In the Army! And Then Some...

I’m back. It has been a long time, but I finally have the opportunity to blog. It’s been almost four months since my last post; so let me provide some details on what I’ve been up to.

Well, the biggest news is that I got married. And that was only four days ago. My wife – Jennifer – is such a dork. She made it difficult for me to keep a straight face during the ceremony. I’m usually serious with stuff like this, but that didn’t hold up well, especially when the bride was making funnies with her face. But I love her and that’s what it all comes down to…right? ☺

I’m also currently training in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. I’m going through Advance Individual Training (AIT) to become a Military Policeman (MP) and I’ve been doing it for close to three months now. It has been a frustrating journey and I’m glad it’s almost over (graduation is on Jan 15).

My next stop after graduation leads me back to Fort Bragg, North Carolina. I was there from 2001-2005. This time I head back as an MP instead as an Infantryman. It’s gonna feel weird passing by my old unit knowing that my “humping” days (road-marching with a million-pound rucksack) are pretty much done and over with.

I would like to write about my experience at the Warrior Transition Course (WTC) as well, but that requires an entire post on to itself, which I am too lazy - and unmotivated- to write. I’ll just say that my time there was a joke. And I still have a bitter taste in my mouth from all the hoopla that went on. That program needs to be abolished, and the geniuses that engineered it shot. Ok, maybe not shot, but definitely slapped in the face.

Waiting To Do Something

This waiting is beginning to annoy me. One more week until I put on the uniform. I can't wait to get the ball rolling.

Priorities till then:
  • Pushups
  • Situps
  • Running (Ouch!)

Multimedia message

Here's the first pic from my Blackberry sent to Blogger. This means I'm now in business. Yup yup.

Blogging Again

I'm starting this blog up again to chronicle my journey back into the United States Army. It's mostly gonna be through my Blackberry, so yes, I am trying out this mobile blogging thingy.

Right now, I am still in sunny Arizona. I was suppose to be in training since the 1st of August, but my paperwork got screwed up, so now I'm scheduled to leave on the 20th. It sucks because this means that my training will continue all the way into the new year. Oh well, shizzle happens.

My job in the Army will be that of a Military Policeman. Training for this will be in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. Before that though, I will be attending the Warrior Transition Course in White Sands, New Mexico, and it will be a month long.
