OT: I\'m Out of the Military! YEAH!
Okay, I found out today ( a few hrs ago ) that I can get out of the military! I've been under what we call "stop loss"; it is where they can hold me in for an undetermined amount of time till they feel like they can let me out. (thats in a nut shell, there is more to it [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] ) Anyway, they have been holding me in since January 02 and I lost my Firefighter job, and house back home, wife also lost her job as well because of this crap. But, I'm not going over seas this Aug like I was planning on, that is the only bad news. I would have liked to go over one more time to get some extra money before I get out.
Well, I'm moving back to Columbus Ohio (my old stomping grounds) and will be looking for a good Firefighter job there. I've got a few good leads but please keep my wife and I in your prayers as it will be tough the 1st month or so. I'm just glad that I'm out and can now start my "normal" life.
Since this has come up, I now can't go to the Melt. Have to save my money! I also had to cancel my race weekend at the track for my race bike (sporkbike racing ***edit sport bike racing***), that sucks too because I put a lot into my race bike that now I've got to wait. Maybe I can go next yr at the Melt ? I'll be closer this time. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
My last day will be sometime at the end of July or early Aug.
