Organized As Always......
the Army has kept things interesting here. No computers were allowed here, we were told. Not true. It will really simulate the field experience; also not true (it sucked worse than Iraq in 2003. That's saying something). Last, you'll be back in MS by mid-October.... As a reward for being able to stay out of trouble and do my job at the same time, all without the need for adult supervision, I have been awarded an extra 10 days of duty at lovely Fort Irwin to medically support a maintenance team. Which is a pleasant way of saying I will stand by in case one of the mechanics cuts/smashes something, in which case I will bandage it and drive them to the post hospital. Sadly, this will probably be more pleasant than what the rest of the unit will be experiencing in MS, so I'll gladly take this opportunity to review my Dari language book, learn how to operate a PlayStation Portable, and meditate while appearing attentive.
I need to buy more books and PSP games, I think.
