Wow, Craven -- I guess I missed all of this.
Congratulations -- you made the right decision. Sounds like providence is yours right now.
Well, does that mean I should cancel the reservations at the Valencia in La Jolla?
Already reserved? lol
If I go anywhere it better serve alcohol and have a smoking section.
Wow, man, what a lucky stiff. Congrats!! I got here late, but was just about to answer all your "time and rank" related questions ( I'm an E-6 in the Army) when I read you dodged the bullet.
I might do it, but only after 16 college credits. I'd have more options and better bonus/college money etc.
But I don't think I will.
Here are all of the ranks and insignia:
The E-1, E-2, etc refers to the pay grade, not the rank of the individual, but military people use both terms interchangeably as kind of a shorthand.
I only remembered the Air Force designation for an E6.
Craven, you been in the military?
NO. He stuck his toe in, but found the water too hot. He's now working in San Diego as a civilian.
