These guys chose this work in spite of -- or perhaps because of -- the risks involved. If money were a large concern, he could have done quite nicely as an airline pilot, but chose to do what he enjoyed most. Life insurance is a lousy investement in any event; Consumer Reports recommends you only have term life insurance if you have kids to put through college, and get rid of even that as soon as they graduate.
