I am presently in the process of switching to the Navy. It will provide me with different options closer to home.

I have been busy. Our primary mission in the Guard now is to keep the soldiers medically and dentally ready. With over 10,000 soldiers in Florida we are kept busy. Many days we work over 12 hours. In the military failure is not an option. It is not about you, but the mission. I wish everyone would learn some lessons from military training. It is always a priviledge to serve with those who are committed to our country.
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.
Pray for all of our soldiers who are away from home. Study history or we are doomed to repeat it.
It was 2 years ago I was in Iraq for the Holidays. I wish all of the soldiers who are deployed a safe season and they should all be in our prayers and thoughts. Freedom is not free. MAJ B
Every-time I’m on drill I am humbled by the men and women who serve our country, with the sense of duty and self sacrifice they show. Thank the soldiers when you can. Remember; Some gave all, and all gave some. Pray for all of our military, especially the ones deployed, away from their home and loved ones. If you know someone deployed, see if their family needs help. It can be as rough on them as their deployed family member. Have a great Holiday Season, and think of those who can’t celebrate at home due to their service. MAJ B
I wonder what others think when politicians redefine things for their own good. What do you think about the fact that we now have 50,000 non-combat troops in Iraq? Over night we redefine things. Our media dosen’t question it. What are your thoughts? MAJ B
Don’t forget to vote!! Do your homework. Wish I could tell you to read the paper or watch the news. Have good open discussions with others.
A lot of people running for office talk about their military service but seem to have forgotten the military values they were taught!!!
I wish politicians would stop using our soldiers for political reasons. Support our troops. Do your home work!
I don’t have much free time and we are limited on the computer to 1/2 hour. We have a very busy training schedule, processing and paper work, getting gear issued. I recieved all of my gear today, including my 9mm. The gear ways more than me. You should see me moving it around the camp. Yesterday I recieved 7 shots. The anthrax was a lot of fun. The smallpox vaccination is a 21 day healing adventure. I tried to tell them I got it 50 years ago! The food isn’t bad, though we don’t always have time to get to lunch. Today I had a MRE, meals ready to eat. Use your imagination. It was worse. When in theater I should have more time to write. The troops here are a dedicated group and are very helpful. They really appreciate the Physicians and Dentists. Appreciate a nice soft bed, we share bunk beds, 4 guys to a room, and a hard matress. Got to go, my time is up.
I received my warning order today. I am to mobilize October 8 and to report to Ft. Benning on October 11. My 90 days Boots on the Ground (BOD) are 20 Oct.-17 Jan. As I learn more I will share it. This was pushed back and a couple of weeks later than I was originally told. You learn to be flexible in the Army.
