Not Looking Good for Another Year in the Army
This weekend, I found out my application for another year in the Army has not yet been approved at the state level. And after that, it would have to approved by National Guard Bureau at the Pentagon.
I can't say for sure, but if I were betting, I would bet against me getting the extension.
Yesterday, I turned in a lot of my field gear and went on what may have been my last flight in an Army helicopter.
The field gear that remains for me to turn in during March drill weekend has my name on it and the name has to be cleaned off. Of course, when I was issued this field gear, my unit said write your name on it. So I did. Now I have to erase it or I will have to pay for it.
That's the Army!!
