Congratulations on your promotion! Forgive this Canadian's ignorance, but what does SFC/E7 stand for? ~ and why must this promotion preclude you from continuing to be part of our poetic family? Are you being sent off to those harsh desert sands?
Thank you for sharing your poetic self with us and God bless you wherever you may go.
Love, Peace, & Harmony! Linda
Many non-military people may not realize the significance of reaching the seventh rung on a ladder that goes no higher than nine (and E9 is tantamount to walking on water). It's an accomplishment few reach and one in which you can take pride.
