    Looks like I'm going to be a Front Ranger soon!

    Colorado Springs, here I come!!

    I'm "penciled in" for orders to CO Springs. They could get changed, but it's certainly enough now to start researching houses and, more importantly, trails!!

    Beats me. I'm Navy and our only Battalions are in the Seabees... and I'm not a 'Bee.

    But... since I'll be out there, doing the "joint" thing, I imagine I'll find out!

    Ahhh. gotcha. Wasn't sure what "Front Ranger" meant. Either way, I'm jealous--it's quite the sought-after assignment for us too.

    Thanks! Me, too. That's the theory, so we'll see if it pans out. I've got all the other tickets I need with the possible exception of an IA and I've got time to squeeze one in before my board.

    And if I don't... well, CO Springs is a nice place to spend my last few years in the Navy!

    My CO spent about 6 months as a sandbox sailor last year (a little out of the box for an ED submariner).
