" I've reviewed the resume several times, and the best feedback I can come up with is, “Wow”. I know that’s so useful and eloquent. Awe is not something I am usually struck with, but that is where I find myself. So, to close the business end of this: I think this resume is perfect. I accept it. Thank you! If you’ll allow me to shift gears for a minute, I'd like to tell you what this means to me. I am told by some that transition is supposed to be a joyful time: they’re wrong. It’s terrifying, confusing, and painful. I'm a firm believer in defining the moments in my life, but I cannot deny that Master Sergeant Harvey, United States Air Force defines me. Just contemplating laying aside the uniform taps a well of emotion that is indescribable. For so long that is seems like forever, the mantle “Airman” has informed my thoughts, my actions, my speech, and my being. Therein lies the rub. When I look at all my EPRs and whatnot, I just can’t think, “let’s translate these experiences into KSAs”. When I look at those documents I think about laughter and tears, friends found and friends lost, good times and the suck. I know there’s some skills in there, there has to be, but right now, all it is to me is visions of dear friends, family really, and a life. That’s not particularly helpful in writing a resume. So, thank you for doing such a great job of translating all of the gibberish into something useful for an organization. I couldn't have done this. I think this will open many doors for me. With appreciation. "
