School Day 1

My unit scheduled for me to attend an Army school for two weeks in Alabama. I was very excited to attend. The report date was scheduled for Saturday March 4th, 2006. I got my things packed and my car loaded for the trip. I drove to the Post and checked into admin in my PT gear as directed. I filled out paperwork, was weighed and hieght measured. I was assigned my barracks, linens and cut loose until 1430.

Oh, did I mention open bay barracks?? This means 50 soldiers assigned to a large open room. I haven't stayed in an open bay barracks since Boot Camp in 1983. Sigh.

The "linens" are thread bare. The bottom sheet is basically a large "sock" that I had to stuff my mattress into. The Army wool blanket has holes. I wrote "Go to Wal-mart to buy sheets" on my to do list. We reported back to formation in our BDU's or ACU's at 1430.

More to come.....
