Oh it hasn't been that long. Wait, yes it has.
"The real problem was being able to stick it out, to sit in an office under the orders of a wee man in a dark gray suit and look out of the window and recall the bush country, the waving palms, the smell of sweat and cordite, the grunts of the men hauling jeeps over the river crossings, the copper-tasting fears just before the attack, and the wild, cruel joy of being alive afterward. To remember, and then go back to the ledgers and the commuter train, that was impossible. He knew he would eat his heart out if it ever came to that."

Awesome to see a Tube Stroker position for advertisement. Got to love being an 0341. We weren't using the 120mm in the Corps while I was in. Not sure if they have it yet. I know when I got out the second time, they were talking about utilizing the 120mm remote system. Would not having experience with 120s preclude someone from being considered?

Nevermind. In my zealousness I didn't see the comment about the shortlist, considering I'm just trying to start out. Good luck anyone else.
