Have you ever been "relieved" from a job or position that you knew was temporary from the beginning but liked so much that it deeply saddened you to have to leave?
Yes, as a programmer in a mid size company. They hated to see me go but the post just wasn't in their budget, I was a fill-in for two years.
Tonight was my last night as squadron first sergeant. Next week the whole executive staff changes. It was so much fun! Alas, such is life.
Where to next shirt? Back to your career field?
It's Civil Air Patrol, so not quite the same as true military, but my next stop will be flight staff. I'm hoping it will be flight commander. We'll see. I'm not sure yet considering that I still have a little over 2 months before I can make C/2nd Lt.
