I have not. Hmmm. I'll have to see if its on Amazon.


Oh. Caveat to my list of things to do freedom blah blah blah....

Fix my dang truck!!! I think I told y'all about the '65 ford pick up I got from the grands???? Any who so my mom apparently wants to drive it down to tx instead of trying to barrow a car trailer to haul it down....
This truck has no heat/no ac/ the brakes failed LAST YR and I don't know how well they actually "fixed" them. The bed is about 70% rusted out with just a slab of metal welded on...she's kind of a mess right now....and my mom wants to make the 15+ hr trip on the highway to take it to TX.

I.e. I need to throw my tax return into repairs so she doesn't DIE. Lol

But also. SUPER excited to have it there once I get out aaaaaaah!

Hey Roperchick......did you see where they might cut back the army to pre-WWII levels?

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

My service is so bad out here -_- I've written thus post three times only to lose it when ts trying to post.

In answer to your question no, but I'm not surprised. Between soldier, unit, pay, TA, benefits, and GI Bill cuts were going to be a skeleton army by the time we get there.

Luckily the NG is recruiting and offering sweet incentives to all the active getting out now that they're fed up with this shiza.

Even our FTX has been cut. We were supposed to be out here for 2 weeks. Instead were on day 2 of an eight day FTX.
Or MREs aren't even paid for any more. Used to be paid by the unit. Not its straight out ta our paycheck. And we all know finance NEVER messes up our LESs *snort*

IRS all good I guess. Were going to hit another war and then it'll be a giant jumblefudge to recruit AGAIN.

When you get out why not get your CDL and drive?



It is what I do and I really enjoy it.

There are companies out there that transport horses too.

I was actually thinking about that as an option.

Right now I'm working on NG options. They said there's a chance I could MOST to 88M (driver) or diesel mech. Based on where I live. Super schweet.

My dad mentioned driving the security trucks for banks and what not. Seems legit too haha.

Its a super pain trying to make these plans while I'm stuck across the ocean though. I have a giant list of things I need yo do that I can't do till I'm home and I can't get home till next Jan. Grrrr

Anywho. Yeah. I'm so over this unit. Back to back FTX. 70% of our equipment is broke. Half our trucks are broke.

This next FTX is June 2-10....yaaay so glad I get to head TO the field on my birthday.
I asked to take leave the 1st-14 to go home.....like really I have less than 10 months left here. Don't think I'm that deciding factor for the FTX being a success..but no. I have to drive the LMTV (don't get me wrong I love that truck. But I also love home and wanted to be there just once this year.)

Aaand then the usual rant about the crappy NCOs here. Blah blah blah haha. Won't bore y'all.

Besides all that. I can't even sign up foe the school I want -_- because the school GO for non Hawaii schools quit and they don't have a budget to hire a new one.... oh and they won't let you get TA without one.

I love Hawaii. Just so much. -.-


In good news though....finally got rid of the Mazda I was cursed with for 3 years.

Most stuff broken. Sounds just like 1976 when Jimmy Carter was president.
