Movin up in the ranks.

The results came out for E-5 today and I found out I made it! I am officially a Staff Sergeant as of either 1 Sep or 1 Oct. It also means an extra 200 bucks a pay check which is the most important thing. I'm pretty much doing NCO work now so my job won't change much. I might have to supervise a troop now though which can be frustrating at times. Another good thing is that I will get at least 3 months of back pay tax free since I will be deployed to Iraq. And at least another month and a half taxable on top of that. This is because there is a class that I have to take before I can actually sew on the stripe. So that '06 R1 in even closer in my sights. My girl made it too so we can even start lookin into buying a house. Who knows.

Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.

Congrats DL. Promotions are always a good thing.

Hooters...looks like you got to travel around alot. Thats always a lot of fun. I was in for a little over 6yrs as well. If you remember what my old avatar was, that would tell you alot of what I did and how much I got to move around and see many countries.

I am going to say he is in the Air Force. Its the only one that has a E-5 as a Staff Sergeant.
