January is nearly over!!! Great! It's funny, because it seems like I need to do more paperwork to retire from the Air Force than I had to do to join. I went to the office to apply for retirement the other day...and was told, I must first fill out an application of eligibility. LOL I guess once they determine if I'm eligible, then I can apply for retirement.
My supervisor asked me if I would like to go to Iraq for the next 6-9 months....I thought for a split second and said. No. I love it when they give me a choice. LOL.
Still waiting on word from DOS on the application I submitted back in Nov. From reading other posts, I guess it really is a slow process. Luckily for me, time is on my side...it would be great if everything actually worked out, I retire in November and get selected to start Specialist class in March. Never hurts to dream a bit.
- Leaving the Air Force...
- Hi, This is my journey to become a Foreign Service General Services Officer with the Department of State. I'll be saying good bye to a 20 year Military career with the United States Air Force in hopes of starting my second career. I've been living overseas for 18 of the past 20 years, so going with the Department of State is second nature for me. I look forward to having all of you take this journey with me, I'm sure it will be one helluva ride!
