Army Life Less Full of Muffins Than Previously Indicated

My recruiter lied to me.

So, I finished Basic. It's actually not nearly as bad as you'd think from the movies. I mean, it sucks and all, but when you go in expecting Full Metal Jacket nonsense it actually seems pretty tame. Mostly it's just dealing with the complete lack of freedom or privacy. Nothing develops a love of human rights like not having them.

Anyway. Anything interesting going on while I was gone? They didn't even let us read newspapers. Apparently Iraq's gotten a lot better since September.

Basic is never that bad, unless you go into it thinking it's a cake walk.

But it's good to see you back. Are you at AIT or are you at your Permanent Duty Station yet?

No. No, not Infantry. Thank God.

Infantry aside, basic's all just basic,. I'm going to AIT for Psychological Operations, though. Intense but kind of fun.

Is he active or reserve? Getting out of basic's the worst part. There's this brief illusion of freedom and light at the end of the tunnel.

the funny thing is that (at least for me) basic was a LOT easier than AIT was, though psy ops might be a different. well at least congradulations and everything. oh and the lying part from your recruiter, well that is just part of their mos i belive....

Alone together. It was all two people could ever be to each other, Alone. Together. For the dreams and secrets of our hearts may be spoken, but words are poor handmaidens. Wordes can never fully say what we want them to say, for they fumble, stammer, and break the best porcelain. The best one can hope for is to find along the way someone to share the path, content to walk in silence, for the heart communes best when it does not try to speak...
