A new start!

Here is DD and Gromit at his passing out parade 3 years ago. Now as you can see Gomit is in the British Army but unfortunately he has permanently injured his shoulder and is no longer 'war' fit. This means that if we were in a situation we had to send troops into a war zone the Army doesn't think his shoulder won't stand up to the strain so at the beginning of April he will be officially discharged on medical grounds. He is home for Christmas leave and doesn't have to go back. Now he has to look for a job on 'civvy' street. The Army has trained him in air conditioning and refrigeration so that will be the field he will look for a job. I am crossing my fingers & toes that he is able to get a job as in the current economy jobs are not two a penny.

If he gets a job him and DD can move out of our house. That will be strange as I've got very used to having them here.

P.S I've had to put the word verification back on the comments box because of unwanted spam.

well done on him for doing what he could :) He looks very smart in his suit! Fingers crossed here too for the job hunt.

I wish him the best of luck. It's really tough out there ATM so I hope the job-angels are on his side.

Heating and cooling is usually a field where they need workers here in Canada and it pays well. At least the army didn't just dump him, but provided him with training to lead a productive life outside of the military.
