A Higher Ranking Official in My Midst

You made it through basic and tech school,
A cop you wanted to be.
We got sent to Minot,
And I was not happy.

We made it through the trials there,
As you were away for days.
We made some wonderful friends,
Then you retrained and we parted ways.

Off to North Carolina,
to a tiny town called Goldsboro.
You were now a Personnelist,
Working hard, being diligent and thorough.

Then you decided to become a teacher,
Moving us to Mississippi.
To the heat, the 'deep south', the gnats and hurricanes,
I wanted to escape in a jiffy.

Today marks a day of triumph,
As you sew on Technical Sergeant.
You tested one time and made it,
It sure paid off to be diligent.

Through your years as an Airman and Sergeant,
You were put to the test.
Things still aren't easy and you are still tested daily,

But God will give you rest.

You have been such a faithful worker and steward,
To our faithful God up above.
You, in return are being rewarded,
And I am so proud of you My Love!

Congratulations Zach on sewing on your stripe today! I am so proud of you and all the hard work you do. You put up with so much and yet you work so hard! Keep it up!

I'm glad he finally gets to wear his stripes! That was a long wait.

Ask him why he doesn't want to be my myspace friend. Is he snubbing me?

Amie,
I don't think he's checked that email account or his myspace account in awhile! I will tell him! Nothing personal. He's now busy studying for a history CLEP and just got done with his boxing match on Saturday. Always something!
