We got word today that the results of the promotion board are imminent. We should know something in the next week - possibly as soon as tomorrow. In this case, no news is good news for the next few days - the commanders will get advance copies of the results in order to inform the non-promotes in person. The BEST thing that could happen right now is that MacGyver doesn't talk to his commander for the next 7-10 days.
I'm a basket case. I need a drink and a case of Tums. Or some Ativan.
