I made it. Finally. After 11 years I have finally made E-7. I just wanted to thank all the Senior NCOs out there that have shaped me. All the Seniors that have inspired me. I know i have great shoes to fill, and it is a position and job i don't take lightly. Any Seniors that have advice for a young E-7 i am willing and ready to copy. Thank you once again in advance for what i know will be an out pouring of advice and leadership that i have come to trust and respect in these forums.
