude at all. First I'd like to thank you for your service to your country, it is appreciated. A lot of folks I work with are ex military and I am proud to work with them. When I say I cannot discuss what I do I don't mean I am some black ops cloak and dagger type. If thats the way I portrayed it I apologize, nothing could be further from the truth. james bond 007 I ain't or do I pretend to be.lol. What I meant was we are trained and warned not to make public (like on the internet) a lot of personal info details or about what we do for the fed gov. It may sound dramatic but I'm just stating what we are told and how we are instructed/trained. We receive continuous training on this subject so it gets kind of drummed in. As for being an unclassified description, of course it is but that doesn't mean I can or should provide a lot of detail about it. Yes I am a “run of the mill” worker bee GS rate but as you probably know there are many different gov rates. I spent many years as a WG. I think GS just happens to be what most people have heard of.
Anyway I hope I cleared up any misconception about what I was trying to say....... I'm proud and to work for the American taxpayer, it is my honor and privilege. I would just like people to know we're not all sluggo parasites sucking the US dry.

Perhaps he is one of the new army of IRS agents or diversity coordinator’s being hired.
