And the Winner is...........................

Our appt. with the Command Career Counselor was today at 10 a.m. The first thing we found out was that MS could not put in for a general duty billet. That means that he had to select an AT1 billet.

Then, the only thing avail overseas was Atsugi or Yokosuka, Japan. So, there it is, we put in for Yokosuka. There was a Helo command at Atsugi, but since MS has only worked on F14's and F18s he wanted a airplane squadron.

Good news, we were able to put in AIP (Incentive Pay) bid for the Yokosuka orders. So, we did the max bid and will wait to see if we receive the orders. CCC said that we should know around Oct 4-5. If we don't get them, we will wait until Oct 11th and put in another choice.

More than likely that we will get these orders. There were 2 positions open and they're offering AIP. CCC was pretty sure we would separate from current command June 2008. So by the end of June we should be in Japan!

WOW!! It's going to take me a little while to get used to the idea!

I've started cleaning out the closets and talking about what furniture we will take.....

Michael, my 17 y.o. is taking Japenese 101 as a senior this year! He graduates June 14th. He is going to Japan with us!
