Okay, so in the short time I've been on ATS, my few posts have been all but ignored. Well I hope things are different with this one, because I think
I have found something about all this.
Yesterday I e-mailed a public affairs specialist, a sergeant, in the RI National Guard, and asked her if she could tell me anything. Today, at 0914
this morning, I get a call from her boss, a Lt. Colonel, telling me to call him back. That was unusual for a couple of reasons. First of all, I, being
in the Army myself, was attempting to use the chain of command of sorts, and go to the sergeant first. Instead of hearing back from her, I heard from
her commander... very unusual. Secondly, the Colonel sounded a little frantic, and asked me where I got the information that I was asking about, and
told me to call him back as soon as I got his message. He made it very clear that I need to call him back very soon.
I hope for my sake that I haven't ruined my military career, and I hope for all of our sakes that this isn't going to be a big deal. I will post
again with an update once I talk to the Colonel. I have a feeling this is our best bet as far as finding out any real info on this matter.
