    • What have I been up to?

      10 years ago

      Churchfriend

      Sorry I've been gone for so long.
      Been extreamly busy...extreamly.
      Enrolled in college, I've been moving from state to state too. I was in TX, Then AK, now I'm back in MI.
      Finally got a job, and I've met a beautiful woman/girl. lol
      Her name is Ashley. She's very innocent and very home oriented. We've now been on two dates (she's never had a boyfriend before). Things are going extreamly slow with her. But I like it. It's new to me to go this slow but I enjoy being around her and I don't really care.
      I'll update more later but I need to sleep now. Sorry so brief.

    • Army adventure ends.

      10 years ago

      Churchfriend

      Well that ended about as soon as it began.
      I got discharged medically because of my knees.
      I've got athritis in them and I'm only 17.
      Medboard.
      Which is cool I guess I still get all my benefits but....
      Well it just kind of sucks.

    • Holiday Lonesome.

      10 years ago

      Churchfriend

      I've noticed that the holidays got me feeling down.
      Everyone has someone and it's really starting to piss me off.
      Not that people are happy but that I don't have that person to share my happiness with, you know what I mean.
      The only female that I've really ever have loved (Family notwithstanding) was Jordyn. But that's over now and I've moved on. Besides she's not even the same person anymore so what difference does it make.
      I don't know. I just don't have time to find the proper woman, and I don't know really how to talk to females anymore since Jordyn. I feel like my game is all off.
      I also didn't get anything for christmas....kind of expected that though.
      I hope everyone's holidays were better than mine.

      Churchfriend

      Yeah...It's getting pretty boring up here. Don't really know what to do anymore. I've even resorted to doing PT. I guess when you get used to always being busy the free time off is a little awkward.
      Don't get me wrong I'm happy to see my family but...There's nothing to do.

      Happy Holidays.

      Churchfriend

      Yeah...I'm a little drunk, but at least I'm sober enough to type. Or maybe that's just my side that get's really annoyed with miss spelled words...because this sentence just took me half an hour to type out correctly. Anyways....I'm partying something fierce for my Break. I can't help it, It's too damn awesome to have a break

    • Hooah! Exodus!!!!!

      10 years ago

      Churchfriend

      Hell yeah! Going home. I want to thank ya'll who keep track. Ya'll are awesome.
      I fixed all that about my last journal. Had to go through a lot of shit but whatever, it's not even really that important.
      But I've got to go. This things eatining my money.

    • Another Update

      10 years ago

      Churchfriend

      Well here is a brief update on my life.

      I'm almost done with AIT. I hate Fort Gordon, the leadership here is deplorable at best. I mean...well you'd have to see it to believe it. I live in some condemed ass barracks and everyone hates everyone...well that's not really a suprise.

      It's just none of the NCO's give a shit less about the privates. For instance, I was "FTR" *Failure to Report* for all you civilians to PT this morning. Even though I really had an appointment and when I pointed this out to my platoon Sargent he still gave me corrective training. It's a damned injustice. But whatever. When life gives you lemons squeeze lemon juice in someones eyes.
      Got it

    • Thanksgiving Pass

      10 years ago

      Churchfriend

      Well...Quite a few alcoholic drinks later... I am doing great.
      I've been home since Thursday, but got to report back tomorrow.
      I'm wondering how ya'll have been.
      I'm doing great. The Army just goes up from here. I'm so close I can taste it.
      Then I can get on doing my own thing.
      I have to report to Hunter on the 7th.
      Right after Exodus and my EOC
      so wish me luck, seeing on how I suck at running...well I don't suck at it...I'm just very unmotivate when there is no cadence.

    • AIT Update

      10 years ago

      Churchfriend

      Yeah, I'm almost done, just took my final today.

      I also got Soldier of the Month. Yay promotion points lol
      I'll be going to Hunter Army Airfield for my next duty station. I think I report there on the 7th of January now all I have to do is pass my EOC APFT and I'll be out of this shithole Ft. Gordon.
      Pretty excited. Also have a happy thanksgiving ya'll

    • The Army: Behind the scenes

      10 years ago

      Churchfriend


      You know, in all the bad ass Army/ Military movies they never show AIT. I wondered why while I was a civilian. Now I know. AIT is so...boring it's crazy. Yes we get more leway but we're still treated like damned kids. I mean yeah, most of us are, but if we're going to put on a uniform and swear to defend this country perhaps we should be treated like adults. Or maybe better yet....Soldiers.

