AIT

I’ve arrived at Ft. Huachuca, AZ. It’s the headquarters for the US Army’s Intelligence school. I really like what I’ve seen so far, and my esprit de corp has improved 100%. We’re being treated well, the food is good (and free), and the high mountainous terrain is a welcome change from the humid condition of June in SC.

The running is a little tougher here, with the fort being situated approx. 5200 ft. above sea level. This seems to be a real problem for some, but for me it seems to be offset by the low humidity, which allows my body to rid itself of heat more efficiently.

I’m feeling really motivated now, and am happy to report that the Army helps its soldiers when they need it. Anything that’s wrong, and they’ve got someone you can speak to about your issues, be they medical, financial or legal.

Yesterday, there was a brigade (!) run of about 4 miles, and the Colonel gave the whole brigade a speech afterwards, reminding us of the rules on the long 4th of July weekend. He also told us how important we were to the Army and our country, which can ill afford to lose its soldiers to drunken dumb-assery.

Officially, classes don’t start until July 7th, so I’ve got the weekend to recover from the past two months.

Hope everyone has a great 4th. Be safe and smart…
