Well most of you all know my occupation. For those who don't I'm in the Army. I've been standing on the promotion list for E-6 (SSG) since December of 2006. For my career field we are very small so promotions are competitive. Cutoff scores came out today and after missing by 2 to 3 points for a few months I finally made it. So as of May 1st I'll have more rank, responisibilities, headaches, but I love what I do so it's worth it. YAY ME :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

MOS is 68R we fall under the Veterinary Command, but I do food inspection. Basically almost like the military equivalent to a USDA or FDA inspector generally speaking.

lol, when my dad was running supply at the pre-ranger course at bragg, they would go on supply runs to dc or south carolina ocassionally, and their SC runs always ended up with my dad and his buddy relaxing on moorehead beach for most of the day.
