    Thank you! Now I have to do all the preparing and getting ready to go. I am both excited and a little nervous ( more nervous about getting all settled somewhere new).

    Sounds like a good assignment!

    By the way try to do your oath ASAP. It will show up as Date of Rank and can shave a couple months off of your promotion timeline if you do it early enough.

    Hi wtbcrna!

    This makes sense! Thank you for posting. Now I really and fully understand why my recuiter had me oath on Dec 2006! When I go in August I will already have 8 months in rank. However the first 8 months will be as reserve commission and I have to re-commision upon shipping to the Army, which may be different.

    congrats again to the new AF nurse!
