When did you re-enlist KD? I thought you were happier than pigs in mud during the summer heat to be out?
One thing lead to another, and what I'm doing now couldn't be FARTHER from what I was doing.
Before, regular Active Duty on the enlisted side. With that came all those early morning PT sessions, 30 days in the field a few times a year plus the regular field time, moving every 3 years etc etc
Now, Active Duty on the Natl Guard side, as an officer. Dream job really. Facilitate the success of the traditional guardsman, get to live at home, same pay and benefits as regular AD.... Still get to wear the uniform daily...
I really had trouble swallowing the corp america pill, a bunch of fake ass people wearing smiles and expensive suits...I fit in decently but had to restrain from cussing idiots out on a daily basis. Here, we obviously have no restrictions on that. If someone is a dumbass, you tell them they are and they correct the problem. No retarted HR complaints
Plus, I just feel like there is genuine purpose in what I do which is satisfying. Before, I felt as if all my efforts just went to fill the pockets of the senior execs and boost our stock price.
