I am happy to say that I am being promoted to SFC/E7 today for the U.S. Army.  I have enjoyed this site and it has helped me through many rough times. Thanks to all, and God Bless.

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!

Congratulations on your promotion....they
sometimes don't come often...and are often
driven by politics,  force levels, etc....

I am sure you are most deserving of it and
I am certain that you are pleased.  Good
luck on the future...

Congratulations, indeed.

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.

Ah Marcel!  Wonderful!  AND thank you very much for all you are giving our country.  A thanks to Ron, too, for providing some "basic information" on classification of rank.  

You'll always have a home here at Passions, Sir, Marcel, Sir!
