The Rooster's New Job

For those of you who have been wanting to know: I heard from the Rooster today and they finally have his packet put together.  We now know what he will be for the next three years!  Are you ready for this?!  He will be a Horizontal Construction Engineer, or rather a 12N.  If any of you are wondering just what he will be doing go check out this website.  For those of you who don't want to go read it basically what he will be doing is playing with big machines in the dirt!  I am betting West is going to LOVE!!! his daddy's new job.  Now the only question is will the Rooster?!

As of this moment he does not have his orders yet so we still don't know when he will be leaving Texas to head on up to Ft Leonard Wood, MO for 8 weeks of training, and we won't know where we are going to be stationed until he is almost done with his training so that is also still up in the air so to speak.

But all-in-all I think today was a step in the right direction.  This whole process has been a long waiting game, but then what isn't in the military huh?  Waiting is certainly not my strong suit but I am managing and we will eventually get on to the next step in due time.

  1. Grandpa says he's pretty sure The Rooster will love this. Grandpa sure thinks it sounds like a whole lot of fun himself. I think he's kind of jealous. Grandma
