Finished Grad school!!!!

This past week, my thesis (Connecting the Past to the Present: The Civilian Irregular Defense Group and it's Influence on the Global War on Terror) was accepted by the history department at the American Military University and my degree requirements are complete. In February I will be conferred with a Masters of Arts in Military History with a focus on War Since 1945. I'll find out on Monday if I graduate with honors, which it looks as if I will.

I get a small raise at work now (got to love public education's pay scale) and I also get the gift of time. I will now have two hours back with my wife each evening. The past six months I've been working on my thesis and have spent every evening after our daughter goes to bed pounding away on the computer doing research and writing. All of that is done and I'm stoked!!

Now I'll begin searching for a higher paying job with less stress than my current one. And, once I get a couple more bills paid off, I'll be able to start doing Jeepin' stuff again.

hey man, saw this thread last night but forgot to post

congratulations, and I hope I don't sound like a sap, but I think gaining back 2hrs a night of family time has incalculable value

also good to know that you, at least, will not be doomed to repeat history [post 1945, anyway ]
