Congrats. Still waiting on mine. Over three years now…

sorry about that…I sawit after I posted…again congrats

Can I ask how you were contacted about it? I don’t know if I should be anxiously holding my breath for a phone call, USPS, FedEx or what.

Your FSO will either call or email you the day he or she getts the “offical word”. Email has been the norm.

I am deploying so I was given an official company letter stating that I was upgraded to level 2 (CAT II) which requires clearance.

Did you get your interim secret clearance?

No, Full clearance…
