Uncle Sam, once again, is not happy with our current one weekend a month (Army reserve status)
arrangement so he's called me back into the active Army for a period of 1 year... or whenever he feels like sending me home.
I started my Army career on active duty back in '89, went into the Army reserves in '93 and am now inching ever so slowly to my 20 year mark. I'll be stateside (Fort Benning, Georgia
) for the duration of my tour where again I'll be serving as an Infantry Drill Sergeant training new soldiers.
Thanks you everyone who has already sent me supportive messages and most of all thanks to my boss, Bill Warren
, who has committed to paying the gap in my salary while I'm away. This is neither the beginning, nor the end of Bill's generosity to his crew, which is one of the biggest reasons I enjoy working at, and now getting back to, DirectEmployers
Last but not least THANK YOU
for reading, commenting and being a part of my blog. Yes, I'll do my best to continue blogging about the industry, providing stats, doing the show
and maybe even sharing some funny basic training stories once in awhile. So keep checking back or plug me into
your RSS reader
if you haven't already.
