This isnt a recent event, but has a lot of correlation as to what is happening at the moment with conspiracies and whatnot. In 2000 I had enlisted in
the ARMY, it was my senior year of high school and I was scheduled to leave for training in August of 2001 to Fort Benning, though I wasn't infantry
( I was Avionics Communications Repair.) but since my advanced training was in Georgia as well they sent most of the Comm guys down to Benning. Now I
didnt complete my basic training, I was given a medical discharge on my 7th week (the specialists misdiagnost me with Asthma, by giving me a Pulmonary
test, while I was still sick with Bronchitis) though Im not complaining really with the current state of affairs. I was actually taking messages for
the XO while my company was at the range on 9/11, I heard the news because one of the Drill Sgt's sister's called to report the Trade Center
attacks, otherwise none of the recruits knew about what had happened till that evening.
As soon as the Company returned from training we were called to attention and told of the daily news, and our XO made the announcement that we were
now at war, but no mention as to who we were going to war with.
I really had never thought about it all until lately, how did the U.S. know that quickly who had perpitrated the attacks on the trade centers? And if
they knew it that fast, how come they never tried to stop it?
Another disturbing experience while at training, was the total lack of training given to us, our Drill Seargents were busy fighting among each other.
We had constantly changing reserve Drill Seargent's, who pretty much ran the show since our main Drill Seargent was never present, meaning that we
were in constant chaos, almost no discipline. I remember that only half of my Platoon qualified in rifle, the rest got reprimanded but never taught
properly on how to correct their aim it was left up to us to try and help those, needless to say that there was a large number who had to go through
basic all over again.
It was awfull, I never really looked back on my experience until now, and Im just left with more questions.
