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!!

Hey skiahh, I just moved from RI to Denver a few weeks ago. Much nicer weather so far. I do miss the ocean though.

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!

Sorry... just meant someone who lives and plays in the Front Range of CO.

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