A slight delay

The SGM (sergeant major) had to attend a memorial service so Daniel's board appearance is put off till tomorrow.

Saturday, September 27, 2008


It's Saturday and I slept late after a long week of a variety of interesting occurrences. I missed Daniel's call - dang. It's now 6:30pm in Ba'qubah and his boards exam is tomorrow. He said he's more than a little nervous because the Sgt. Major has been pretty rough on the candidates, it's been reported, but they are still having a high pass rate. I'll post as soon as I have results

Daniel has been told he has to take the Boards for a promotion to sergeant. Great. Now I have to learn how to spell that well too. I can do Baghdad, I can do Ba'qubah, so I can do sergeant.

I don't know that he's excited about it - maybe when he realizes he can go to the non-comm officer's club?
