Come On, Army!!!

A few posts back I mentioned that Kyle had a potential opportunity to go work with an old boss of his at Fort Bliss (COL is taking a brigade command). Knowing this information, Kyle sent a courtesy email to his branch manager letting her know that COL would be contacting her. Well Kyle got an email today from her and basically told him that she is not sending him back to a brigade or lower level job. 

She wants to send him to a corp level position, a command or INSCOM (they have units at Fort Gordon, Germany, Fort Meade, and Schofield Barracks). None of these are horrible opportunities it's just a little disheartening that she won't even entertain the idea of this job offer. Now that we know this he is really going to start pushing to get a command, he wants that more than anything. 

She is supposed to be coming here in a week or so to do interviews and then start placing people. We should know sometime close to the end of September where we will be calling home for the next 3 years. 

Bottom line is, I want Kyle to enjoy his job and be happy. We will see what happens. Stay tuned my friends!
