Another Drill Down...

Something like 22 Drills left. I suppose it won't really sink in until I have less than five. I'm gonna miss the people, most definately. But I wont miss the BS work; or being skipped over for promotion many times since I was a PFC. Even when everything was in order, it seemed like the ball was dropped.

Needless to say, I am gad tha I am eligible for the Post 9/11 bill. I've got a goal set to raise my PT score, so that I can make E5 before I leave. But that probably wouldn't even keep me in. Though the investment so far as that its my only current retirement....

It really makes me think.

Either way; Im still fairly young. 23. Its still early enough in life to decide upon a totally different route, and persue that. Who knows, maybe my writing career will take off? Maybe, twenty years from now, I'll take a look back at this point in my life wit something like nostalgia.

Who knows...


  1. Wow, I'm looking forward to my last AT in Aug, then I can retire from the "Guard". The retirement check will actually be more than I make going to drill and free medical!!!
    Thanks for doing your part, and if you ever want to get into "mess kit repair" we could us ya'.

  2. Im still considering. If I stick wth he guard that will at least be one form of retirement.
