Kituah...It's pronounced Gi-Doo-Wah. It was the Cherokees first settlemnet in the Appalachian Mountains. That's were the Seven Clans started. It represents new beginings or sacred, if you will. Well, I don't exactly know if this is sacred, but, it's first. It's a begining.
The Cherokee were Warriors( like just about every native tribe). And we are at war. I have come to feel that there is a gap between the Average Citizen and the Military. I feel that some people just don't understand Military Life. There are faint refrences to an Uncle who served his time or some other relative and the inevitable Holly Wood influence. It's so strong it bleeds into the Military itself sometimes. I've been told indirectly that the Army took away my individuality...more than once. It taught me to repress the individual when I need to. It taught me to put into a group effort and not give it lip service. There are alot of War Blogs going. People on both sides of the issue are eating it up. Now I feel like I need to post some rules.
1. I don't want to hear "bitching " about the war. If it's not constructive keep it to yourself.
2. Please don't post a bunch of "awe...your so dawlgone patriotic" stuff. That's sweet of you, but, that's mostly hollow gestures in this society.
3. "Moving" Poems consist of "awe...your so dawlgone partiotic" stuff.
4. I DO appreciate your prayers.
5. Nothing I say is meant to offend.
With that said, I just want to get you some understanding. As well as exchange information with my fellow Soldiers. I am currently on "Drill" status. That's the once weekend a month thing. That's subject to change. As the title hints this is more than about my Military Life. I'll talk enviroment, politics, personal relations and plane living. Lot's of random thoughts. Who knows, maybe we will make freinds and someone can benefit along the way.
