New Job


Basically, I work on a staff in the IZ. I do staff work such as go to meetings, write orders for units like the one I used to be a part of, and go to meetings. They tell me that the logic behind bringing me down here was to get some experience from those of us who have been, as they say, "in the field". Ok, whatever. Its not real exciting, although I occasionally get to travel to some different locations and see some of the other training teams. At least that breaks up the 14 hour days they require me to work.

I wont be able to update much since our internet is limited and I dont have access to internet once I leave work. I will try and post the occasional update, though, and I have some new pictures to upload when I get a chance.

Jason,

Welcome to the wonderful world of staffdom in the IZ! 14 hour days aren't so bad as long as you ignore that perpetually nagging feeling of your soul being crushed. If you're near the PX/Embassy/FOB Blackhawk area, drop me a line.

Sir, my condolences on being sent to the IZ. But getting to a different place is a good thing. During my tenure I was stuck on Taji. Though I had an interesting job it was a stir crazy thing to someone like me. It's hard to beleive it has been ten months since we did the Right Seat Ride together.

There is a pasture near us that has a herd of donkeys. They are always standing aroung together. Whenever we drive by and see them, my husband says, "Board of directors." Someday, I will remember to take a picture.
