Balogreene We're working on a Technical Manual, have a Chief Warrant Officer, and a Staff Sergeant this week helping us get ready for testing. Today the buzz was, the major was coming to meet us. Someone said "she", and I did a double take. I weirdly think Major=male. Bad, bad, me. She came, and was really a nice person.
She seems very young to this 62-yr-old woman, I was told, graduate from college at 21 or 22, 6 to 8 years to become a major, you should be a major by 30. She's also about 5' and 90 pounds. But, we entertained her, let her play with our system without judgement of her skill (we've all been there ), and laughed and had fun, while she figured out this new thing she is in charge of.
I love working with soldiers, but, this was a new experience. The respect shown is kind of new, I've met high officers before without having to stand in their presence, but, the soldiers,and ex-soldiers were, so I did.
Chief and Sergeant are different, we are all equals, and they are teaching me so much. I love them, even offered to adopt the Sergeant, but, he said I'd have to take his whole family : )
