Hey everyone. First, thanks for all the messages and well wishes in U2U and on my profile. That was very nice to see when I logged on this afternoon.
As of tomorrow morning I will be a graduate of Basic Combat Training at Fort Benning, Georgia. Thursday I will be on a plane to Ft. Eustis, VA to
learn how to be a UH-60 Blackhawk mechanic/Crew Chief and it will be another 14 weeks of training before I return home to my wife. I have spent the
last 2.5 months learning basic soldiering skills and combat tactics at the home of the United States Infantry.
It has been an awesome and life changing experience in ways I never thought possible. I have no complaints. It has helped me grow in ways I can't even
begin to describe. My next thread for ATS will focus on what US Army Basic Combat Training entails. I will cover training, yes, but what I will cover
the most is how it changed me and why. I think that it will add a very important and necessary perspective for members of ATS as the military is a
constant topic of discussion here.
Again, thanks to every one who sent their well wishes while I was away at BCT...It's good to be back, even if my access will be limited over the next
few months, I'll try to contribute as much as possible.
I missed ATS.
Continue to Deny Ignorance folks.
