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.

Congrats and thank you for your service 8^). Now you can get back to normal and not have to call everyone sir and what not.

Hold on Brian! You can't leave yet! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] You still owe me a t-case, remember? [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] Let's get together at the Uwharries one time for a little wheeling before you go. Maybe we can get R/T to come up too, since neither of us is going to the 'melt.
BTW, what's a sporkbike? [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

You may already know this but civilian federal employment beats food stamps. If memory serves me, there were a few civilian career firefighters at Ellsworth AFB near where I used to be a professional firefighter in Rapid City, SD.

Re: OT: I\'m Out of the Military! YEAH!

Congrats Brian!!

I hadn't heard the message came out today, should be a bunch of happy folks [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] The Air Force will miss you, but I can't blame you at all. It sure isn't the AF that I joined 17 years ago.

Like was previously suggested, don't forget about civilian government jobs, you will have a hiring preference thanks to being a veteran.

Best of luck with everything, keep us posted and stay in touch!! We still have to go wheelin' together some time, don't forget [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: OT: I\'m Out of the Military! YEAH!

Thanks for serving our country!

My wife grew up in Pickerington (just outside of Columbus). We head out there a couple times a year. The next time we're out there maybe you can hook us up for some wheelin'. You know, the melt is only a couple of hours past Columbus...
