Ah just kidding. I was just gonna let everyone know that I enlisted in the Army this past weekend. I leave for basic training on Jan. 13th. [headbang] I'll be at Ft. Jackson S.C. and doing my AIT (job) training at Ft. Gordon GA. So I'll still be in the South baby!!! I'll miss talking to you guys when I leave [bigcry], and the one thing the really sucks is that I won't be here for the Autox that next weekend. DAMMIT!

That's awsome, Lolly. My brother, Patrick, just graduated Basic/AIT in Missouri on December 10th. He's going to be a Military Policeman. Also, my friend John just graduated from SC, I believe, as a Mechanic. Somewhere in that area. Or maybe it was GA. whatever, it was in the south somewhere. lol.

But anyway, Good luck to you, man![clap]

Have fun in Basic and AIT. It certainly isn't difficult anymore. Just do your best. Check out this website for Ft Gordon. http://www.gordon.army.mil/ Scroll down to enlisted training and click. Your mos is listed there.
I am retired and was in Signal for twenty years. I was also an instructor many years ago.
Good Luck

Is there a BWW in Mobile now?

I love their food (just wasn't willing to sit in the cold and wait an hour to eat it) and that would make a good spot for a small going away party.
