    94E20. Radio/COMSEC Repairer. :wiggle:

    I have been pushing my resume out, but blah. People do not want much to do with me since I am so far out. I am trying to lock in a contracting job in the Poconos, but I am not banking much on it.

    Looks like I might do AGR Pennsylvania National Guard. Not many Cons, many positives, and I will get promoted to E7 pretty quickly.

    I was lucky enough to get a bunch of awards and turn everything in at the right time. I got picked up at 722 and worked my ass off for it.

    Every Soldier except for one in my section has more TIS than me, and now I supervise them :bowrofl: It has been quite the challenge to say the least.

    I appreciate the kind words. :bigthumb:

    Active duty has not been that bad, it really has not been that bad at all. My unit has been eh...but if I am going to play the Army game at all, I would rather do it closer to home.

    Making E-5 opened a lot of doors for me and going AGR in the PA guard sounds super compared to staying AD. Same benefits, closer to home and get to see family, PCS only when promoted.
