22 years in. I was going to retire at 20 years, but had the opportunity to be a security forces assistance team leader in Afghanistan, so I jumped on that and delayed the retirement. I loved doing it...I really like working with foreign militaries, and there is nothing better than leading Soldiers while deployed. If it had been a job on a FOB, I would have passed...I much prefer staying as far away from FOBs as possible. And where I was at in Afghanistan...well...you can't get much further away from a FOB than where my team and I were.
But I got back from Afghanistan a few months ago, and now I'm just trying to get all my medical issues that have developed over the last 22 years sorted out before I move on.
And congrats on Aviation!
