Scott is separating from the Air Force after 14 years of service. Today is his last day of work, but he’ll still be on Active Duty status until September. We spent many months discussing it, and we decided it’s what we want. And more than likely he wouldn’t be able to stay until retirement anyways because of the newest promotion system. I think it’s bittersweet. He has enjoyed his career, but it’s not what it used to be. It’s time. He’s already lined up a job working from home starting in September and he’ll be taking on more of the household duties and Damien’s appointments. That sounds good to me!
It feels like the end of an era. Scott and I joined at the same time and met at our first duty station. We’ve grown up in the Air Force together and supported each other through everything. Even though he won’t be in the trenches with me anymore, I know he’ll still continue to be my rock. I’m looking forward to the future.
