I flew out of Germany in August 2008 (4 years active duty, 3 years and 2 months spent in Mannheim). I spent some time on terminal leave, looked for work, didn't make much progress, and then swore into the PA Guard w/o a break in service in September. I sat on unemployment for a brief time, which was Apparently PA thinks I made $50k last year, so I was collecting a good chunk of change for a bit. I am now on long term orders working at 3/166th Regiment on the Ft. Indiantown Gap (NCO Academy, school code 1012). I started working as admin for Battle Staff and 1SG course, but now I am working as a WLC instructor. I began back in early October and my orders take me out until May. I will be splitting time between BSNCOC/1SG admin and WLC instructor, but mostly as WLC instructor I believe. I will be attending both classes to get my "8" identifier in April, at which point I will be a full, legit SGL. I reclass to 25B in May on Tobyhanna, which will finish up in August. After that, the sky is the limit. I want to spend at least a few more years as an NCO, so I am going to work to get a solid AGR job. I plan on retiring in the guard, and I am still debating whether I want to go officer/warrant or not. Questions, comments, concerns? This concludes my brief.
