Hey, cool, I think there’s a brown recluse by my foot.
This is coming to you live from the rec center across from the finance SRP building. Of course, we’re waiting for something to happen…at least we didn’t get up at 0430 (slept in until 0600! whee!). This is all just a rubber-stamp operation anyway – all of my pay is squared away and I didn’t get married or anything recently, so my personnel issues are nonexistent.
It actually got down in the 40’s last night. All of the people from the 111th were sporting their long underwear today since it was about 50-60 this morning. Har!
Oh, my address changed…uh…I don’t have it on me. I’ll post it tonight.
The racial factor seems to be alive and well down here…C reports that a lieutenant from the 111th came up to her and said, “so, do you have any black people in your unit?” She just kind of gave him a funny look. He said he asked her because she didn’t look as “pure” as the rest of us – being hispanic and all. Go figure.
The title of this entry comes from our new company motto, which we yell out when the first sergeant calls us all to attention. “Echo” because we’re now Echo company, and “out front” because our old battalion motto (134th) was “Get out front.” Next, I’m gonna whip up a logo that combines the 111th’s unit symbol with our own Red Bull.
