The Best Jobs in America

The Military.com staff was all abuzz about CNNMoney.com/Money magazine's recent list of "The Best Jobs in America." Web producers, engineers and managers crowded around the content manager's desk to see where their respective jobs fell on the list.

We were most surprised by how many jobs are great for retired personnel or veterans. Most, if not all, former servicemembers have the necessary education, leadership skills and experience to fill one of these top jobs.

The original list features 50 jobs; we took the top 35 occupations and their annual salaries. Take a look at the list and see where your job -- or prospective job -- places.
