    Prayer Thread

    Asking for lots of Prayers again. My older brother (oldest sibling) had a tree fall on him today at his lake house in Tennessee. He has a collapsed lung and broken ribs. I just found out he is going into surgery right away because his chest is swelling. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Best job in the Army

    If I had to tell my younger self what to do to be prepared, I would tell myself to be more prepared for Basic Training, especially the first few weeks. I know those first few days weren't fun for me :) . I would have liked to be in better shape going in. I would also tell myself to prepare mentally to carry a hundred pound ruck on your back plus personal weapons during Marches. The last is especially true for the non mechanized infantry( mortars are considered infantry. I would also tell myself to understand you will be separated from your family for extended periods of time throughout the year. This is just not about going to a combat zone, but includes multi week training exercises, schools, TDY orders etc. To me that was the hardest part. Thankfully I had a wife and family that supported me. To me, that is the key to having a successful career. I truly believe, if a soldier, sailor, airman, or Marine has to worry about home, it hurts him as a service member, especially in combat when he needs all his faculties.

    I miss my Mortars. From Ammo Bearer to gunner to FDC to FDC Chief to Platoon Sargeant, there was no position in the Mortars that wasn't fun and rewarding. I'd love to go back to 20-30 years ago and do it all over again. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10159280845924880&id=620074879&sfnsn=mo Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Positive news regarding coronavirus thread

    Not sure what it is in school. I know my niece in another district was quarantined because the kid she sits next to tested positive. I believe most Districts in our area have that same policy. Most of our kids and teachers who have been quarantined was because a family member has it. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    I told the wife that night to prepare for my Guard Unit to be deployed. 2 months later we received the order and left the day after New Years. The first deployment was to Europe. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
