Rob,
Thanks for all your years of service and good luck with the transition...I'm a few years behind you before that starts for me.

JCISFA is an impressive organization and I was lucky to be there during its initial formation. Hopefully it will continue to play a pivotal role as we continue conducting SFA missions in the future. It has helped me tremendously as we partner with the Iraqi 2d Federal Police Division.

Then went to FORSCOM; wasn't as much fun as being in but it was okay. Bad news is you have to decide what to wear every day...

Oh, and the bit about 'nobody is in charge' -- not true, among civilians everyone thinks they're in charge...

In any event thanks for all you did and hope all works out well -- though I'm sure it will.

Ken, Sully,

Many thanks. It will be interesting for sure, and I think based on some of what I've been doing here on capability development, particularly in the "P" piece of DOTMLPF I may be of continued use there since HRC and hte other relate Personnel functions are moving to Knox as part of BRAC.

MarcT - its in the mail - I'll cc John T as well, meant to do it the other day, but I've been making the round of appointment on the retimrement checklist - there are quite a few

Wayne - I'll shoot you a PM back


Best, Rob
