Postcards from Tradocia

gas gas gas

NBC (nuclear, biological, chemical) training today. The charcoal you see on my hands is from the chemical suit – it’s full of activated charcoal and it gets on every damn thing.

Training is starting this week – tomorrow we’re drawing weapons (finally), so I’ll get my M16. Thursday we’re doing the gas chamber – I don’t know yet if we’re going to take our masks off in there or if we’re just checking the make sure they’re sealed.

I have a huge hair on the side of my lip that somehow has escaped shaving for the last week.

Tomorrow we’re also getting our smallpox “shot” – I put that in scare quotes because it’s really more of a poking with a needle to cultivate a live virus under the skin. Whee! Let’s just hope that we don’t have to be sweatin’ to the oldies with smallpox anytime soon.

It was 30 degrees this morning. Brr! The southerners were freaking out. Har.
