I was actually already enrolled in the course and was planning on finishing it here before I found out about it. The Major told Mike that I needed to come see him this morning as soon as I had a chance, so there I was trying to figure out what I had screwed up on or who I pissed off this time! That is when he asked if I was interested in being the next SMSgt, I’m sure I had the deer in the headlights look for a moment until I understood what he was saying, so I told him uhm dugh of course I am! So then he told me that Col Luke had asked all the other SMSgt about it and they were moving a slot to my section so they could promote me. Then he told me that I have to finish this course before I can sew it on. So now I’m on a mission to finish it. It isn’t too bad, it’s all on line and there are 5 sections that after each section I have to go over to the Learning center and take a test. SO I guess if I already knew everything that was in it I could be done in 5 days, you can only take one test per day. So my plan is one to two tests a week until I finish it.
Oh and it might be as soon as April when I sew it on, the time in grade requirement is only 20 months not 24. So if that’s the case I will have an almost entire month of SMSgt pay at the end of my orders! This also means only one more stripe to go! Anyways I need to finish up some things here in the office before I can call it a day.
Love you and will talk to you in a couple of hours…MUAH!!!
