On my dream sheet, I had listed for over seas duty that I wanted to be stationed in Germany. I got sent to Korea.

For stateside duty, I had Homestead Air Force Base, south of Miami and yes, at that time, there were a couple of battalions of army stationed there.

So, while in Korea I realized the army was going to do the opposite of what I asked them to do so I changed my dream sheet to Ft. Bliss Tx.

Know where they sent me?

Yep....Homestead Air Force Base FL.

So, to get the army to do what you want them to do, act like you really want the opposite..... want out? Act like you want to stay in.

Big cuts to the military are's not going to be a fun place to least not until those military loving republicans are back in control and that might be awhile. Lets hope it happens sooner rather than later while there is still a military left.

Haha sounds like the army for sure^^^

I just wish I could do that to get the cav unit I want...buuuut my MOS can't go to those units anyways. Plus....I just really don't want to anymore lol

I did get my TA form done...haven't heard back yet which is pissing me off since I only have a couple more weeks to sign up for classes. But hopefully it'll get signed in time.

I wanted to get the process started this weekend but then my internet went out and I have no TA yet so I said sxrew it. I was going paintballing with my buddies.....then they never text me about it this morning.
Pretty sure I got stood up. Hmmm

Then. I was invited to a party at another friends house.....text him for the answer. So I text ANOTHER friend for a ride since he was taking some others...he told me he was leaving at 3( were doing a BBQ). And I just pulled into our parking lot...and who do you think drove by me with everybody in his car?

Yup the guy that said he'd give ME a ride.

So I text yet ANOTHER friend to ask if I could borrow his jack since ol' Moby the Mazda (trouble maker lemon car I can't get rid of) has a flat....he said he'd have to "think about it". W.t.f. I need a jack for all of one after noon while I get a new tire from ACROSS THE STREET and just. Agh whatevs.

So I'm pretty much over humanity for today. Going to go watch R.I.P.D. With me myself and I tonight.

The army bases I was stationed at, and the air force base as well, had a auto shop poor ole GI's could use. They had most every tool too.....

Maybe you could get a jack there?

Closed on Saturday when most of the GI's are off work? That's just another reason "military" and "intelligence" shouldn't be used in the same sentence.

That just doesn't make any sense at all..

Come to think of it....that kind of reminds me why I got out......

Now the real issue....every car comes with a jack....where's yours?

Today has just been full of complete randomness.

I learned a very valuable lesson today as well.....if your name is Castle and you have a horrid track record. With technology then save everything because your PlayStation 3 wseriously couldn'tcrash and you will lose all the progress you have on your game. Awesome.

Story time: so I was in Starbucks and the guy asked for my name right? So I told him castle because that's what I'm used to everybody calls me Castle and his comment to that was "that is a very strong, fortressy name"......i seriously couldn't even think of a reply.

Went on with my day and I get a text from my squadleaderthat I wasin HUGE trouble with1sgt because he had gone through the barracks and was mad at how messy they were and yelled at my plt sgtsincw its my week.

So I had to call my squad lead, my plt sgt AND 1sgt to explain that my arewas knly this one hallwayand one of the laundry rooms thati had alreadycleaned this morning...dafuq?? Still waiting to find out more....ihate thearmy.

But Beightspot of theday.found out one of my favorite book series is doing a signed book giveaway fora new release along with signed book platea, and 3 signed bookmarkers...aaaaand 2 free short stories! So stoked!

End randomness.

Oh my god. I just saw that post. My tablet is soooo bad with the space bar....

Anyways today kinda sucked....alot.

Started out good I suppose. I got started on registering for classes and all.

But heres the thing. Theres this one E-6 well call her ssg A. And she's one of those that all she sees is her career. She doesnt care about helping soldiers and she'll throw anybody under the bus. But in my f***ed up unit she's a shining star.

Well I don't know why she has this peraonal vendetta against me. She's had this horrible "youre a sh*tbag soldier" attitude towards me ever since I got back from leave. And the thing is I've hardly spoken to her. She had only been in the company for about 1 week when I got back so its not like I gave MYSELF this bad rep.

Im pretty sure that the other 2 females (who hate me) have been telling her stories about me.

And yeah I may have come to the company with a less than stellar record. I think that's where she's getting this view of me. Which is totally unfounded. I've been putting 110% into everything, kept my nose cleam, stayed out lf trouble, volunteered for EVERYTHING. But she hasnt been here to see it so she's going off others opinions of me.

Anyways, so I have this giant target on my back from her. She calls me out at PT, blames me for mistakes, calls me out when we have down time like I'M the ONLY one sitting there waiting for a tasking or something.

My squad leader has pulled her aside 3 times now to tell her to back off, and im not her soldier and if theres a problem my squad leader will take care of it ( hallelujah for her. She's one of tbe rare good ones)

When we play soccer for pt I join in, its one of my most favorite things to do on this earth. Second only to horses. And my profile is run at own pace and distance so im well within my rights to be playing. But she flips out , shell call me out in the middle of the game about my prodile...which in the first place is not open knowledge. Profiles are needed only for my CoC. Whish she is not.

Today though. She crossed the line. The acting 1sgt decided that we're basically having a company sports pt tomorrow to prepare those playing sports on wed. To practice. I wasnt even allowed to sign up for anything because of this ssg even though she let her soldier on profile sign up.
Then she made a big ol' fuss today that I was going to play tomorrow to the acting 1sgt that I shouldnt get to play because it would be a reward and if im not even running at pt...which I do but I can't do he banned me from ALL sports, whether pt, o-day or even just frg for fun sh*t. And for pt I have to make my own plan now that fits my profile...but I'm not allowed to do it with my plt.

What. The. ****. Is THAT?! That is complete bullsh*t. I give everything at pt and im trying to work my way off profile. Pain or no pain. And now I can't even workout with my main supporters an motivation. The only reason I can push myself so hard at pt is because I have eveybody else there and I don't want to be seen as the shammer and sh*tbag some see me as.

Now they're trying to completely ostracise me and call me out more.

Then it hit me. This e-6 ( sheoesnt deserve to be called as her rank. She doesn't deserve her rank) is using me as her scapegoat to advance her career. All she cares about is being sgm and im a bullet point on her ncoer to get her there.

Part of the nco creed is to MOTIVATE AND LEAD. Instead she is demoralizing and a career ruiner. NCOs like her...and "leadership" like hers is why I am SOOOO ready to get out.

Going into the army I was probably its biggest supporter. Everything was HOOAH. I was ready to be part of a team, and serve my country.

But this isnt thesame army it was when I joined. This is the army of team everybody for themselves and backstabbers. And fighting and serving themselves before others.

I want no part of it any more.

End rant

Yea, well, about the same thing happened to me some 35 years ago or so....Except I was stupid enough to re-enlist, and then it went bad. I think I eluded to it in some other posts with Okiegal....

Fortunately I was able to get out on breach of contract after serving 3 years 19 days, four hours and 32 minutes, and I have 3 honorable discharges. I kept one framed and on the commode for a long time....symbolic I guess, honorable discharge, commode....I think you get it...

Just keep that smile on your pretty face, keep you mouth shut, and ride the train till it gets to the station. They want to give you an attitude, label you with an attitude problem and then put the screws to you.

What you want is that honorable discharge and the things that go with it.

You've made it this long okay so play along and close the deal. Don't settle for anything less.
