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.
