Written into the fine print of my active duty orders was the statement that upon completion of BMT and tech school, and with commander’s approval, I’d be promoted to E-4. Now, Senior Airman (SrA) is portrayed in tech as being the first rank you really have to wait a while to obtain. There’s even a special program,
Needless to say, it’s an exciting day for me. I pick up my uniforms with my newly sewn stripes tomorrow. I should be an SrA for a while though, since my next jump is into the NCO tier and I need to advance in my skill level and time in service in order to do that.
On a fun side note? I am now the same pay grade as my husband. 🙂 I give him a hard time about having to work a lot harder than I did to get there, but that’s partially because his unit’s fault.
I’m a 31 year old Navy sister, Army wife - Air Force wife to a prior service Marine/Soldier, and an Air Force Reservist. I am a happy wife and mother. My husband switched branches and joined me in the Air Force Reserve. We look forward to a future of dual military service!
