Just for those of you who haven't heard the latest, I (Grant) have decided to trade in my stripes and go through the rigorous and painful Officer Candidate Program to become a second lieutenant. It's a step forward in pay but more than anything, it is a big step up for my family and a better experience serving over seas. Another motivator which is no small thing is the fact that a bunch of guys at work that I feel are substandard performers have followed Ben into the Warrant Officer ranks. I don't want to be junior to suckas, so officer is the way to go.
