Three words....

"Made..."

"The..."

"List."

Anybody who is an NCO in the Army knows what I mean, but for those who don't, it means that I have been selected for promotion to Sergeant First Class in the upcoming year. A SFC is an E7, and is the first of the Senior NCO ranks.

A lot of my buddies made it also. I don't know where they're going to put all the SFCs here in Battalion. Anybody who intends to stay in the Army should take heed. This job is no cakewalk by any means, I won't specifically tell anybody to do this job, any more than I would tell somebody to throw themselves into a woodchipper... but the effect it has on your career was obvious when the list came out. A very high percentage of those eligible for promotion were selected. Some who should've been promoted, or expected to be, probably weren't... and there were several who were longshots because of short time in service who were... but overall the numbers were high compared to the rest of the Army.

Congratulations to the rest of the selectees throughout the Army, and especially Dan F. and Max V. The only close non-Drill Sergeant friends that I am sure made the list. One is a recruiter and one is an EOD tech who kicks ass at everything he does.

Hi There,
The easiest money you'll ever make...

I just came across this brand new program that's

taking the internet by storm!



If you want to make an avalanche of instant cash

without lifting a finger, then you've GOT to see this:

This amazing turnkey system allows you to profit

like crazy even if you don't have a list, website or

product of your own...and it really works!

I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the word poster, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you've done with your blog, even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I've only just recently started a Posters website - feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.
