Thanks for your interest. She has been in the Army Reserves since graduation from high school in 2005 and recently returned from a year deployment to Iraq. When she first got back she said that she was going to enter the Individual Ready Reserve and stop drilling in August when her term of service expires. She would still have 2 more years on her contract and could be called up, but she would not have to continue to drill. She was made platoon Sgt. recently and was responsible for the training for a 4 day drill last weekend. She called me on Saturday night and said that she has decided to continue drilling because she really enjoys it. Sometime over the weekend the commander of her unit pulled her in and talked to her. She thought perhaps he wasn't happy with the training that she was doing but quite the opposite. He was extremely pleased with the training and asked her if she would consider putting in her packet (kind of like applying for a job) for Warrant Officer. WO's are commissioned officers that are experts in their field. She is an intelligence analyst. She is getting married this year, so she talked with her fiance and he is completely supportive. It will incur an additional 4 years service obligation but if this is what she wants, we're good with it. I feel that surely she will be face another deployment but we all survived the first one! So that was my news.
