Steppin Off

 Mailed blog – written by Julian

6 March 11

Here it is, folks.  My last blog to be sent home.  The rest of my entries I’ll be able to type in myself….on my new laptop!  Yes, that’s right, G.I. Jules has entered the 2000’s and has invested in a laptop.  I first have to wait for it to arrive with my wonderful parents…NEXT week!

So, I’ve reached the end of BCT, Tomorrow morning we step off to head out to the field for four days.  After that, all we have to do is out process, and return our gear, and practice for GRADUATION!  It’s been quite the ride.  I kinda relate it to high school in a way.  You make some lifelong friends, learn about who you are, screw around a lot, and in the end you’re sad to say goodbye, glad to leave, and never want to return again.  I can’t wait to tell you all about the next 10 days, and I’ll actually be able to type it out myself!
