Overdue for something new

Well, I haven't posted in a while so it's time for an update. I just came back from field training yesterday. We came in a day and a half early which was nice. On the way back the FDC (fire direction center) vehicle hit a pothole and threw everything inside the vehicle forward. Nine soldiers, rifles, books, and tools were everywhere. Fortunately nobody was hurt seriously. A few bruised wrists, backs, legs and a banged up collar bone. The rest of the trip home was uneventful. I got home and received a call from a friend of mine who lives in Pennsylvania and is in the National Guard there. He said he was coming in for training and wanted to see if he could spend the night. I happily obliged. That is something I really love about the military. You develop close relationships and although you may move around alot, odds are, wherever you go, there are other friends there too.

  1. this is very true. my bro in law is retired military... they have moved several times only to end up with friends that they were posted with at an earlier stage in life. in fact... after he retired he took a job with a military consulting firm and ended up at a job with another retired military friend from one of their moves!!!
