I’ve written some things in the past that portray the negative aspects of being a contractor and moving from implementation to implementation without working for a company helping you advance down a career path. Well, one advantage to being a contractor is that it affords you the opportunity to see and visit many sites.
I consult, so I get to move around a little. Most of my clients happen to be local, but I visit different spots throughout the Washington, DC area. Recently, I’ve been in the Arlington area and have gotten to visit a few memorials that are fairly new and I hadn’t gotten to visit before.
