Time really flies so fast. I am glad that I see my children everyday, that is my main reason why I really don't want to leave them. I don't want to miss the chance of seeing them grow up! I submitted my package for career advancement the other day and I am afraid of the result. If I advance, that would mean that I have to send my family back in the States and I will have a sea duty but it will give us a room for some finacial cushion. If I don'tmake it, its good because I don't have to leave my family... but... I am scared too of the employment opportunities outside the military.... Life is a challenge!
