On the Register!

Just before I left for my July 4th weekend, I got word that I was on the State Department Register.  Invitations to the September class will be starting (so they tell me) the week of July 14.  Invitations are based on your position on the Register, which is based on the results of your Oral Evaluation, plus bonuses for things like language knowledge and being a veteran.  As new people come on or off the Register, your position on it will change.  As of July 3, I was 18 out of 104 in my “cone” (specialty).

I spent the weekend in Lancaster, PA with old friends.  That’s Amish country, not quite another country, but certainly another culture.

    I’ll be scare for a bit…VIP’s abound here…We call “Chairman”, he prefers “Admiral” as he told me “Old habits stick, I hear a two star here prefers being called “Skipper”…then his line was “You can call me Mike”
