    Changing Specialty

    I appreciate the input, my only defense of my tower experience is it was at MCAS Miramar, which is an ATC-7 equivalent, which is why I figured my tower experience would be more applicable, but I do agree there is a lot that I have yet to learn on both sides of the terminal/enroute split.
