So sorry I couldn't attend the 35th

Hello everyone, sorry I haven't been in this site for a while. As for the 35th reunion, I had everything paid for, all set up & planned, and I had just started working at the West Palm Beach Veterans Medical Center October 2013, and as you know how strict working in the Federal Gov't can be, well since I was a brand new employee in training status and so many established employees had put in for leave over that Thanksgiving long weekend, all I would have been asking for was that Friday off with no pay, but my supervisor just couldn't let it happen based on seniority, so I had to retrieve all my expenditures that were pre-paid from when I was still at my previous state of FL job, but when I accepted the VA job, H.R. told me they couldn't promise I'd be able to take that time off and it would be up to whatever department I started working for. So needless to say, I was so looking forward to attending the 35th, but for sure God willing, I am looking forward to our 40th.
