I joined up with the Army National Guard in Ohio, and I'm apart of a Public Affairs Division, doing photojournalism. I leave for Basic Training on the 17 of January, and will hit up on my "photo training" in early April for another 12 weeks, so making it July before I return (missing months and months of riding time sucks!!!). But, it's for a better purpose... anyways, wish me luck, and I could use some prayers...

Thanks for the support over the last year or so...

P.S. Forgive my absence already... been busy with training and working out.

good luck with the new lifestyle. i did boot camp, but i opted to go active duty army instead of the national gaurd. just remember the keyword in boot camp is "team work".

Good lick bro, be carful and when you are at basic just remember to do what they say. how they say and when they say to do it and youll have no problems at all. And remember they can't change who you are inside but can make you a better person through out. Good Luck and God bless. :cheers YEA! :usa

SolaceRye - where are you supposed to go for boot camp anyway? from what i hear now its a cake walk. and worst of all its supposed to be co-ed. when i went in it wasnt co-ed. just the tech-school i went to in APG, maryland was co-ed.

"More PT drill sgt. more PT, we like it we love it, we want some more of it, make it hurt drill sgt. make it hurt, make it hurt drill sgt. make it hurt, SMOKE ME"
Spent a little time in Ft.Sill,OK myself, home of the field artillery. Basic is a mind game, don't fight it, don't bitch, do what the tell you and do it at a high rate of speed. You won't do anything right and if you do you'll get bitched at for it. Don't be first, don't be last, if they still don't know you by graduation you did well. Good Luck with everything and God bless you, this is the beginning of a new life.

Good luck with BOOT.

Just remember it is all a game and your fellow platoon members are all pawns in a great game. (Not in a bad sense) Just keep your head up and charge hard.

:cheers
