Soldier to Soldier

To my brothers and sisters who have fallen in service to our country, I salute you. To those of you still fighting the good fight, Hoorah. My thoughts and heart go with you. Thank you for preserving my rights.

I have enjoyed working at Syntroleum. I gave nearly 8 years of my life to honing the technology and moving the company forward. I’ve been part of several historic moments in the production of alternative fuels. There have been a few bad times to go with the good, but overall my experience with them will be remembered fondly.

I quit not out of frustration, not out of spite or even passion. I was presented with an offer I couldn’t refuse from another company. So, I’ll close one chapter of my career, take a deep breath (and a couple of days) and dive into the next one on November 27th.

My posts my be a little dodgy around here for the next week (like they haven’t been for the past several) as I spend my remaining time with Syntroleum tying up loose ends and making the transition go as smoothly as possible for them.

To my friends and mentors I leave behind, you will be missed. Thank you and good night.

Yay! Good for you. Now get out there and kick some serious butt. Or at least poke a few with that cane. I'm sure you'll be missed, but someone else is lucky to get you.
