“As you can guess very busy basically getting to learn a new job spec and a different position you’re your normally there and I believe it’s also a blessing to really be in this position in that you get to make the decisions and advise the government in terms of military matters. And so it’s an honor and a blessing, a little hard work but it’s workable.”
