CryptoGirl is seriously considering leaving Active duty and going Reserves at the end of her current enlistment this September. 11 years has been enough. She wants a more "normal" life: 9-to-5 job, family, home, settling down, etc.
She is eligible to go before the Chief's Selection Board! Woo Hoo!
She sez, "Going to submit my package and if by some act of God I do get selected I'll obliserve. If not, I'll keep trying in the Reserves. It just kinda made me fall out of my chair this morning seeing this. I know it's just board eligible but it still makes me proud of myself."
BZ Pooh Bear. Be very proud.
