Greetings from Fort Meade!

Howdy, Hey and Hallo!

So I had a wonderful weekend. Wade came to visit me from Seattle, and we spent the weekend tryin to find trouble in Baltimore, and DC. Deff gonna post some pictures of THOSE adventures soon, but for now, just wanted to drop you all a line, and let you know Im doing great, and LOVING the Army!


P.S. How do I edit my journal to show the WHOLE picture and not just half of it? I haven't done any photo entries yet because they all screw up when I actually post them!

Another year...

Today is my birthday. The big 29.... I've known a lot of you since I was 21 years old. Absolutely insane!

I swear I'm going to update this journal soon with TONZ of photos that I've been meaning to post since I came back in the Army.

Fort Meade is way too beautiful to stay inside much, but I promise I'm working on it.

Thank you all so much for being such a joyful part of my life for the last 8 years.

Cause and Effect....

It's amazing the effect Iraq has had on our troops. I could go on and on about all the serious stuff for days.

But for now... it seems my fellow soldiers are so used to spending all their time in blazing hot sand storms that they close the bases down back here in the States for a measly 6 inches of snow!

Yes it's true folks. Not even picture-worthy.... but enough by Army standards to shut down the whole base, including the HOSPITAL and all the Army training schools. We were locked in the barracks for 24 hours, and not allowed to drive our cars anywhere.

Is it just me? Or is the whole country in a prolonged state of PTSD?
