    Yay! Finally!! My husband is in the Army in Allied Trades... looong promotion time for those job types usually. He has 9 years in... FINALLY got promoted to E5! I had to tell somebody, he wants to tell his family so I can't call them. I'm a Sgt's wife now! Now I need to get put on that "other" housing list so we can move. I moved back home for awhile to save some money, but wanted to move back since being away from each other sucks. Or since I don't want to part with the chickens, perhaps the new BAH allowance will be enough to rent a chicken and dog friendly house in the country. [​IMG]

    As the wife of a retired E7, I can totally relate. He was an E7 for a loooooooooooooooooong time. With his specialty, he was never going to make E8, so he retired . . .

    Good luck getting back into housing. I know how it feels to be separated like that.

    Yeah he might see E6... but E7?? LOL Can we say Warrant Officer? Either that or an MOS change if they give him one.
