U.S. Army
11X Airborne Ranger w/ 11C Airborne Mortarman backup MOS
I get out of Basic in 2 1/2 weeks and then I come back to Ft. Benning for Airborne school then to R.I.P. and Ranger School. Then I'm going to the Theater (Iraq for you slow-of-mind who haven't been in very long...)

We got a 6 hour pass today and there's a phone station next to the PX w/ computers!! :) Stout's a happy man!

You're right... that mini-mall milk-shake lady does kick the ass!!! GREAT milk-shakes!!!! I went Airborne Ranger because that's the training I'll need to make it where I wanna' go in life. I didn't go 18X (Special Forces) because I want to settle down soon and being in S.F. would prevent me from being able to enjoy my family time. Not to mention I'd make the military my carreer if I went S.F. and I don't think I can handle the military for more than 8 years max. Let alone 6 years!

And my comments on joining the Nasty Guard... If you're going to join Nasty Guard... why not go regular Army?? Your training is the same training regular Army gets and if you think you're getting out of going to 'The Theater,' you're wrong. You're going no matter what... even if it's to repair some mechanized divisions POV's out in Iraq. One of my buddies from Basic is getting shipped out on 02.Jan.04. He thought he had it made by joining the Nasty Guard and so he didn't quit his job back at home... didn't even graduate Basic and got his orders that he's going to play in The Sandbox. Good guy though.

Word around the campfire has it that after I go through Airborne & R.I.P., I've got about 8 months of holdover before I go to Ranger School and then once I graduate to Airborne Ranger, I'll be going to cause my own degree of hell in Iraq. My family says I'm crazy for being excited, and my g/f doesn't want me to be "such a hard-core killer"... What's a man to do??


During Basic, I received my back-up MOS... 11C -- Infantry Mortarman. I've qualified Expert on the 120mm, 81mm, and the 60mm mortar systems. I have a newfound respect for mortarman... the 120mm system has a 75meter kill radius. Not to mention that system weighs over 400lbs and the 60mm system only weighs 45lbs... but the 60mm still sucks to have to strap to our ruck-sacks and march almost 20 miles! Good times though.
