re: Duckworth to block Promotions for 1,123 Military Officers Unless Esper Promotes Vindman - s0tiger
I am on leave and haven't checked this week, but as of last Friday there was no release date for the promotion list. The CSL MILPER just said board files will open one day after. Hope you are right, thought it would have been out in May....

re: Duckworth to block Promotions for 1,123 Military Officers Unless Esper Promotes Vindman - s0tiger
I know that, but I can't access myboard file to validate it for my CSL look because the list isn't out yet so I am not promotable.

re: New Covid 19 symptom: acute alcohol poisoning - s0tiger
See my post above, the Dem governor is not trying to inflate numbers. He has been pretty level headed and as common sense as any throughout. We shouldn't stoop to the ignorance of the other side when trying to make political points. If you don't live here it is easy to assume the homo Dem governor i...
