Big News!!!!

Sorry, Mom. I have to bump your birthday post.

We have big news! Will was selected to become a warrant officer! Yay!

Sometime in the next 4-6 months he'll head off to Alabama for a month of school, then he'll come back here to Fort Gordon for another five months of more specialized training.

Here's what this selection means for us:

1. Will can do a job he enjoys--all the technical fun without the babysitting soldiers part.

2. Better pay.

3. Officer housing (or officer housing allowance if we live off post again the next time we move).

4. I can start working on my snooty officer's wife attitude.

5. Did I mention the better pay?

Of course this also means more deployments. No more clothing allowance every year. More involvement in Army politics for promotions. Moving, yet again, in about a year. But did I mention that he'll get paid a lot more?
