One of our good friends, also my husbands boss, didn't make Tech Sergeant this time, and this was his last chance to do so (as he has been Staff Sgt too long). He's been in over 10 years and now at the end of his next year mark, they will discharge him. He has an 8 year old son, a wife, and is due for another son in August. They have been nothing but good people to us, and everyone they know. I hope things work out for them. :(
Gotta love the military cut-backs.
I'm sorry for them. I hope they can transition into civilian life smoothly and easily.
