Yes,you can. I work for the Navy and have seen this happen all the time. Though, the more experience you have under your belt the better chance you will have to get a job. Many individuals who are retiring choose this options.

1. For XE, Triple Canopy, etc --- No, you do not have the right experience. IE: your not gonna get one of the $300,000 a year security contractors jobs 2. But you can get a security guard job in places like Kuwait, UAE, etc making $60,000 a year tax free.
