You're absolutely welcome.
As long as you don't tell name or unit here, this forum is usually a 'safe' place to get info. The minute the spouse starts calling offices on base or sending emails, is when it could look negative on the Soldier.
Going Warrant was the best thing in the Army I could imagine- I originally planned to do 5yeas then ETS out, however my son's health issues changed that plan 7years ago. (He was born with heart defects- he's had 2 open heart surgeries and is doing great!)
There's nothing wrong with staying NCO- but in my opinion I wasn't a good NCO. I didn't get in trouble, I can't understand why Soldiers DO get in trouble, in my opinion they're all adults when they signed up so I don't want to babysit or have to hold someone's hands through the basic stuff.
I enjoy the technical portion of the job, so now I get to put all my focus there and let the NCOs deal with the Joe who's late to formation, having family problems, needs to work on PT, whatever. I'm not a very good "people person" so I think I serve the Army better letting someone else do the "people stuff".
The higher an NCO gets up the ladder, the less they will have time to really work on their MOS. I enjoy the MOS so it's the best I could imagine.
Oh and don't think it's less work- I've called my wife 100times LESS this deployment, and work longer hours back at Garrison. We knew that coming in though, and she was supportive of it all. (does she just like the extra money??
Anyway, I really do hope it works out for ya'll- Ask if you have questions.
Be Proud of what you do- and do it Well! ~me
