This past weekend I had my first drill with my MP unit in Plymouth, Indiana. I know I am going to love it there. This is going to be my home for quite some time, as long as I am a MP. I got introduced to my chain of command and they all seem like great leaders. They want the best for the company and are working towards being the best MP unit in the state. My team leader is awesome. I am in second platoon in the first squad. In my team, I have my team leader, and two other soldiers besides myself. The group of four is the team that will work together, and ride together, in a Humvee if ever deployed. This company just returned in November from about a year in Afghanistan, so we have a two-year rest period before we are eligible to be called up for another deployment. I think it would be awesome to go on a deployment. I imagine it will happen at least once before I leave the military. As of right now, I am not sure if I will re-up after my six years is done with. It’s just a decision I will have to make when that time will come around.
I get pretty pumped up after every drill weekend and am all hooah Army. I should be getting promoted soon, but I will have to talk to my team leader about that. As of now, I am very happy with my unit and have already met some awesome soldiers!
