Not true i am a texas native and got sent to EWR and made my commute everytime. Also i only sat in EWR for 2 and a half months before my base advancement to Houston. You can stay in EWR as long as you want at least for people hired lately. Congrats texan. PM me if you want some advice on the best ways to commute out of EWR.
It's about time you graduated from the good ole Geronimo! Good things come to those who bust their a$$, you definitely paid your dues. Now if you'd just pull those Flowmasters off that 6 cylinder truck! Seriously, congrats.
