Wow you have a lot of experience and since your ex-military that should really place you at the top of the list. They prefer ex-military over civilians, you can try using linkedin to contact recruiters. From experience do not waste time with Fluor recruiters they all say apply on the website. It really is about luck, because most of the time you cannot tell what area someone is recruiting in by reading their profile. They do not make it clear.
Make sure you have a resume that lists all of your qualifications and the key words drawn from the job descriptions. Make certain it goes beyond a simple resume more then just work history, have a two or three paragraphs stating your different qualifications etc. It is worth spending a few days researching how to write resumes because it is the primary tool recruiters use to pull up applicants. Check kbr and fluor often because I usually see a lot of truck driving positions.
