Ladies and gentlemen, it has been a while since my last posting. This is because I have been in transit from KY to TX. It did not help my blogging life much that the POS ancient computer I had been using did not exactly survive the trip and I had to get a replacement. Though I am loathe to make endorsements on this sight, I will say that the people at Circuit City were incredibly helpful throughout the ordeal of trying to revive my comatose computer and in providing a replacement. I am slightly disappointed this weekend because I have just been informed that I will not get to be on a tank full time in my new battalion, but will be in charge of the headquartes platoon of my company because my expirience in that type of environment. I would much prefer to be tinkering on the tank and slamming through open terrain in a tank commander's hatch than in a command vehicle, but a soldier is expected to make personal sacrifices for the good of the unit.
Judging by the number of hits that this site actually gets, I am not going to assume that anybody really missed me, but it is nice to be back.
