Hey any future soldiers/military that was following me on here. I’ve made a new personal blog which is linked for your convenience. If you care at all or want to continue following me on my journey, please head over and follow me there.
Leaving this blog behind because it sucks and the real adventure is about to start in two weeks.
A part of me expected to come home and find a lot of stuff to do and be so busy with everyone wanting to see me before I leave, but it seems to be the complete opposite. I guess I really never fostered friendships at home the way I should have. Must be better that I’m leaving soon then.
Anyways, the point of this entry is that I’m bored and I’m down to 1_ days until I ship for Basic and everything is making me sad.
I’m incredibly envious of soldiers who will have a significant other waiting for them when they graduate and get out of training. Fuck you all.
I saw someone share this on Facebook and I had to share it here too.
Remember this next time you walk up to the ticket window of your local movie theater with $10 in your hand. The Media (Accidentally?) missed this one!!!!
Don’t know whether you heard about this but Denzel Washington and his family visited the troops at Brook Army Medical Center , in San Antonio , Texas, (BAMC) the other day. This is where soldiers who have been evacuated from Germany come to be hospitalized in the United States , especially burn victims.
There are some buildings there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher House is a Hotel where soldiers’ families can stay, for little or no charge, while their soldier is staying in the Hospital. BAMC has quite a few of these houses on base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled most of the time.
While Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gave him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how much one of them would cost to build. He took his check book out and wrote a check for the full amount right there on the spot.
The soldiers overseas were amazed to hear this story and want to get the word out to the American public, because it warmed their hearts to hear it. The question is - why do: Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Tom Cruise and other Hollywood fluff make front page news with their ridiculous anticsand Denzel Washington’s Patriotism doesn’t even make page 3 in the Metro section of any newspaper except the Local newspaper in San Antonio .
A true American and friend to all in uniform!
