horrible truth

I was told Kristen the whole truth about stop loss... a blunt, non happy, non optimistic way.


to say the least it didn't make her very happy.

she's pissed enough about how little I'm getting out of the GI bill.


Kristen is like me, we need to know what is going to happen in advance. Not knowing kills us.

make that three of us...
If I understand you correctly, I'm in the same boat. I think about the future all the time, and if it doesn't go as planed averything goes out of wak!

Re: make that three of us...
yeah, it kills me not knowing exactly what is going to happen next semester.


(but I did talk to the First Shirt, and she said that there is an 80-90% pass rate on stop loss waivers, so that is good news)

Re: make that three of us...
yeah...

but the rumors kill me too!

They let go about 40 jobs from Stop Loss. Mine wasn't on the list.

Shop basically says we're going to get deployed. They mean practically everyone.

Ssgt from Mobility office puts a damper on the deployment rumors from my shop, but tells me not to expect that our job be let off stop loss anytime soon.

So, as long as I finish out this semester... get my associates degree, get accepted to a college, and DON'T get deployed... I'll be okay and most likely get out on a waiver.

Re: make that three of us...
Well it looks like the odds are with you on this one. Although, I really don't have any clue if the chances of you getting deployed or not are high. I guess one thing to keep in mind is, like your last post about you worrying said, you chose to go into the sevice instead of going to a school like Point in WI (by the way I though it was funny you mention Point cause my roommates sis went there and my Girlfriends best friend is there, its a small world feeling). I think what your doing is very commendable even though it might not be the best thing for you. Hang in their, Joe. I don't know if you will appreciate this statement, but here goes. God has a plan for you. He'll put you were he wants you to be. Take from that what you want, but its the only thing that keeps me sane these days.

I'm a rollercoaster....

One minute I'm scraping the bottom of the emotional barrel... then next, I'm reassuring myself....
