23 Jul 09,
Well, Internet Explorer keeps telling me I have issues and shuts down when I try to open my blog, somehow I got on this time. The 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team is just finishing up our last couple of days at Fort Chaffee, Arkansas.
The first week was miserably hot, seeing 105 while wearing all our Army gear. The final week the temperatures dropped down almost 15 degrees and we even saw some rain. But then again, we are the Thunderbirds and we always see rain when we train. I remember the Afghans loved us because they had been in a draught until we arrived, then the rains came.
I'm still the Acting First Sergeant and I'm still awaiting a slot in a school before I can get my promotion.
Miss Dub is at Falls Creek Baptist Assembly this week which has left Mrs. Dub at home all by herself. I'm glad I get back tomorrow. Of course, two weeks is nothing anymore when I've done 6 months, 1 year, 1 1/2 years, but it makes me appreciate what I have and what I'm doing it for.
I hope each and every one of you is doing well.
Be safe and have a great day.
