Narrative: I started as a Second Lieutenant as an Administrative Officer in SAAC. I then tried to be jet pilot but during the training I realized a person could die doing this and I lost my edge_ I then spent a year as an Administrative Office for AFOSI at the District Headquarters In Chicago. After that I converted to a Special Agent and was assigned as the District Commander in Minneapolis, MN. In an effort not to move as offer, as the rniiltary required, I left active duty one day and became a reservist the next day- As a reservist I was on the street chasing bad guys for the next twenty years. Then I got a letter from AFOSI advising me that I no longer needed to maintain proficiency with my hand weapon because as a commander I would no longer be chasing bad guys, but supervising other special agents_ My rank has benefits but It took me out of being that very Special Agent and gave me the new title of Colonel
