Good News And Bad News!


Recommended Posts

I got a call earlier and I was given some good news, and some bad news. Lets start with the good news. I am getting promoted on January 1st to Staff Sergeant / E-6. Its a big jump in responsibility and pay that I have worked very hard for many years to attain. I knew that I was getting promoted, but I had no idea it was this soon. :cheers: The bad news is that I won't be around this summer to enjoy my first California summer. I will be attached to a Marine Expeditionary Unit for at least six months doing a WestPac deployment. I will be deployed again which has me kind of bummed. I have deployed many times the past few years and I feel as if I deserve a break in the cycle. I guess I can't complain because I made the decision to stay in the military. I now have less than two weeks to find a place to stash my SSS, trailer, and my two motorcycles while I am away. Oh well, I guess I have to look at the bright side. I will get to see some amazing places while I am away. I'm going to shut up now. :rant:
