Well, its official. On Monday, I move from the brigade staff down to a platoon leader position. For those of you that aren’t familiar with the structure, I’m going to move from being in charge of no one and only responsible for planning communications, to being responsible for a platoon of soldiers. I’m getting a really good platoon sergeant, which is good and I’ve got a good group of soldiers that I’m falling in on.
So, in the grand scheme of things, what does that mean? It means I go from planning the mission to making the mission happen. It will be good. I’ll get to actually experience the relationship between a platoon sergeant and a platoon leader from the platoon leader side of it (I’ve been a platoon sergeant before in my past life as an E7, sergeant first class). And I get to get back to what’s really important, taking care of soldiers. I’ve got a bunch of young talent and that’s exciting.
So that’s all for now!
