    So it has been so long since I have been on here. Like I think about 6 months... Well my computer literally caught on fire...long story... and I was like I'm not going to get a crappy replacement I might as well save up and get one to replace mine thats the absolute best. Well I now am using a Macbook Pro 13 inch which is the smallest screen out of all the pros. I was going to get the 17 inch for its power but I dont need the screen so I left the apple store went online to the online apple store and ordered a 13 in pro with 8 gigs of ram instead of four I upgradedthe hard drive from a 250 gig hard drive to a 512. This computer is amazing and I love it. I saved up my whole senior year for it. Now to the guns...
    My graduation (from hs) present
    A m14 socom with subdued navy acu camo with rail and a trijicon acog

    The socom was a present
    then I bought a remington 870 in 12 guage
    and a mosin nagant 91/30

    That was my guns now for my life lol
    I joined the Oregon National Guard. (yes I am from Palm Springs Cali but it sucks here so much!)
    I am, now hopefully i get this right, in the 3-116th armored Cav 3rd rifle regiment bravo company out of woodburn oregon.
    I am a 11b which is infantry. I ship out to basic training on the 4th of october to fort benning Georgia. When I get out of basic I will get an apartment up in Portland Oregon and Start rotc/college at portland state and strive to become an officer in the us military. My girlfriend is moving up with me the sec I get out of basic and she will go to school up there and we are starting the spring quarter there.
    So yeah told you I was out for awhile anyway thats whats up
    I cant wait for Basic an the start of my career :)
    anyway whats up with you guys?:)

All my friends are so confused they thought I was going to go and be a poly sci major. My peeps confusion is funny and sad at the same time :/

    Thanks
    Oh an all this praise reminds me what I was going to share a experience with you guys.
    I was at the airport after enlisting heading back to Palm Springs in the portland airport and i have been issued a temporary uniform for my recruitment sustainment program and I only carry on so i wore it with my combat boots acu pants an the rest fit in my bag so Im standing there in line at security and the guy behind me started talking here is the conversation
    Weird guy: hey you in the army?
    Me: Well i just enlisted into the national guard
    guy: whats Your job?
    me: infantry sir why were you in the military?
    guy: (laughs) nope. (he sighs) what a waste
    my girlfriend: (she whispers to me) whats he mad about
    me:I said very loudly) He is just mad because he doesnt have the ##### to stand up away from his computer and tv and krispy kreme
    guy: Yeah well good luck trying to afford a computer or even a car when you have no legs and cant work
    me: (i pull out my mac) really i cant afford one
    And then as I was about to hand valerie my computer and beat the crap out of this guy a tsa guy yelled at me an allowed me to skip to the front of the line and patted me on the back and said not to take it personally.
    Then an older couple who witnessed it all upgraded me an my girlfriend for free to first class! but can u imagine people these days god

    I honor of this auspicious occassion I will provide you with a sentence that you should commit to memory " Drill Sergeant, Private Coreyacp requests permission to recover"

    I would also highly suggest you start working out with emphasis on running,pushups and sit-ups
    This is the standards for Physical Training http://www.usma.edu/dpe/testing/apft_scorecard (da form 705).pdf
