Does your LOA allow you to keep your seniority number? I know under USERRA you'll keep moving up if it a military deployment. Either way if you can keep using retirement numbers to move up and whatever economic recovery we actually see on the other end might be the best you can hope for in the current environment. My .02. Good luck.
I'm not sure if you meant it this way or not aeroengineer - but there are people flying with many times those qualifications flying ISR for the different contractors. There are people who chose to do this type of work - not necessarily as just a fall back plan.

Good luck with your search HercTank.
Thanks for your continued service.
