Well it has been a great couple weeks. I have been able to come home the last two weekends in a row. Mallory's family, my family, and Marissa hosted an engagement party for us at Smith State Park. Thank you to everyone who came and celebated with us, and put up with listening to my speech. Tomorrow is the celebration of Trinity's 25th year. I am greatly looking forward to seeing my church friends both old and new.

Wow so it has rained here alot this week. One of my guns was going out to the field as a replacement and the weight of the track caused a suction and sank the whole thing up to the turret. The repairs will be several hundred thousand dollars. Everything inside was totaled. I do have good news though. I just got promoted to platoon leader this week! Which means I am now responsible for trying to get that gun fixed. :(
