Thanks everyone for the congratulations. Been absent these last few weeks because I've been in the field.

Now I'm clearing my installation to move on to my next assignment where I will...sadly...ride a desk for 3 years...kind of. I'll be an instructor to cadets who have aspirations of becoming an officer...I could do worse I suppose...better than slowly dying at a Brigade staff...

Majors! really!?...They're about the fattest, most miserable, most despicable bunch of officers out there. I understand being on a division or brigade staff is thankless...and I understand being a Battalion XO or S3 is thankless as well...but they don't have to be such a dick about it.

I'm perfectly happy with Captain. For a guy like me to move up from private to staff sergeant and then move on to the O side and make Captain...not a lot of guys do that. I'm the first officer ever in my family...and we've had every generation of men serve in the military since before the Revolution. So call me a Rupert or a fake officer all you want...I'm quite content either way and am counting the days to have my own Company...

I'm perfectly calm. Reaaaal calm...

I was just pointing out that Majors are like assholes...everyones got one!Very Happy 

I equate teaching cadets to herding cats...hearding cadets...how easily those words are interchangable. The good thing is, the institution where I'm going has over 50% prior service cadets with about half of them having been a drill sergeant. I think the hardest portion for me is going to be teaching them to embrace their role as an officer rather than trying to hold onto their role as former NCO's. I dealt with it, and it was a mother f*cker...but it's necessary. I look forward to the challenge.

doesn't sound like you're calm. you sound like a fucking head case kick off merchant. 

anyway, you're the boss of the wannabes. just remind yourself that you are something that they want to be so they can fit in or fuck off. winners never quit and all that

Interesting use of verbage.

I understand what you're saying.  And what is a head case kick off merchant? It's apparent my vernacular is lacking.

That's very kind of you to say so. I was 6 months away from becoming Major. Very Happy

Majors get the desk, Captains join their troops on the frontline. Wink
