Here's to

bloody wars and sickly seasons, as the British Navy says.

It appears the US Army is good and desperate these days, as I finally procured a copy of the most recent Senior Promotion Board results, and, lo and behold, it appears I am to be moving up in the world and will soon be SFC Abby.

It appears that I shall remain SSG Abby for a while yet, as there's some sort of identified-vacancy promotion system in place that means that, eventually, someone will send us a set of orders. When they get around to it.

Nonetheless, it's happy news. Alas, since we'll be falling under General Order 1A, I won't be able to spend a bunch of money on beer for my comrades.
