I found out today my extension in Italy was approved, which makes me a very happy boy. I wanted to stay another three years, but even after begging and pleading, I was only approved for one year, despite following all the rules. I ran into another guy from my squadron today who was also going through the same ordeal I was with his extension; however, he ignored all the rules, and was given a three year extension. Kinda makes me wish I would've been a little more devious. Regardless, I'm there until February of 2012. I still might get the opportunity to extend again, but that's a battle I'll have to fight next year.
