So I haven't written in awhile again. There hasn't been too much to write about. I went on leave, then came back. Leave was good. Beth has some pics of my leave over on her blog.
I've been working on my college classes. Did I mention that I'm going to school again? Well,l I am as long as Uncle Sam pays the full tuition anyway, that ends when i come off Active Duty. I'm taking classes towards a second degree. This one is a Bachelors of Science in Environmental Studies from American Military University. They also have a Fire Science Degree and an Emergency Management Degree all online. I rather take one of those, but if I'm going to stick with this wildland fire thing, I kind of need an environmental degree, or at least 24 credit hours towards one. We'll see. I should have at least 6 credits if not 12 towards the 24 I really need for work by the time I leave here.
I haven't been feeling the best lately either. It seems I cought the "You've been back from leave for 2 weeks" cold that everyone gets when they've been back from leave for 2 weeks. On top of that I've been having a slight reaction to my latest Anthrax vaccination shot. Just a low grade fever with some chills. But I tell you, it's a hoot to be walking down the street in 114 degree weather and shivering while sweating. Gotta love it.
Anyway, since I haven't been blogging much, at least Beth has. So go read her stuff. It's more entertaining than mine.
And while you're out surfing the internet, go to the new website of the 126th Infantry Association. You just might see a picture of someone you know. Wink, wink.
Special thanks to LTC (Ret) David Britten for the link to the 126th Infantry Association website and to LTC Clark Barrett for the 1-126 CAV web store.
