The closer we get to the end of this thing the blurrier it gets. I have no idea where i'm going to be or what i'm going to be doing between now and then. Everyone wants something to engage them, right? That's why you have hobbies, to do something that engages you. My mind has seeped out of my right ear and into my cargo pocket. Or maybe a smaller pocket, i don't know. I just read and read. You know that feeling that you're not in the real world anymore? The machine's gears keep turning regardless of what you think. My body has become nothing more than just a puppet. Something for other people to interact with. I, on the other hand, live in my books, ideas, and dreams. I still care though, somehow. Still performing to the highest standard.

So, i'm not an MP? Apparently the State doesn't have me as 31B qualified, which means i'm not on a promotion list. Somebody is messing up my life, and i don't like that. I'm trying to get it fixed on my end but the Guard to Active Army interface is a little odd. Certain paperwork goes back to KY, while others go up into Brigade. I'll get it figured out.

There are so many things I want to do. It makes me excited just thinking about it. See you all soon!

hmmm, that sucks. that happened to a lot of people while i was in GTMO. people went through school to become MP's but the state or anyone else had no paperwork on it. i'll go through the stuff you left here, maybe there's a dd-214 or something that says you're an MP.

what kind of books are you reading? TM's and FM's? or actual real books, like a good novel? i haven't read anything since i finished In the presense of mine enemy. pretty good book, it was about a world where the 3rd reich won WWII, and how Jews had to live as Aryans if they wanted to go undiscovered.

has the package arrived yet? it's been a week, hopefully it's not lost :-\

well, when you get back we'll find something that will engage you, or someone ;) bwahahahahaha! have you been doing any programming? once you get back and break the routine you're in, your brain will get back to normal. you'll also have to ninja Talyn back from Josh. he's been using him as his desktop.. lol. so, that will take some major brain processing. so prepare for that ;) other than that, maybe we can build some big ass fort. or atleast go camping. you know, old skool. maybe even take a visit to mud lake?

All kinds of books, mostly non-Army stuff though. Except romances.. there's nothing wrong with romance in a book or complex relationships.. but there has to be some assassinations and explosions or spaceships too!

Doesn't anyone else think assassination is a really strange word..

When you think about it, its more than just strange. Kinda perverted in a way.

You're still a Hero!
You don't know me, but after reading what you wrote, I just want to say that regardless of what the Army, National Guard - or anyone else for that matter, says - you are still a Hero and don't forget that! We are very proud of what you are doing. This is the first time I have ever responded to one of these, but I am the wife of one of the Soldiers you are with and I am not there to know how things are, but please know that I support you and pray for you all everyday. Be safe!

See you soon
It's so great to hear you say "There are so many things I want to do. It makes me excited just thinking about it. See you all soon!"

Just hold that thought. It won't be long now and you'll be back!! Glad to hear it and looking forward to seeing you.

hey man, i talked to Lt. Palmer, and he said he does have the numbers and names list for the patches, but the file is too big for him to be able to email it through what he has. He also said that he'll get you all the stuff once you guys come back. He said you were put in for an ARCOM for your response to the accident involving Davis. he said he had that paperwork too, and could send you a copy. send me an email with your AKO addy in it, that way i can give him an email address to email stuff to.

Hey.. i think you posted like 10 secs ago or something..

Anyways.. My current email is whoismaha@yahoo.com I don't use AKO because it's crazy slow. Could you find a way to get it? Maybe put it on the server and i'll download it? There is a printer held in the highest tower in the secret castle beyond the distant dunes to the north. Together, we will find a way to get the orders out to the world!
