"Off we go......into the wild blue unemployment lines?"
I received this email yesterday from an old friend. It needs no introduction or explanation from me:
I talked to my grandson the other day. He is a lifer in the Air Force, as is his wife. I asked him if he would be safe from the cutbacks and he said there is a 64% chance he will be discharged. I just can't believe this. He is in security, just got promoted into swat a few months ago, is squeaky clean....why would they want to get rid of someone like that, except that he is a lifer, has 13 years in so it would only be 7 more until his retirement. He said they are already cutting all the not so sharp people. With the upheaval the world is in right now, it just doesn't seem to be the time to be cutting good, experienced, loyal airmen. He has been deployed to Iraq and Afganistan 5 times since 2007. Geeez!
