I spent a little over 20 years on active duty in the U.S. Army with units as diverse as the 8th and 4th Infantry Divisions to the 82d Airborne Division to the 902d Military Intelligence Group. My last 8 years was spent as a comptroller. I am married to a career Army Officer that is still serving and we continue to find ourselves moving every 2 or 3 years. When I retired in 2008 I set my sights on the accounting profession. I started a tax/bookkeeping service and work for a company called Forge Consulting. I try to take advantage of every opportunity I can find to learn from those in the profession with years and years of experience. I have slowly transitioned from "I don't know what I don't know" to "I now know what I don't know". I find that to be ideal position for truly learning the ropes of this complex profession.
