*** Thanks to Military.com newsletter I now know that Colorado Springs is #6 on this list of Top 10 Cities for Defense Jobs (with no mention of Ft. Carson) thanks to two AF Bases and the AFA!! All the same, I thought this was interesting and nice to see...
*** I know that some of my readers are in the process of PCSing or are expecting orders in the near future. I also know that buying/selling or renting your home can be stressful so I wanted to point out the Housing Assistance Program incase you are unfamiliar!
"Vice President Joe Biden today announced the Defense Department’s plan to expand its housing assistance program with $555 million devoted to servicemembers forced to sell their homes at a loss due to the country’s struggling housing market. "

*** Navy Chopper Crash. I'm sure you've all heard or read about this already but I wanted to post about it for 2 reasons: The First being that it's extremely sad and my heart goes out to these sailors' families. The Second is because I was just near this base while in San Diego. Remember I told you I was spending some time with my friend Noel. Her sister ran a 5k across the bridge from SD to Coronado. Not that my just having been there makes me any more special than anyone else but for all I know these sailors could have been running the 5k (this is an annual race sponsored by the Navy). Who knows... all the same I found this very heart wrenching.
Well... sadly it's looking like I didn't get the job with Tierra Vista. =( When I went in last week and met with the property manager she said that I would know one way or the other the beginning of this week and I haven't heard anything! Is it just me or does taking the "hint" really suck?! All the same the search is still on! I need all the support and positivity I can get here ladies!!! Fingers (still) crossed!
