I’m Back!!!!!!

I am back on the face of the planet. So, I was a little deceived when I thought I would have time to blog at LTC. A combination of 0430 wakeups, fire guard every 3 nights, drill sergeant training AKA torture, no internet, a ton of training, and little cell phone reception, there was no blogging going on.

To summarize, it was one of the best and most difficult experiences ever. I….

…learned to have fun when things aren’t fun.

…qualified on an M-16.

…decided to not contract as a 2nd lieutenant.

…decided to go forward with vet school.

…met way cool (and some not so cool) people from the U.S. of A and Puerto Rico.



So, ya, I think there is some unspoken rule about not smiling in ACU’s, but….it’s to late. 🙂

Ooops, I did it again….
So, there it is. Uniform-not camis-minus the kevlar (helmet), LBE (hot looking suspenders with canteens and ammo pouches hanging off of it), and 30 pound ruck sack we normally have with it. Oh, and minus the rifle too. I’d probably get voted off the island if I posted a picture including the weapon….
Story of the day starts at PT. So, I’ve done workouts with medicine balls before. At fight club, we used to run across the room with someone about 7 feet apart, throwing them back and forth. Well, PT this morning included medicine balls, but in a very violent manner. Instead of being thrown to me, it was being thrown at me. Both of my the insides of my arms look like a red pen was taken and scribbled all over them. So much for that invincible thing I guess…..
