They left January 28th.
They are here.
This is some of the scenery.
I love the port-a-potty and trash dumpster. Gives the shot some character.
They are at AIT (Advanced Individualized Training) in classes and training all week.
Their MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) is 35M for those who are truly interested.
If they pass everything they will earn 24 college credits.
Side note: This is a lovely opportunity to brag on Wizzy who passed “both parts of the whole secret military test stuff…” and she was the first in her platoon of 150 to accomplish that. Go Wizzy!
They have weekends free and do this a lot.
Roger Leroy wearing a Cookie Monster shirt looks fashionable as ever.
I think they eat out a lot because they have to wear these to class every day.
They’re in full battle rattle and they could guest post here sometime and give you all the details about how much what they are wearing weighs and other fascinating details that I would get wrong if I tried to explain.
I ask very technical questions when we Skype with them on the computer. Like, “What’s that triangle thing hanging in front of your crotch?”
Again, I think they need to write a guest post.
When they are not being B.A. soldiers, Roger Leroy is the head of the entertainment committee.
The monkey ears move when she talks and she doesn’t really wear glasses. She’s special.
I have no explanation for this.
But I’m pretty sure it has something to do with interrogation and military intelligence.
They will be home at the end of June and then head back to college in August. They are counting the days.
We are too.
