anyhow...mad props to your buddy for going to Monterey bay (Presidio). I got married in Carmel so I am very envious. I applied to NPS but didn't get accepted.
Flying isn't for everyone. I know a lot of guys who get out and go into something else than fly. It's glamorized through the media, but in reality, it's far from it. Don't get me wrong, most days I love flying, but I can't see myself doing it for the rest of my life. Tell my buddies how they are enjoying the 6 month extension (12 in total) being deployed on a carrier. That does wonders for your personal and family life back home.

He's also going to be a FAO in Germany. Not a bad gig if you ask me.