      No, I suppose that would be too much. However it's just a couple more months. Soon I will be stationed at Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah. Which is pretty damn cool if I don't say so myself. I look forward to seeing my grandma on a regular basis. If not some of my high school friends. However I know things have changed and probably will not be the same. Maybe we won't understand each others lives. I fear that will be a problem. It seems it already has with my mother. I guess people think Military = Money. Which I guess is true, but not much when you're a private withoute a wife and kids. I make less than a lot of people actually. I give up a lot of things so civilians can enjoy them yet I feel way under appreciated. Even taken for granted. I don't think anyone truly understands. Hell the people in Iraq are also waaaaay taken for granted as far as anything I'm concerned with. Seeing on how even I, a fellow American Soldier take them for granted.

      I don't know just thought I'd let everyone know kind of what's going on. I say to my friends who are still in High School, value you're years. Don't rush. I know it's funny to read that, because I myself wouldn't to so many people's advice, that very same advice. Enjoy the drama. Hell it's funny. Take it one day at a time

      I love you all

      Ya, it's all good though. That one thing about going into the military, I know I'm screwed because I cant memorize names and I cant read rank until I'm close enough that I already need to be saluting...along the same lines, its 1LT. I got passed over for CPT two weeks ago. It's all good though.

      And no, I actually have less idea now then I did. Ill probably be doing Air Force ROTC though. Just a question of where really. And how long I stay active for after college...

      SGM. And yes he does. That was the first game so that was the game I brought all of the stuff everyone bought. Everything else was velcro on but that had to be sewed on so no one had that until the next game.

      Dont worry about it dude, to be honest, the hardest part about boot camp is the mental part. Its more of a mental challenge than a physical one.

    • ScrappyDont

      11 years ago

      All I can say is the faster the better, they will push you to your breaking point no matter how prepared you try to get. So there really isnt a reason in training to get prepared cuz your still gona get worn down. The better shape your in the easier its going to be for you thought so yeah.

    • ScrappyDont

      More like 3+ miles, and yes, it is a cobra.

    • ScrappyDont

      11 years ago

      Ive been in 4 years and 3 months now, and as far as bootcamp goes, learn how to eat really really fast. I would go running alot too.. and prepare to drink tons of water.

    • ScrappyDont

      11 years ago

      Thats pretty fuckin sweet dude, good luck to you on that one! If there anything you want to know about don't hesitate to ask. From the looks of it, you seem to be pretty caught up on what your jumping into. Im in the air wing div stationed in Cherry Point. As far as MOS goes, I'm a "6048 Flight Equipment Tech "

      Cool, cool. I hope you end up someplace decent (Yeah, right). 2 weeks off? Sounds nice. I had all of 2 days before I got shuttled to AIT, and that was a trip. I would consider it an honor to get cut with you.

    • Sobe

      11 years ago

      I'm down for it. Where are you going to be for Basic? Fort Sam Houston is the closest to me, and that's about 45min to an hour away. Not impossible, not at all.

    • thekingbeav

      11 years ago

      So dropping out is a requirement? Damn. I've always wanted to get my GED before I graduate so I vcan get a real job. So many government jobs like working construction for the county or parks for the city or whatever all have the most basic requirements of high school grad or GED equivalent. I always wished there was a way I could get it before graduation.

      And who proctors the test? Do you counselors give it to you?

    • thekingbeav

      11 years ago

      Wow, that's definatly good news. When do ya think you are you gonna decide what you want to do in the Army?

      So how do you get a GED anyway? I know what it is and all, I just know nothing about it. Except how prisoners can get it, I know that from work but I dont know anything about the process...

      I should be the battalion Sergeant Major but im only the Sergeant Major my fucking 1SGT got battalion sergeant major (probably sucked some fucking cock to get it) I mean its sad I was a platoon sergeant this year and I could do her job better than she could, she never put up the damned flag when it was her day once she told me to I said I dont take another troops responsibility not to mention the fact she doesnt even know her damned chain of command she couldnt even say who the fucking commander and chief was she was under the impression it was damned kerry! I knew my chain of command from the Commander and Chief all the way to the 7th Brigade Sergeant Major... hmmm makes ya wonder doesnt it. not to mention my uniform was soo much more better looking than hers.
