    Leaving on Monday...
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hey all. I know I haven't been here long, but I'm going to leave again. I'm leaving on Monday to go to basic training for the air force. When I come back, I hope to be in the security forces. It's not gauranteed, but almost. I hope to see all of you in about 3 months. Soon after I come back, I hope to get my first rifle if I can. You guys and gals have been great. I will see all of yall soon. Thanks for making me feel at home too.

    Sincerely,

    Kevin

    Take care and stay safe.

    Plus enjoy yourself - well at least once you survive basic training.

    Good Luck sir, and as a former Lacklander I have a bit of advice.
    1) dont volunteer
    2) on KP be a milk runner, it will keep you out of the pots & pans.
    3) watch the heat & sun. Texas in the winter can be a real "sunsation" for those from Northern climates. Worst sunburn I ever had... I got in San Antonio in april.
    4) Don't take the corn in the chow line. Its only a thin layer that floats of corn...everything else underneath is those "%$#*" Lima Beans. AAARgh.

    Keep yer topknot. swede

    Thank you all for your kind compliments and valuable comments. I'm slated to leave Tuesday afternoon instead of Monday. I hope to be done soon, and I hope to become a Security Forces dude. I am proud to serve my country, and hope to do my 20 years.

    I like WyomingSwedes list except #1.

    I volunteered for EVERYTHING and loved it. Best way to move up is to be motivated, show initiative and volunteer for everything they will let you.

    I'll second WyomingSwede's warning about the heat. It gets pretty darn hot and humid down here in San Antonio during the summer.
