It's been a rough few weeks for me, and therefore I haven't had much time to moderate around here. A few weeks ago, I decided to ask to be retrained through the SIE program (self-elimination for aircrew). School/family/career goals were all a factor in this. Everyone up until the chief enlisted guy in our squadron had absolutely no problem with this, but he did. He's pretty much disliked me since I got to the squadron a year ago (personality conflict, i guess). He's basically got me convinced that there's an even chance of the squadron commander recommending me for seperation or to be retrained. I'm still awaiting the decision. The thought of seperation scares the ever living hell out of me. It's been a very stressful few weeks for me, and I apologize to you all for my lackluster moderation of the board. I've just had a lot on my mind, and my priorities have been elsewhere. I apologize for letting you all down lately.
