Salaried Employee, question about working after hours.

Im in IT, paid a salary for 40 Hours a week. On a on-call rotation. Anyways my questions is this. I am occasionally asked to do a server room clean up. These are usually done around 7PM and last until any where from 3AM to 7AM in the morning. This is also asked of us if after we have worked a 8 hour day. Sorry beating around the bush, but I want to give details. I have chronic insomnia and take something every night to help me sleep. Have done so for many years. Can I get a doctors note that says I cant work these night shifts cause it messes my schedule up just to bad? If I do get a doctors note for this, can my employer fire me? If fired do I have recourse or unemployment? Thanks in advance. FYI..In Texas.

I want to be a roughneck!!

Roughneck/oil rig filter: Im trying to pursue a career change and working on an oil rig & doing the roughneck type work is something I'm interested in. Ive been a IT Support/Network administrator/Network engineer for the past 12 years and its time for a change and time to get out of the office environment. How do i get into this line of work? I see a lot of websites promising to "Help you" get into the industry but when i look closer they look like a bunch of crap. Anyways if anyone knows please let me know. BTW...Looking for something in Tx...Ideally working xxxx number of days on xxxx number of days off because i have a family. Really any foot in the door would be ideal i just don't know how to get there,

Working in Afghanistan

WorkingInMiddleEastFilter: So ive been offered a job in Afghanistan at one of the FOB's (Forward Operating Base) there but i know little to nothing about working over there. The money is great however and my family could use the $ to help pay off some bills. The contract is 4month on 2 weeks off. They stress that it is very dangerous work, and just to clarify i will be doing IT work. I have a wife and two small children, 6 and 2 so i have to weigh in what it would be like to leave them for this time also. Can anyone offer any insight to what it may be like? Is it really that dangerous? Anyone with first hand experience?
