From the Dead

Well, not actually, but an update is certainly in order. My unit had attempted to place me in WLC (sergeant's school) twice, but each time, I was bumped because not enough slots were available.

Wednesday afternoon, I got a call from my unit in Augusta. My Unit Administrator said she understood that this was the last minute, but wanted to know if I wanted to go to WLC. I would have to fly out Friday morning.

WLC gives promotion points for enlisted ranks, and is a prerequisite before making E6. I'm also still looking for a job in the DC area, and the work was welcome. I received the packing list and my orders mid-afternoon on Thursday, and flew out early Friday.

I'll have a review of WLC up at Seek Cover soon.
