For the past 4 years, Steve has been working as a Private Security Contractor. When we first started out, we thought it would be something that we would be involved in for no more than 2 years. It's strange how things work out some times. The OTHER plan has always been for Steve to get on the Police Department. Here in Reno, it's almost next to impossible... it just takes so long, and they drop people like crazy.
Well, the past few months, we have been praying about what the next career move for Steve should be. It really surprised me, but as we have prayed about it, we have felt the peace of the spirit. Only thing is, I almost don't want to tell anyone because it's one of those things that people have big reactions to.
So, this is what we are planning. The contract that Steve is currently on officially ended in March. To keep him from being unemployed for too long, give us the opportunity to save more money, and enable Steve to be here for the baby when it's born, we have gotten the contract extended till the end of May. That's about 5 weeks before the baby will arrive. At some point between now and June, Steve is going to Re-enlist into the National Guard and attend Special Forces (SF) Training. He will be stationed in a unit in Draper, Utah (no, we are not moving to Utah). SF training is located at Fort Bragg, North Carolina and is any where between 42 weeks to 18 months long, depending on different training requirements. It is a PCS (permanent change of Station) move, so we will be moving to Ft. Bragg for the duration of his training (probably no earlier than August). After he is done, we will be moving back here to Reno.
that is the plan.

Sounds like a fun plan! Good luck!!
I love plans!! I hope things go well, we will miss you!!
You prayed about it, so it's obviously the right thing to do. Good luck with all of your upcoming adventures!
I'm happy that you guys have a plan that you feel right about. I know it's been tricky. Good luck with it all!
I'm so glad that you are going to be able to be together! We will miss you during the time you're away but I'm glad to hear it's only temporary. You are an amazing couple, you've been through so much and remain strong and faithful. I look forward to hearing more about your upcoming changes and can't wait to meet the new baby.
oh wow! have you ever been to north carolina? so after this training will steve move to utah by himself? im confused?!?!?
sounds like a great plan. Hopefully it will go quickly so you can be settled again. I can see how much you love reno!!
Brings you back to the south for a minute. :)
Yeah... I think this is going to be a great adventure. I've never been to NC, so that will be good. Plus it will be the first time that we will enjoy a "normal" family lifestyle where the husband leaves for work in the morning and comes home in the evening. I am really looking forward to experiencing that!
I will definately miss Reno, and will be longing to get back to my home and the friends that we have here.
