Weekend Off: National Guard Style
I went home this weekend and had two very different days. Today, I took two of my kids and drove to Philadelphia. They saw the Liberty Bell, ate at the Bourse food court, and played on computers in my office. I stayed at my desk and caught up on work I did not finish before I left to play Army.
National Guard soldiers with civilian jobs in management get stretched trying to fulfill their obligations to their work and their unit, not to mention family and the rest of their lives. So a day off from the Army meant an afternoon at work for this soldier.
At the end of the day, I got a lot of work done and my kids were full of greasy food. Everbody wins!
