I have returned

    After 9 months of training in the US Army I'm finally back home. I got to report to my reserve unit the weekend I got back. It's great to be home. Eventually I'm going to add one or two entries about my experiences at BCT and AIT. I'm tpying to find a job right now. If anyone knows of anyone that's hiring, let me know. My dream job, which I probably won't get, is being a stage lighting consultant for churches. So if anybody knows of any churches that are looking into buying some new lights, give them my E-mail.

Sleep is a crutch

So I've just gone 31 hours with no sleep and have no intention of sleeping anytime soon. Sure, I feel a little tired, but I'm coming home! I cannot miss my flight. This will be my first time back home in 6 months. Army Strong.

Army Life

I can't remember what it's like to be a civilian. Seeing large, mean-looking people carrying large, mean-looking weapons is an everyday thing. I have a new vocabulary with words like jacked up, squared away, blue falcon, hooah, and dress-right-dressed. I have strange desire to become an Airborne Ranger. Places and things like "Wal-Mart" and automotive transportation are foreign to me now. I have a new hair style that doesn't involve a whole lot of hair. I feel naked without a canteen attached to my hip. Here's another Army cadence that goes along with this blog entry:
Uh oh, oh no
Sha na na na na
Army life is not my style
They got me lookin' like Gomer Pyle
I used to wear my faded jeans
Now I'm wearin' Army greens
I used to drive a Cadillac
Now I'm ruckin' on my back
Army life is not my stuff
They got me lookin' like Forrest Gump
I used to eat at Mickie D's
Now I'm eatin' MREs
They sat me in a barber's chair
Spun me around I have no hair
Army Life is not my style
They got me lookin' like Gomer Pyle

Back on Phusebox

As you all know, I joined the army reserves. I just got out of basic training two weeks ago. Now I'm at Fort Gordon, Georgia, going through advanced individual training and writing e-mail and phusebox entries on my cell phone. I've missed all of you. Please write me sometime because I really want to know how everybody is doing.
