Huhn, well, that was interesting. So, I'm researching some part of my personal past in regards to certification for the reboot. All this time I was under the impression that part of my severance from the Air Force was the result of a court martial. However, going through my papers packet and can't find the words "court martial." Everything I read is that it was an investigatory committee. It sure felt like a trial at the time.
What the fuck? Why the hell was it always referred to as a court martial? I'm fairly certain that's where I got that impression. Also, I was given reasons which weren't a part of the official record. Son of a bitch.
Okay, so I was a very different person back then. But I've always been observant and exact, those are some of the character traits I've keep. You have noticed how anal I can be about facts, haven't you? Yeah, it's a curse. I wouldn't have just made that part up. It's been over 25 years now, so I don't have clear memories of the whole thing. That's why I was rereading all the documents.
That event is a part of my personal identity, something I look back on as the impetuous for changing who I am. I'm not the same person I was then. There's a reason for that.
So, I'm sure you'll all be happy to know that I never was through a court martial.
I know I am at this point.
In case you're wondering, I have an honorable discharge. That was a little tricky to arrange, but well worth it (and deserved I might add). The certificate is hanging up in the office as a reminder.
