    Congrats on completing all the hard work. I have to echo the sentiments of huachuca, I found some of the best officers to be prior enlisted as well. Hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    P.S. Your truck looks beastly.

    On you accomplishment. You should be proud!!!

    I second the above post regarding commissioned officers with enlisted experience. I had 10 years enlisted and 11 commissioned. The enlisted time really helped me out, and the enlisted troops in my units showed a lot more respect for an officer with enlisted time.

    Enjoy your company level assignments, they are the best!!!!
