It's Official!!!
As of today (last night at midnight) I am officially a civilian after 30 years of service in the US Navy. Woohoooo.

I joined the US Navy after dropping out of high school at 17yo (idiot), got my high school diploma, AA, BA, and MS degrees while in the Navy. I am 4 classes into my MBA w/ conc in Human Resources Management. I made 9 deployments, served 17 years at sea, was promoted 10 times, including earning a commission. Now back to the real world. Thankfully I have earned 75% of my base pay for life...check of the month club woohoo. Show daddy the money.

Now I am working as the project manager of a meat processing company. This year alone I am managing modernization and expansion projects totaling over $4 Million USD. This is my temporary office, my new one is being included in the expansion I am overseeing.

Nothing special, but I have the corner office all to myself, and my car is parked facing my window, 10 feet walk to work muahahahahahaa

woohoooooo Flex

Yup! it's in the OP. I have purchased my dream home, a 3 story, 4200 sq foot 6 bedroom 4 bath 1.5 kitchen dream home with a theatre room, gymnasium and hot tub! I have a great new job as project manager for an innovative and growing company, and I am being groomed to take over as director in one year when their director retires. Drooling

And you did so without a sky hero. Congrats. And screw anyone who says there are no atheists in foxholes. I didn't serve myself, wouldn't have mentally been able to handle combat. But to say there aren't atheists who have been there is dead wrong.

When ever one speaks of being groomed I think of the National Geographic pics of apes sitting around picking fleas off each other!
