    “… the greatest detractor from high performance is fear: fear that you are not prepared, fear that you are in over your head, fear that you are not worthy, and ultimately, fear of failure. If you can eliminate that fear—not through arrogance or just wishing difficulties away, but through hard work and preparation—you will put yourself in an incredibly powerful position to take on the challenges you face" - Pete Carroll.

    US Army 1966-68 (I was drafted)

    Dec 66 to Dec 67 Vietnam. 2nd of the 1st Inf, 196th Light Infantry Brigade.

    Area's of operation; Tay Nihn, Iron triangle, Chu Lai, Quan Tri, Tam Ky, central highlands and along the Cambodian border. We were even put on standby during the 6 day war until Israel had things under control. They had C-130's standing by on the runway at Chu Lai.

    Spec 4

    Got out and was put on inactive reserve. Decided to go back in the service but saw how the Air Force live while over there and went with the AF. Went in as an Air Traffic Controler. Didn't like that job and transfered to the Information Office where I handled writing and making news releases. Was a gravy job working 8 to 5 Monday thru Friday. Like not even being in the military compared to my army time.

    Went in 1973 and got out 1977, as a Sergeant. Mainly because carter was screwing up the military.
    When I die I'm sure to go to heaven, cause I spent my time in hell.

    You get more with a kind word and a two by four, than you do with just a kind word.

If he means "promotable" there is no way not with twelve years service total and part of that with an eleven year break in the middle...the very best he could do even with waivers for time in service/ time in grade is E-7 (possibly E-8 if he had some pretty exemplry combat acction). No way eligible for E-9.

    Essentially, just one more thing proving what many of us have been saying...Psycho is NOT what he would like us to think.

    Not to mention if he was to go active duty, he would likely lose at least one Reserve/Guard stripe in the process.

    I agree that the very best he could do TIS-wise would be E-7.

    A Huey pilot. I knew you had issues. I've never met ONE that wasn't crazy as a loon behind the stick.

    One Major had to prove to me that you can in fact do a full roll in a Huey even though it is physically impossible. I was REAL happy about that.
