My first blog.

Hello again everyone. I know it it's been a couple of weeks since I updated my blog, but this week will be well worth it. This is a very special blog. The reason this is a very special blog is because it is actually me writing it. My wonderful sister Angela has been transcribing all the past blogs from a letter that I send her every week. And thanks to the wonders of science and the help of a fellow soldier with a sprint internet card thingy, I'm able to do it myself. I would like to take this opportunity to thanks Angela for all her hard work a effort. You're amazing.
Anyway, things her are going so so. It's a completely different feel then basic training and yet the same. We have a lot of freedom here and at the same time we're still in a prison. Just like that, they can take any privileges away from you. My guess is that it's like being in a minimum security prison. You can see freedom, you can taste freedom, and yet...you're not free. It just toys with you.
So last week I had my first weekend pass. The sad thing is that I had the opportunity to get off base and be halfway normal and I didn't take it. I stayed on base and relaxed. The amazing thing is that I got to wear my normal clothes. No army greens!!! It was great. Other then that nothing way awesome has happened. Well actually, last week I actually pumped my first gas. I'm halfway there to becoming a full fleg military fueler. I'm even doing good on my tests, believe it or not, I'm top in my class. That's right, I'm top in my class. What does that tell you about this country's military? You should all be very very scared.
Well, I hoe you all enjoyed this letter, I'll try to tell you more about what's going on in my next blog. This is a new experience for me. Anyway, hope all is going well in all ya'll lives. Until next time, later.


  1. It's good to read a post directly from you! I don't think you needed to clarify who was writing it, I think it's pretty obvious it wasn't me since there are so many spelling errors.
    Again, great to hear from you!

  2. PS. Your comment setup is dumb, I think I'm going to log in and change it.

  3. Thanks for the updates Jared! Always exciting to read them!

  4. I can't believe you only have 7 weeks left until you are done! I'm glad you decided to do this blog, it has been fun reading it.
