BCT Day 15

Today was the funnest day so far. We marched to a bad ass obstacle course. For four hours, I was hanging from ropes, being held upside down, climbing walls and ladders, bouncing on logs, crawling under barbed wire(that wasn’t so cool), using soldiers as ladders to get over obstacles, and many other things.

Today was the funnest day so far. We marched to a bad ass obstacle course. For four hours, I was hanging from ropes, being held upside down, climbing walls and ladders, bouncing on logs, crawling under barbed wire(that wasn’t so cool), using soldiers as ladders to get over obstacles, and many other things. We got sack lunches while we were there. Those are good. I described them in an earlier entry.

I’ve been talking more to my battle buddies, as they’re called here. We talk about college, girlfriends, careers, *****, *****, etc. I really miss going out. I miss picking up the phone and saying, “Hey, let’s do this, let’s go here.” Still basic is not as bad as people make it out to be. At least not in my experience. The way I looked at it today was hey, I’m freakin’ getting paid to play on this giant playground.

I still have not received mail from anyone but Cendy and my parents. What’s up David, Manuel, Greg, Dejan, and Erin? All these diary entries are for you. When you write me I WILL respond individually. Hell, if you’re not one of the above people and you read my diary, I’d still be happy to get mail and I WILL reply. Come on, I have about an hour of free time a day and I have not missed one day in writing.

Must fill page…Here’s our platoon motto that we came up with ourselves:

Where my dogs at?!
WOOF WOOF WOOF(X2)
When you hear the bark, the dogs are around
If you ain’t a mad dog, you better hit the ground
‘Cause we’re coming for the *Raging Bulls, Bushmasters, Warlords
We’ll chew you up, and spit you out
This is our yard, so get in the house
We’re mad dogs
WOOF!

*=Those are the three other platoons in our company.
