Shipping out

Well been here for awhile now, first time posting here. I am actually shipping on the 15th of this month to Army boot and AIT for 31B at Ft Lost in the Woods(Leonard Wood), MO. Hopefully all goes as planned.

Ha. I've been stationed at FLW for a little over two years right now though I'm a Cpl in the Marines.

Not much out here tbh.

FLW is what you make it. I had a great time with my friends while I was there. If you get stationed there, which is highly likely because you are going to be an Engineer, St Louis is a good time, bit of a drive so get a hotel if you go to party. I was stationed there for a little over a year. I am now stationed at Fort Hood, TX. Good Luck with Basic and AIT. My advice for you is keep the Drill SGT's happy and make friends with everyone in your Platoon or try to.

Whoops. I was thinking 21B for some reason. I have a few MP friends. My room mate was also a 31B when I was Single, living in the Barracks at FLW. I am a 91E, used to be 44E (Machinist) now the Army calls it Allied Trades Specialist. Get as much training as you can handle. When you get your E5, look into being a Dog Handler as a MP or maybe CID. Both of those guys had good gigs when I was in Afghanistan. I am reclassing to 89D in January, so back to the TRADOC World for me.

Have fun. Word of advice. Try your best to keep records of everything. Medical, promotion, awards..........it's a pain to try to locate them years down the road. VA lost my records so I can tell you how much of a pain it is.
