Army #10

According to, the Department of the Army is the 10th Best Place to Work within the Federal Government.   With a score of 64.8, down .02% since 2005, the Army scores higher then the Air Force (#11 – 63.8), and the Navy (#19 – 61.1).  The Marine Corps, a sub-component of the Navy came in at 63.3, interestingly higher then its parent agency.  The Coast Guard, a sub-component of the Department of Homeland Security, trumps the other four armed forces with the top score of 68.6.

Within the Army and Air Force, the National Guard (74.5, 67.7) is apparently a better place to work then the Reserves (60.7, 62.1).  There are not separate rankings for the USNR, USCMR, or the USCGR.

The US Army Force Command (FORSCOM), to which my unit, the 82nd ABN DIV is a part, scored a 68.

WCWS – coming down to the wire


Congrats to the ladies of Arizona and Tennessee. Az and Wa have a rematch tonight at 1900, and I am confident Az will bring it home, setting up a the match against Tn.  The Lady Vols with their southpaw pitcher, stikeout queen Abbott,are playing well, hitting a whole lot stronger, and keeping the e-count down.  I have still yet to pick between Tn and Az.

We shall see.
