According to MyPay, Michael is scheduled to receive payment for all monies due him through 15 August on 27 August. He has seen it posted to his MyPay account with his own eyes but, like his mother, he will truly believe it when the money is deposited into his USAA bank account next Wednesday.
I'm not sure what happened today except to say that the Captain in IG handling it dropped the ball, did not follow through with what he told Michael yesterday that he personally would have the amount due him today when Michael called him, decided to or had scheduled 2 days of leave that started *today*, left no information in his office to tell Michael when Michael called today per the Captain's orders yesterday and it took Michael's Major 30 minutes to get it accomplished through the IG to the point of having it posted on MyPay by 1700 today.
Indeed Rank Does Have Its Privilege.
Michael asked me to express his heartfelt thanks for your prayers, thoughts, chants, solidarity, fit throwing, threats and anything else you did to get us both through this situation up to this point. Hopefully we will raise a glass in toast to all of you for fighting the fight with us, finishing the course and helping us keep the faith a week from tomorrow when the system actually works like it should.
And the band played on... - ...yes, that was me a few weeks ago imploring everyone to start their blogging engines again. And now, look, I've taken weeks off...again. Such is life. ...
