The PES E Beginnings.

I am currently a PES E serviceman who has been in service for 22 months. Just a side note, I was a PES A soldier during the initial body check-up and inspection at CMPB. However, some body conditions surfaced. There was no other choice for me but to declare it even though it would 100% dash my hopes and dreams of going to command school. I was given a temporary PES D and subsequently E1L9. As a result, my friends were all shocked about my PES Status as I was a very fit individual during my secondary school days when I was in NCC.
