I am not yet an officer, no matter what any friends of mine, however dear and close, [cough]Matt![/cough] may have reported.

I do have the paperwork.
I am supposed to commission.
I have a slot at nearby Fort Belvoir, and don't see any near-term deployment. BUT- I am waiting on orders from my current command releasing me, before I can swear my oath as an officer.

I'll let y'all know, promise. And in other News of John, I'm doing just fine. :-)

Roger the wait on orders... There WILL be a party, right??? :-)

Because it has to happen soon, but I don't yet have a date, nothing grandiose. But we can certainly celebrate afterwards. :-)

Okay, so you're currently imminent, rather than eminent. Indeed, let us know when the transformation occurs.

Hey, even if you haven't sworn in yet, congratulations on getting to the cusp!

I was not updated in a timely fashion upon this issue.

Time to post the renewed status, Lt. Shirley?

Matt, you are so subtle... ;)

(Don't let Matt fool you. He got the fwd from me *within the hour* of my receiving orders...)
