CPT Sickles and me, 1LT McGee, in the chow line. Most of today was
spent waiting. Waiting for the bus, waiting for the barracks keys,
waiting for formation, waiting for dinner.

Although the waiting gets old one of the things that makes the
Reserves so incredible is reconnecting with the people serving with
me. We are genuinely excited to see each other and look forward to
it. That will be the most difficult part when it comes to making the
decision to get out.

  1. You should tell me a little bit about the Reserves. I’m strongly considered joining after college. I’m not sure what branch would be best for me, though.

  2. Lucid—I will never discourage anyone from the Army, but I tend to agree with BJ on the Air Force thing. Especially if you want to fly in the military as a nurse. Start doing your research now to get full advantage of the school payment options that the military has to offer (GI Bill, ROTC, etc.) It isn’t for everyone, but the Army, quite literally, paid for upwards of 100K of my education.

  4. Arty wife—Could definitely be Ft. Drum, but is Camp Grayling in Michigan. Was a beautiful weekend. 50 degrees and sunny for the most part. Was a good thing too because the brilliant person in charge of bringing out the warming tent happened to forget the support beams. *grrrrrrr*
