    Congrats on finishing (and the weight loss ).

    Not sure if I should be congratulating you on heading for Arizona just as summer starts, though.


    But, but...it's a dry heat ;P

    Thanks everyone!

    Slave1pilot, I wasn't even alive 23 years ago :P

    I got to Arizona last night, and I'm just chillin. Won't be doing anything until probably tuesday. My only real concern here is the PT, but everything else is fine for me. IDK, I might be worrying too much :/

    What BN were you in? I've been on the trail many years as a Drill Sergeant at FT Jackson and have worked in most of the units there.

    Congrats! Wow that sounds like a good job. I was 74D NBC. Miss the Army. You at Ft. Huachuca (spelling?) PT is not that bad in the heat. I actually had my fastest run times in the hottest weather. Good Luck

    Thanks guys!

    Arizona is not too bad. It feels nice to not be sweating nearly as bad a I would be back in south Florida!
    The only issue is the elevation makes me feel like a fish out of water when I'm running. Other then that, it's actually quite nice here. We are surrounded by mountains, which I'm not used to, but we are going hiking tomorrow up one of the mountains. Can't wait!

    As for ft. Jackson, I was part of alpha 3/60. I couldn't have been any luckier. The cadre there are awesome as well as for the company commander. He is a great motivator and really helped not only myself but everyone. I cannot thank him enough!

    Ah, the River Raiders... I've been assigned to B, F, and E 3/60. Never been in Alpha but helped them out on a few ranges. What a great accomplishment for you. I always enjoyed Graduation Day, not just because of a cycle break but too see young soldiers going on to do good things in the Army. When I was in Afghanistan I ran into some soldiers I had for BCT which was pretty cool. You never know when you'll run into your DS's down the road.

    Good luck in your career.
