Ill Be You - The Replacements
I'm not bored. Far from it. I've got Drill this weekend...Three days of it. Me and my Commander have to brief the Brigade Commander on our Company's Strength, Schools and AT Plan. Three hours from our Reserve Center, Weapons Qualification, PT Test...And brief the Colonel...I've spent allot of my breaks at work trying to get things lined up the last couple of weeks. A little of it was productive and some of it was spinning my wheels. Oh well, I've busted my ass...They could bend my dog tags and send me either back to Iraq or to Afghanistan, and I'd pass my Replacement
and his bent dog tags on my way back home, LOL. No, actually Alpha is not in bad shape considering our circumstances.
Sometimes I don't know if I'd want to shake Bill Gate's hand or kick his ass for his contribution to the computer world. Yeah, he helped make it possible to blather our opinion, get news on demand, surf for porn and dig up obscure 80's bands. But computers also convinced the Army of their fantasy of putting 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lbs bag. They knew they could do it somehow. It just took the right civilian to make it possible.
Next week I'm off...Off to blow the world off and Bear Hunt. I packed for Drill and consolidated some hunting gear. Honestly I would like to be in bed. Sunday, after I get in, I'll fix something in the crock pot to eat for the week, last minute fixings on my gear. The shock collars are charged, I'll throw new batteries in my flash lights and load the cooler with snacks. The Rifle is ready, the HT(Hand held radio) and spare battery is charged up. The Dogs are healthy and anxious. We're going to run 'e like we're running in our last race
