Well Gentlemen, today’s the day... I’m off to Basic Training. It’s 04:10, in roughly 20min, I’ll be boarding a bus with roughly another 79 recruits or so, headed for the airport and our dispersment to our Posts/Bases. I’ll be flying solo as I’m the only one going to Ft Lennardwood... everyone else is going to Benning, Jackson and somewhere else(too tired to remember...) My son didn’t handle my swear in so well, although I was the one with the most family present (12 out of 13 family members made it) and I expect that I will not be able or allowed to use my phone during BT, so this is a temporary goodbye and I’ll be back in 9 weeks.

Thank you both and I definitely shall take the advice to heart, currently bored to tears, my flight doesn’t leave until the afternoon... currently trying to chain smoke the last of my cigs and be done with ‘em. I figure I should kick the cigs n stay off ‘em after BT anyway. The checkpoints stuff is all new to me, haven’t flown since pre 9/11. Don’t know what to think about all that though... I guess as long as it keeps us safe??? Anyhoo, keep the pipes puffin’ and I’ll join you when I can

Yep arrive at the airport at 0600 for a 1500 flight, "hurry up and wait", that's the army motto
