I am leaving for Basic Training and Advanced Individual Training in the MOS of Military Police in about a week. I will be busy getting things together this week, preparing for my adventure ahead. The first ten weeks of training will turn me into a soldier. The next ten weeks I will be learning the skills it takes to become a military police officer. I will not be back home until June. My first ten weeks, I will be able to receive and write letters as my form of communication. I might get lucky and be able to have a phone call or two, but that is left up to my drill sergeants. My second ten weeks I will hopefully be able to have more communication freedoms at times, such as internet and cell phone usage.
Here is my plan I came up with to share my experiences with you in real-time. I am going to write out a blog and send it in the mail to my girlfriend who will then type it out and post it here on this very blog page. So be sure to bookmark this page or follow the blog by e-mail to stay updated. It shall be really interesting! I will have stories to tell for sure! I will try to get a blog written and sent once at least once every week. I am not exactly sure how much personal time I will get. Again, that all depends on my drill sergeants.
I will post my training site address on this blog as well so that I can receive letters from anyone wanting to send them to me. Nothing can be sent to me except paper and ink. I cannot receive any pictures or any other items.
Everything will be posted here to maximize the number or readers who would want to be informed what basic training for the Army is all about. Please share this post on Facebook any other social media website for others to see.
I am excited to see where this adventure takes me. I am going to enter this program full-force and leave nothing behind. I am going to become the best American soldier I can be. I am ready to step up and be a leader for other soldiers who need someone to follow and look up to. I am going to become physically and mentally tough. I am going to live the Army values, Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage.
Until next time,
